Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, March 2018 Solicits: 26 Creators on 24 Books

After a couple of months of slight gains, female and non-binary creator representation at DC Comics is set to stay about the same this March.

DC’s been stalled in the low toContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, March 2018 Solicits: 26 Creators on 24 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, February 2018 Solicits: 26 Creators on 27 Books

DC’s female creator representation is set to increase slightly in February, marking a second straight month of gains for the publisher. The growth is encouraging yet underwhelming; yes, things are moving in a positive direction, but it’s happening at a very slow rate and DC still remains well below their recent highs.

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, January 2018 Solicits: 24 Creators on 25 Books

I’ll say this for DC Comics: They’ve become very consistent in their female and non-binary creator representation.

But relative to months previous and to Marvel’s output, DC’s not been especially low or especially highContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, January 2018 Solicits: 24 Creators on 25 Books”

At DC, the solicits for November mark their lowest total in well over a year, and thisContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch – November 2017 Solicits, 23 Creators on 25 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – May 2015 Solicits: 26 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Books

As the second and final month of “Convergence” wraps up, DC Comics’ female representation ticks down somewhat from the numbers in the April solicits to their second lowest total of the year thus far. Nonetheless, it’s still far better than where they were at any point in 2014, or several years previous. Let’s take aContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – May 2015 Solicits: 26 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – April 2015 Solicits: 32 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Comics

DC’s 2015 solicits have been quite good for female creators thus far, but I’ve been worried about April. With the regular New 52 books replaced by “Convergence” event titles, a lot of regular creators would be gone and DC generally doesn’t have the best track record for bringing in female characters on event books. ButContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – April 2015 Solicits: 32 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Comics”
