The Reading Meter #5: August
Published on Thursday, September 6, 2012 by

First new comic day of the month was Independence Day. Did that affect the ratings?

Not much movement up or down across the board. Some of the DC titles are stagnating though. Stormwatch is in serious danger of being cut. It’s not one of the books being axed by DC after the 12th issue, but it might be axed from my list. Two of my DC books are getting canceled, Voodoo and Resurrection Man. They might get replaced by two of the new books, Team 7 and the Amethyst book.

Valiant continues to make a strong presence. So far their first four relaunched books have been good. I hope they don’t follow the normal pattern and try to expand too much and too soon. They already have Eternal Warrior and Rai on tap to be released and Shadowman in November.

Marvel series will start to wind down as they make way for Marvel Now! That will really shake up the rankings.

Youngblood started poor and I passed on the third issue so that means that series gets the axe.
