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 Watch, January 2019 Solicits: 29 Creators on 29 Books

Marvel closed out 2018 with solid gains in terms of female and non-binary creator representation, bouncing back well after some terribly low numbers last winter to plateau at a relatively decent level. The numbers aren’t great by any means, but they’re now consistently not bad, and that’s what counts for progress when it comes toContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, January 2019 Solicits: 29 Creators on 29 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – March 2015 Solicits: 23 Different Female Creators On 26 Different Books

After breaking their record total for female creators several months in a row, a drop from DC was pretty much inevitable at some point and it’s come with the March 2015 solicits. The drop is bigger than I’d like to see; losing nearly a quarter of the female creators in one month is quite aContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – March 2015 Solicits: 23 Different Female Creators On 26 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – February 2015 Solicits: 30 Female Creators On 35 Different Books

Last month, after DC broke their record for female creators in their solicits yet again, I was wondering when they might hit the mark of 30 different women. Turns out, it was this month, with DC breaking their record once more in their February solicits. I’ve been expecting a drop off after so many monthsContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – February 2015 Solicits: 30 Female Creators On 35 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – January 2015 Solicits

It’s a brand new year, solicitswise, and DC is kicking it off right with a huge amount of female creators, the most we’ve seen from either DC or Marvel since this project began. The numbers are massive, so much so that I’m instituting a new system. When there were only 2 or 3 women writingContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – January 2015 Solicits”

Women At DC Comics Watch – December 2014 Solicits

These articles used to be so easy to write. DC would have 4 or 5 female creators in their solicits, I’d list them all, say something snarky, and be done with it. But now, DC has a lot more women making their comics. It’s still a small minority, but it’s growing all the time andContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – December 2014 Solicits”

Women At DC Comics Watch – November 2014 Solicits

After years of ludicrously subpar representation, DC Comics has started to increase their number of female creators. In November, should the solicits hold true, they’ll hit a new high for combined cover artists, writers, and interior artists. DC’s progress over the past several months has been a lovely change of pace, and with lots ofContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – November 2014 Solicits”
