I will explain the problem more clearly. I want to create a page which will show three blocks.

At the top: It will show one post . ( An issue of a Magazine. PDF in a post)

At the center: It will show all the articles from the magazine. ( Posts from the issue of magazine)

At the bottom: It will show other issues of magazines.

How to solve this problem? I thought of having one category for each issue of a magazine and the articles belonging to that magazine. Is it feasible?

I'd say you'd be looking at custom post types. Google custom post types and taxonomies and do a bit of study on that front and then you should know more about what you want to actually display. I could be misunderstanding you but doubt if categories in the blog is where to go with this, CPT's do something similar but are much more flexible. If you work out a structure that suits you in terms of CPT's then getting it to display how you want on whatever template pages you want is not going to be incredibly difficult, but you need to work out the structure that you use to store them in WordPress first. I would advise the Custom Post Types UI plugin as a way to play around. Then you may want to keep that or else it can give you custom code.
