Last October as we all enjoyed autumn and the fun times that go along with it; we had an abundance of new magazines to savor and appreciate while we carved pumpkins and ate leftover Halloween candy – 62 new titles to be exact – 21 with promised frequency. This time around our fall harvest is more bountiful than ever – with 123 new titles – 32 with regular frequency and 91 specials, annuals and bookazines. To say Mr. Magazine™ is thrilled and overjoyed would be an understatement.
In our frequency titles, puzzles and adult coloring books dominated the newsstand with a combined total of 11 new magazines out there for our pleasure and relaxation. And in the specials, annuals and bookazines, there was everything from tributes to the late Arnold Palmer to Christmas titles guaranteed to put us in the Spirit for the holidays. Overall, October was a month to remember and a glorious moment in time for magazines.
Above are six of the great October frequency titles. And below is the chart outlining all the stats of October 2016 compared with October 2015.
