The latest “Gendercrunching” article is up over at Bleeding Cool, and DC yet again retained the higher percentage of female creators.
Both publishers were down in April, but DC came in at 12.1% female creators overall, while Marvel trailed behind at 10.5% overall, making this the fifth month in a row that DC’s topped Marvel. Marvel really needs to get it together; there was a time when they beat DC for about a year straight.
We also check in on some other publishers: Dark Horse, Dynamite, IDW, and Boom. There are some encouraging numbers from each publisher, as well as significant growth for 3 of the 4 of them, and the highest numbers we’ve ever seen from any publisher courtesy of Boom.
