Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, July 2018 Solicits: 22 Creators on 18 Books

Marvel is in an odd spot with female and non-binary creators right now. After a truly abysmal spring with some of the lowest numbers we’ve seen from them in some time, things have improved somewhat.

Marvel’s been in the high 30s in the past, and their currentContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, July 2018 Solicits: 22 Creators on 18 Books”

Women at DC Comics Watch – November 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 22 Books

After a slow start to their “Rebirth” initiative, with weak numbers for female creators for the first three months of the new books over the summer, DC’s numbers have picked up considerably throughout their fall solicits.

Let’s go through the list for Marvel’sContinue reading “Women At Marvel Comics Watch – February 2015 Solicits: 11 Female Creators On 12 Books”

Women At Marvel Comics Watch – May 2014 Solicits

Marvel looks like they’re going to have a really great month for female creators this May, but first let’s talk about covers.  I always put together a little collage of covers featuring female characters each month, and with the May solicits I was presently surprised to find that a) I had an abundance of female-starringContinue reading “Women At Marvel Comics Watch – May 2014 Solicits”

My 10 Favourite Comic Book Things Of 2013

These aren’t my favourite comic book series or graphic novels or creators or comic moments of 2013, these are ALL of those categories combined into one list.  There’d be a ton of overlap if I divided them up by category, so listing all of my favourites from the year under the vague heading of “things”Continue reading “My 10 Favourite Comic Book Things Of 2013”
