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”

The stats keep on coming with our look at female and non-binary creators at Marvel, because I’m social distancing and staying inside and what’s more fun than tabulating creator numbers? As always, please support your local comics retailers during this difficult time if you can.

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, April 2020 Solicits, 31 Creators on 31 Books

We’re all still snug at home, so let’s keep digging into female and non-binary creator stats at the Big Two! But first, a reminder: Support your local comics shop if you can.

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 DC Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 31 Creators on 24 Books

DC likes to get tricky with its solicits in December, and this year is no exception. Christmas is a Wednesday so comic shops won’t be open, and DC’s not putting out any books that week. Also, the next Wednesday is New Year’s Day, and while shops likely won’t be open then either, DC seems toContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 31 Creators on 24 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 16 Books

I’ve been on deadline over the summer and got behind with these posts, so expect a blitz of solicits statistics over the next few weeks as I try to catch up. I didn’t miss a whole lot in September, though, as we’ve got another humdrum month from DC. Let’s take a look at who’s doingContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 16 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, August 2019 Solicits: 15 Creators on 16 Books

DC’s numbers for female and non-binary creators haven’t been high for a while, in part because they’ve trimmed back their line and fewer books means fewer creators across the board. But still, even in this new reality, DC’s representation for August is a step down from what we’ve been seeing lately. While the publisher’s ZoomContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, August 2019 Solicits: 15 Creators on 16 Books”
