Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, February 2020 Solicits, 28 Creators on 25 Books

The New Year started off poorly for Marvel, with sizeable losses in their overall total of female and non-binary creators, but the publisher is set to bounce back in February with some higher numbers. After such a steady 2019, it’s a tad worrisome that Marvel is returning to its old back and forth ways thusContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, February 2020 Solicits, 28 Creators on 25 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, January 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 28 Books

Marvel’s numbers for female and non-binary creators bounced back in December after a sub-par autumn, but the publisher is set to start the New Year by erasing all of those gains. While there’s decent representation across the line, the total number of different creators is the lowest we’ve seen from Marvel in some time. It’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, January 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 28 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, December 2019 Solicits: 28 Creators on 26 Books

Unlike their Distinguished Competition, Marvel doesn’t fret December this far out. I’m sure there will be some sort of scheduling situation when the month actually comes. Releasing comics on Christmas Day seems like a bad idea. But nothing looks amiss in this round of solicits. Marvel doesn’t provide specific release dates with theirs, so it’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 28 Creators on 26 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 25 Creators on 25 Books

November has DC back on a regular four-week schedule, but the publisher’s output remains high and we’re seeing the numbers for female and non-binary creators continuing to hold steady. Hopefully this marks a change for DC, who have been unimpressive with representation throughout the year. Let’s take a look at who’s doing what this November:Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 25 Creators on 25 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, October 2019 Solicits: 27 Creators on 27 Books

October has five Wednesdays, which means an extra round of comics hitting shops this month. The solicits confirm what we’ve noticed since DC reduced its output: Fewer books means fewer opportunities for female and non-binary creators, beyond simple proportionality, and the inverse is true. Let’s take a look at who’s doing what at DC inContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, October 2019 Solicits: 27 Creators on 27 Books”
