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”

November is looking like another busy month for Wonder Woman, with a variety of books that could be a lot of fun. Of course, her main series isn’t great, but the rest of her titles sound intriguing. Yes, even Superman/Wonder Woman. I know, I’m surprised too. So let’s see what Wonder Woman will be upContinue reading “Wonder Woman’s November 2015 Covers and Solicits”

Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #37 Review: “Echidna, Part 2” by Caitlin Kittredge and Scott Hampton

I enjoyed the first part of “Echidna” last week, and the finale this week turned out to be even more fun. The grim, grittiness of the first installment did an excellent job establishing the setting and the tone of the story, and while this issue continued in that vein there was also some comic reliefContinue reading “Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #37 Review: “Echidna, Part 2” by Caitlin Kittredge and Scott Hampton”

Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #36 Review: “Echidna” by Caitlin Kittredge and Scott Hampton

We’ve got something a little different from Sensation Comics this week. The book isn’t beholden to any particular style, but what we usually get is standard superhero fare or something a little cuter and kid friendly.

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.

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”
