Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 28 Creators on 26 Books

Unlike their Distinguished Competition, Marvel doesn’t fret December this far out. I’m sure there will be some sort of scheduling situation when the month actually comes. Releasing comics on Christmas Day seems like a bad idea. But nothing looks amiss in this round of solicits. Marvel doesn’t provide specific release dates with theirs, so it’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 28 Creators on 26 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 31 Creators on 24 Books

DC likes to get tricky with its solicits in December, and this year is no exception. Christmas is a Wednesday so comic shops won’t be open, and DC’s not putting out any books that week. Also, the next Wednesday is New Year’s Day, and while shops likely won’t be open then either, DC seems toContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 31 Creators on 24 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 22 Creators on 23 Books

Oh, dear. Marvel’s had a really strong 2019, with consistent, high representation for female and non-binary creators. It’s been month after month of LONG lists of amazing writers and artists. Until the fall, that is. The past two months have been relatively subpar, and now the November solicits mark Marvel’s lowest totals for the yearContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 22 Creators on 23 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 25 Creators on 25 Books

November has DC back on a regular four-week schedule, but the publisher’s output remains high and we’re seeing the numbers for female and non-binary creators continuing to hold steady. Hopefully this marks a change for DC, who have been unimpressive with representation throughout the year. Let’s take a look at who’s doing what this November:Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 25 Creators on 25 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, October 2019 Solicits: 30 Creators on 29 Books

Marvel looks to hold steady across the board with their October solicits. There aren’t any huge changes from their September numbers, which is unfortunate given that the September numbers were a definite step down from what’s been a stellar year of female and non-binary creator representation at the publisher. Let’s take a look at who’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, October 2019 Solicits: 30 Creators on 29 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, October 2019 Solicits: 27 Creators on 27 Books

October has five Wednesdays, which means an extra round of comics hitting shops this month. The solicits confirm what we’ve noticed since DC reduced its output: Fewer books means fewer opportunities for female and non-binary creators, beyond simple proportionality, and the inverse is true. Let’s take a look at who’s doing what at DC inContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, October 2019 Solicits: 27 Creators on 27 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 30 Creators on 27 Books

As we continue our catching up, September marks a slight drop for female and non-binary creators at Marvel. The publisher has maintained a relatively impressive level of representation for some time, and this may well be a momentary blip. That being said, consistency in representation is out of character for Marvel, so we’ll have toContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 30 Creators on 27 Books”
