Women In Comics Statistics: DC And Marvel, October 2014 In Review


My latest “Gendercrunching” column went up last Friday at Bleeding Cool, and it really wasn’t a great month for either of the Big Two publishers.

DC certainly improved on the creative side of things, with some of the highest totals for female creators we’ve seen since this project began, but the dearth of women in editorial continued to tank their numbers overall. They rose slightly in terms of overall female creators, hitting 8.7%, but this remains well below their past average. Marvel came in higher at 10.8% overall, posting a solid gain from the September total, but they remain below average as well.

We also looked at three other publishers. Image had the highest percentage of female creators at 17.3%, Dark Horse trailed behind at 13.3%, and IDW came in at 11%. Hopefully the publishers we’ll visit next month will post better numbers.

Head over to Bleeding Cool for all of the “Gendercrunching” stats!
