The new “Gendercrunching” column is up at Bleeding Cool, and while Marvel fell and DC rose from their June totals, Marvel retained the higher overall percentage of female creators for the second straight month.
Marvel came in at 11.1% female creators, with DC close behind at 10.9%. Both numbers are fairly average, and are far behind where both publishers were just a year ago.
We also take a look at female characters at the Big Two, following up on some stats I tabulated six months ago. Nothing is worse, which is good to see, but there’s a lot of the same or slightly better. DC and Marvel are slowly crawling toward more equal representation, though it looks like it’s going to be a very long road.
