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”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 16 Books

I’ve been on deadline over the summer and got behind with these posts, so expect a blitz of solicits statistics over the next few weeks as I try to catch up. I didn’t miss a whole lot in September, though, as we’ve got another humdrum month from DC. Let’s take a look at who’s doingContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 16 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, August 2019 Solicits: 37 Creators on 28 Books

August is a big month for Marvel, with a “landmark” thousandth issue from a massive team of creators set to hit comic shops. The numbering is completely arbitrary, and it’s not even a real series. Marvel saw the success DC had with its legitimate Action Comics #1000 and Detective Comics #1000 and, since there areContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, August 2019 Solicits: 37 Creators on 28 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, August 2019 Solicits: 15 Creators on 16 Books

DC’s numbers for female and non-binary creators haven’t been high for a while, in part because they’ve trimmed back their line and fewer books means fewer creators across the board. But still, even in this new reality, DC’s representation for August is a step down from what we’ve been seeing lately. While the publisher’s ZoomContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, August 2019 Solicits: 15 Creators on 16 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, July 2019 Solicits: 38 Creators on 30 Books

Marvel’s July 2019 solicits may mark the highest number of female and non-binary creators we’ve seen from either Big Two publisher in the several years I’ve been doing these pieces. I say “may” in part because I’ve done quite a lot of them and skimming back through years and years of posts to check seemsContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, July 2019 Solicits: 38 Creators on 30 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, July 2019 Solicits: 18 Creators on 20 Books

July is a month with five Wednesdays, which usually means more comics from DC. Typically, we get annuals and other one-shot specials in that last week, since most of their ongoing books are released on a regular schedule (Wonder Woman is out on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month, for example), and there’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, July 2019 Solicits: 18 Creators on 20 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, June 2019 Solicits: 35 Creators on 36 Books

On the one hand, Marvel will have nearly twice as many female and non-binary creators as DC this June. On the other hand, Marvel is also putting out nearly twice as many books as DC this June. It’s hard to compare the two publishers directly these days, but what’s undoubtedly true is that while DC’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, June 2019 Solicits: 35 Creators on 36 Books”
