I’ve got a new, special edition “Gendercrunching” post up at Bleeding Cool that digs into DC’s June mini-relaunch to see how well the #DCYou initiative did with female creators. The result? About the same as before.
#DCYou posted an overall percentage of female creators of 8.7%, the exact same percentage they posted in March, their last regular month of comics before “Convergence” took over in April and May. Most categories were about the same as before, with only editorial making significant changes. It’s good to see that DC didn’t do any worse, but it’s disheartening to see that in their supposedly new and diverse line we didn’t see any real progress when it came to female creators.
