*68 New Magazine Launches In May: A Very Healthy Month Indeed…May 31, 2016
May brought a profusion of glorious new titles to our summer garden just in time for the upcoming vacation reading most of us plan on doing. From titles who have been around for a bit, but just started to appear for the first time on newsstands, such as THC: The Hemp Connoisseur, with its first national issue, to Posi+tive – another online publication that’s discovering the power of print, May was a month with a flourishing frequency population of 25 new titles… Of course, as you can tell by the cover images, some of the new titles were late discoveries or their first arrival to the newsstands such as Military Kids’ Life, GayLetter, Illumine, and Providence. However, as my policy has been and will continue to be, no magazine will be featured on the Launch Monitor unless I have a physical copy of the new magazine. Better late than never!
Combine that very healthy number of 25 with 43 brand new specials out there for our reading pleasure and the total for May was 68 new magazines on our nation’s newsstands! A magnificent May indeed…
Enjoy! And keep in mind, if it is not ink on paper, it is not a magazine.
*Total for May changed from 70 to 68 due to 2 duplications of Special titles
