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


My latest “Gendercrunching” column is up at Bleeding Cool, and neither Big Two publisher had a great month. This poor December capped off a generally weak year where both publishers consistently posted overall percentages for female creators far below their past highs.

DC had the higher overall percentage of female creators in December, hitting double digits for the first time in a long time with 10%. Marvel tumbled down to 8.9% overall, a surprisingly weak showing for them.

We also take a look at the year in review. Both Big Two publishers are trending downward overall, but DC has a few bright spots on the creative side of things with writers and artists trending upward over the course of the year and especially over the past few months. Editorial is the real issue for both publishers, with decimated assistant editor ranks dragging down the overall average of female creators considerably.

Head on over to Bleeding Cool for all of the stats fun!
