Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, June 2020 Solicits, 34 Creators on 29 Books

Continuing this very productive first week of self isolation, this is the sixth of these posts I’ve written so far. It’ll be in the future when you read it, though, at least two weeks away. What will I be counting then? How many Cheerios are in a box, perhaps? Time will tell. As always, comicContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, June 2020 Solicits, 34 Creators on 29 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, January 2020 Solicits, 31 Creators on 21 Books

With the December solicits, DC listed a bunch of their titles for the first week of January, and I decided to keep those books out of the official tally. Most of the comics were DC’s usual first week of the month fare, just scheduled early, so they fit better with the January solicits. So withContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, January 2020 Solicits, 31 Creators on 21 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 DC Comics Watch, January 2018 Solicits: 24 Creators on 25 Books

I’ll say this for DC Comics: They’ve become very consistent in their female and non-binary creator representation. The numbers aren’t particularly strong, situated in the mid-20s when the publisher has been well into the 30s in the past. But relative to months previous and to Marvel’s output, DC’s not been especially low or especially highContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, January 2018 Solicits: 24 Creators on 25 Books”

Wonder Woman’s February 2017 Covers and Solicits

This February looks to be another busy month for Wonder Woman and her wider world, both in terms of single issues and some fun new collections. It continues to be an excellent time to be a Wonder Woman fan; the movie on the horizon really seems to be ramping up comic production at DC. SoContinue reading “Wonder Woman’s February 2017 Covers and Solicits”

Women at Marvel Comics Watch – April 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 24 Books

Usually my write ups for Marvel’s April solicits are a bit of a downer. Marvel often runs a special variant cover promotion in March that focuses on female creators and bumps up their numbers, and then everything falls back down to Earth in April. But not this April! Not only are Marvel’s numbers up afterContinue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – April 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 24 Books”

Women At Marvel Comics Watch – March 2015 Solicits: 20 Different Female Creators On 26 Different Books

March looks like it’s going to be a great month for women at Marvel, largely due to their special “Women of Marvel” variant cover line-up. Their numbers are much higher overall with the addition of these many great artists, though Marvel’s numbers for women INSIDE the books remain fairly low. It’s nice to see femaleContinue reading “Women At Marvel Comics Watch – March 2015 Solicits: 20 Different Female Creators On 26 Different Books”
