Women At DC Comics Watch – May 2015 Solicits: 26 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Books

As the second and final month of “Convergence” wraps up, DC Comics’ female representation ticks down somewhat from the numbers in the April solicits to their second lowest total of the year thus far. Nonetheless, it’s still far better than where they were at any point in 2014, or several years previous. Let’s take aContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – May 2015 Solicits: 26 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – April 2015 Solicits: 32 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Comics

DC’s 2015 solicits have been quite good for female creators thus far, but I’ve been worried about April. With the regular New 52 books replaced by “Convergence” event titles, a lot of regular creators would be gone and DC generally doesn’t have the best track record for bringing in female characters on event books. ButContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – April 2015 Solicits: 32 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Comics”

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 – September 2014 Solicits

After a stellar August, a drop in female creators isn’t a big shock, particularly with another big DC event in September. DC’s September events rarely feature many female creators and “Futures End” is no exception, but luckily the rest of the publisher’s line, particularly Vertigo, picked up some of the slack and the end resultContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – September 2014 Solicits”

Women At DC Comics Watch – August 2014 Solicits

August looks like a very busy month for female creators at DC, with several women set for multiple gigs across every division of the publisher. There’s also some good news for female characters in terms of new series, though it’s counteracted with some unfortunate cancellations. Let’s dig into the August 2014 solicits: For writers inContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – August 2014 Solicits”

Women At DC Comics Watch – July 2014 Solicits

July should be very busy for female creators at DC Comics, largely due to Vertigo but there’s some solid representation on the superhero side of things as well. It’s not a bad month for female characters either, so all together July is looking like one of DC’s better months. Let’s go through the solicits: ForContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – July 2014 Solicits”

Women At DC Comics Watch – June 2014 Solicits

DC’s had a pretty consistent year thus far, keeping their number of female creators in the double digits, and the June solicits continue this trend.  They also continue an odd trend we’ve seen recently of a lack of new titles.  Marvel’s been launching 5 or 6 books a month this year, while DC’s only beenContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – June 2014 Solicits”
