Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, August 2020 Solicits, 17 Creators on 13 Books

And we’re back! The pandemic shut down comics for a while, and things are still a little wonky with DC moving on from Diamond, but the good news is that new comics books are coming out again. We last had solicits for the June books, but that went entirely out the window. Now, with thingsContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, August 2020 Solicits, 17 Creators on 13 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, June 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 19 Books

The numbers keep coming, both fast and furiously, because I am lousy with spare time right now! I’m actually writing this two weeks before it’s even going to post. Given how things are going, I can’t possibly imagine how the world will be when this goes up. I hope you’re all still doing well! Also,Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, June 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 19 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, May 2020 Solicits, 20 Creators on 14 Books

We’re going to keep rolling with our stats this week, because we sure do have a lot of spare time now! We might even have the June numbers up next week, at this rate. Also, again, please support your local comic shops if you can during this time of self-isolation. See if they offer mailContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, May 2020 Solicits, 20 Creators on 14 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”

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”

Wonder Woman #76 Review: Mother and Child Reunions

After the suitably epic, oversized Wonder Woman #75, this issue takes a break from battle and revelations in favour of something a little quieter. It’s a nice pause after the action and adventure of the past few outings, a well deserved breather as characters adjust to their new realities and the opportunities they present. ThereContinue reading “Wonder Woman #76 Review: Mother and Child Reunions”

Wonder Woman #75 Review: The Battle for Themyscira

I don’t usually start my reviews with a spoiler, but if you read last week’s issue then you knew this was coming: Diana, princess of the Amazons, has returned to Themyscira. Which at first glance doesn’t seem like a huge deal until you remember that, apart from “Year One,” she hasn’t been to her realContinue reading “Wonder Woman #75 Review: The Battle for Themyscira”
