Lucasfilm, Disney Publishing Worldwide, and its publishing partners announced today the second annual Star Wars Reads Day to be held this October 5, 2013. Last year, 30 authors and 1,500 costumed volunteers participated in over 1,200 Star Wars Reads Day events across North America. On October 5 of this year, Star Wars fans, authors, and artists will again come together in this multi-publisher initiative that celebrates reading and Star Wars. Participating publishing partners include Abrams, Chronicle Books, Dark Horse, Del Rey, DK, Quirk Books, Random House Audio, Scholastic, Titan Magazines, and Workman.
“Star Wars Reads Day is the kind of initiative that we at Lucasfilm love to support” says Carol Roeder, Director of Publishing at Lucasfilm. “Reading and Star Wars have gone hand-in-hand since 1976, when the novelization of the original Star Wars movie was released. Over the years, many fans have discovered the joy in reading through Star Wars books, and we hope to continue encouraging more people to read.”

“There are too many X-books out in the market. Why launch ANOTHER one?!” Those are some of the gripes you will find on the interwebs when it comes to the X-franchise. Since I grew up reading the X-Men books, I can never get enough. When word came out months ago that X-Men would be relaunched by Brian Wood as writer and Olivier Coipel on art, I was all in. Especially with fan-favorite Coipel doing the pencils. Plus X-Men stands out as being the only X-book featuring an all-female mutant cast.
