S: The Sega Magazine was a video game magazine centred around the Sega Master System and was sold in the UK.

The first issue of the magazine was only available to Master System owners who had warranty cards (or by purchasing a new game at selected retailers), and up until issue 6, the magazine was only available via subscription. It was later put on sale to the general public, though only lasted 12 issues in total before being rebranded Sega Power to allow it to cater for the Sega Mega Drive.
