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


My latest “Gendercrunching” column is up over at Bleeding Cool, and it was yet another subpar month for both publishers.

DC’s overall percentage of female creators rose to 9.8%, but that’s still well below their regular average despite a particularly strong month for female writers and artists. Marvel topped them with 10.8% overall, but that’s not a particularly good total either; Marvel’s been on a skid for some time after spending several months in the 14% range last year.

We also visited four other publishers. Boom! led everyone else by far with a whopping 36% female creators overall, with Dynamite coming in second with a decent 14.3%. Not only did Dynamite top DC and Marvel, they’ve more than quadrupled their female representation since the last time we ran their stats. Archie trailed far behind with a paltry 2.7%, while Avatar brought up the rear with an abysmal 0%.

Head on over to Bleeding Cool for more details and stats fun!
