Blackwell the Magician never had a story of his own, he was merely used in ads promoting subscriptions to Lucky Comics, Better Comics, Bing Bang Comics, and Rocket Comics.

Public Domain Appearances

  • Lucky Comics vol. 1 #8 (and presumably other issues of Better Comics, Bing Bang Comics, and Rocket Comics as well).


  • The ads featuring Blackwell are notable for not having any address to send the subscription form to (at least the first few times).
  • Marvel used an identically-named and similar character in the 1967 animated Spider Man series (though it is probably a coincidence).
