The Glasgow Looking Glass
|'The Glasgow Looking Glass (also known as The Northern Looking Glass)|
|Publication date||11 June 1825 – 3 April 1826|
The Glasgow Looking Glass was the first mass-produced publication to tell stories using illustrations, and as such is regarded as the earliest comics magazine. The final issue was published on 3 April 1826.
The title was published by Glasgow lithographic printer John Watson and its principal strip illustrator was William Heath. The fourth issue contained History of a Coat, its first comic strip. After the fifth issue, the title was changed to The Northern Looking Glass to reflect broader Scottish concerns.
