Wizard Monthly was a Magic Periodical that followed The Escape Wizard both published by Charles Bohem in Atlantic City.

Volume 1, Number 1, had Harry Houdini on the cover, about to enter his Chinese Water Torture Cell. An editorial informed that the magazine was being published in place of The Escape Wizard because, of information gathered by Houdini, that publication would not be sanctioned by Federal Authorities.

After the first issue they moved to Philadelphia.
