Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, April 2020 Solicits, 29 Creators on 21 Books

Self-isolation means it’s a good time to catch up on female and non-binary creator representation at the Big Two! Before we do, though, we should all remember that our local comics retailers are facing difficulties during this period. If you’re looking to buy the great titles listed below but are avoiding public spaces, check inContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, April 2020 Solicits, 29 Creators on 21 Books”

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 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 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 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 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, February 2019 Solicits – 18 Creators on 15 Books

Well then. DC’s January solicits didn’t give us a lot of hope that the publisher was going to start the New Year off strong in terms of female and non-binary creator representation, and the February solicits haven’t helped matters at all. We’re back into the teens, which is just ridiculous. Embarrassing, really. In the yearContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, February 2019 Solicits – 18 Creators on 15 Books”
