Writer Kiel Phegley Let Go By Wizard
posted May 22, 2008

The writer Kiel Phegley confirmed with CR last night that he was let go by Wizard on Wednesday, although he declined to comment further on any matter related to his dismissal. Phegley had done a number of high-profile features for the publication and its attendant mini-empire. He covered the New York Comic-Con and was spearheading their Indie Jones on-line effort. Wizard has dismissed significant number of staff members over the last several months. The company has also placed its office/warehouse on the real estate market for what they claimed was exploratory, informational purposes.
