Women At DC Comics Watch – November 2015 Solicits: 24 Female Creators On 23 Books

After four months in which DC’s new, supposedly diverse mini-relaunch resulted in their lowest totals for solicited female creators in some time, October was a step up into the ballpark of DC’s past highs. It wasn’t their best month of the year, but it was considerably better. November looks to be a slight step downContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – November 2015 Solicits: 24 Female Creators On 23 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – October 2015 Solicits: 27 Different Female Creators On 22 Different Books

DC’s track record with female creators since their #DCYou mini-relaunch has been odd. On the one hand, they’ve topped Marvel every month thus far, but on the other hand they’ve been far below their pre-#DCYou numbers for female creators for four straight months, and by a considerable margin. It’s not been an impressive run; goingContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – October 2015 Solicits: 27 Different Female Creators On 22 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – September 2015 Solicits: 19 Different Female Creators On 16 Different Comics

Since June’s #DCYou initiative and mini-relaunch, DC Comics has certainly been consistent in its hiring, posting the same number of female creators in 3 of the 4 months we have solicit information for thus far. However, in doing so they remain consistently below the number of women they were hiring before #DCYou, and by aContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – September 2015 Solicits: 19 Different Female Creators On 16 Different Comics”

Women At Marvel Comics Watch – August 2015 Solicits: 18 Different Female Creators On 15 Different Books

As Secret Wars rages on with a seemingly innumerable amount of tie-ins and mini-series, Marvel’s female creator ranks are slowly creeping up. Marvel’s still lagging behind their chief rival, DC Comics, but the numbers are growing nonetheless. Let’s talk a look at who’s doing what this August at Marvel: Alti Firmansyah: Star-Lord & Kitty PrydeContinue reading “Women At Marvel Comics Watch – August 2015 Solicits: 18 Different Female Creators On 15 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – August 2015 Solicits: 19 Different Female Creators On 22 Different Books

We’ve got an official name and promotional campaign for DC’s mini-relaunch this August, DCYou, but so far DC isn’t exactly living up to their supposed focus on diversity when it comes to female creators. The numbers for June and July were much lower than we saw earlier this year at DC, by half in termsContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – August 2015 Solicits: 19 Different Female Creators On 22 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – July 2015 Solicits: DC’s Lowest Month of the Year, 15 Different Female Creators on 16 Different Books

When June’s numbers for female creators came in lower than what we’d been seeing from DC previously in the year, I was surprised but hoped it was just an off month. I had high hopes for DC’s mini-relaunch, especially after their impressive upswing of female creators thus far in 2015. But now, in the secondContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – July 2015 Solicits: DC’s Lowest Month of the Year, 15 Different Female Creators on 16 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – June 2015 Solicits: A Disappointing Month For DC’s Mini-Relaunch, 19 Different Female Creators on 21 Different Books

I was very excited for the June solicits to come out, because DC has been having a great 2015 thus far. They’ve bested their previous highs for female creators on multiple occasions, and even maintained high numbers through their “Convergence” event. Events have rarely seen DC’s strongest effort when it comes to female creators, soContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – June 2015 Solicits: A Disappointing Month For DC’s Mini-Relaunch, 19 Different Female Creators on 21 Different Books”
