The Reading Meter #7: October
Published on Thursday, November 1, 2012 by

October brings some changes to the Reading Meter, lots of books being dropped and some being canceled.

Today it was announced that Dynamite will be publishing a Battlestar Galactica book in 2013, with cosmic scribes Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning at the helm. This is good news. It means that I might have a Dynamite book to replace The Boys.

Due to budget reasons, a lot of DC books got the axe and got removed from the pull list. The New 52 just isn’t very good and most of the books were just mediocre.

Marvel Now! is coming and that means that most of the books are being canceled and being restarted. This means a lot of new entries onto the Meter over the coming months. Since, for the most part, the canceled books aren’t being dropped by choice and are being replaced with new books, the canceled listings will remain on the meter for a month or two, so can see how the relaunches compare to the canceled runs.

This will also be the last Reading Meter, at least until January, when it will return in a new format. I think it’s worth tracking to see how books do on a month to month basis, but not happy with this layout.

And there is big changes in my monthly reading list, so seems a good time to redo the Meter for the new year.
