SEGA Mania Magazine Suddenly Ceases Publication

UPDATE 17/11/2022

All 7 issues of SEGA Mania have now been digitally preserved on the SEGAMagazines.com website which is run by the SEGA Mania team. You can browse them all by clicking here. Thanks to Peder Johnsen on Twitter for informing us.

ORIGINAL STORY

The independent SEGA fanzine SEGA Mania has officially ceased publication after only 18 months of activity. The fanzine produced 7 issues.

Lead editor Tim Hugall has cited “a multitude of factors” for the fanzine’s discontinuation. He also revealed that the fanzine never produced any profit and all the writers contributed their work for free. All proceeds made from magazine sales were put directly into the production of the next issue. You can read Tim’s entire farewell announcement by clicking here.

SEGA Mania had only just revealed the cover for their 8th issue 2 days ago which makes the cancellation strangely abrupt. All open pre-orders and subscriptions have been reportedly refunded. Unfortunately, the team have also removed all access to digital back issues and completely deactivated their social media channels – a disappointing end to a fanzine that has previously championed digital archiving.

SEGADriven want to send our best wishes to the SEGA Mania team and hope everyone moves onto bigger and better things. You can read our full review of SEGA Mania issue 1 by clicking here.
