Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, June 2019 Solicits: 18 Creators on 17 Books

DC is really committed to putting out fewer books now. When they announced that they were cutting back, I was curious to see how long it would last, but they’re sticking with it.

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, May 2019 Solicits: 33 Creators on 35 Books

Marvel’s solid 2019 is set to continue in May as the publisher’s female and non-binary creator representation remains high. It’s a stability we’re not used to seeing at Marvel, but it’s a welcome change. There’s been a strong core of creators with regular gigs thus far this year, as well as a rotating group ofContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, May 2019 Solicits: 33 Creators on 35 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, May 2019 Solicits: 21 Creators on 18 Books

DC trimming back their comic line has resulted in some shifting of the numbers for female and non-binary creators over the past few months.

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, April 2019: 32 Creators on 31 Books

Thus far, 2019 has been a strong year for female and non-binary creators at Marvel Comics. And the streak goes back further than that, too. Marvel came out of the summer with some solid gains and by November they were pretty near the level they remain at today. That’s six months of decent representation now.Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, April 2019: 32 Creators on 31 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, April 2019: 17 Creators on 17 Books

April looks to be a quiet month all around for DC Comics. May is set to bring the dawn of yet another new event series, but April is just the same old, with no new titles or big creative shifts in the mix. And the same old means another subpar month for female and non-binaryContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, April 2019: 17 Creators on 17 Books”

When I write up these posts, I have to go through all the entries below, italicizing the titles and consolidating the different entries for each creator. With DC, it’s a pretty quick job these days. I’m done before I know it. With Marvel, it’s much more involved. There are a lot of female and non-binaryContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, March 2019 Solicits: 32 Creators on 27 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, March 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 17 Books

So far, 2019 has not been a good year for female and non-binary creator representation at DC Comics. The numbers have been disappointingly low. Now, some of this is likely due to a contraction of DC’s line as a whole. They’re just not putting out as many books as they used to. But still, it’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, March 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 17 Books”
