Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, March 2019 Solicits: 32 Creators on 27 Books

When I write up these posts, I have to go through all the entries below, italicizing the titles and consolidating the different entries for each creator. With DC, it’s a pretty quick job these days. I’m done before I know it. With Marvel, it’s much more involved. There are a lot of female and non-binaryContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, March 2019 Solicits: 32 Creators on 27 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, February 2019 Solicits – 31 Creators on 29 Books

Marvel’s starting the New Year right. After coming in just shy of thirty different female creators for the past few rounds of solicits, they’ve crossed that line with their February offerings. Now the publisher is in the ballpark of their past highs for the first time in a long time. It’s been an interesting roadContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, February 2019 Solicits – 31 Creators on 29 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, January 2019 Solicits: 29 Creators on 29 Books

Marvel closed out 2018 with solid gains in terms of female and non-binary creator representation, bouncing back well after some terribly low numbers last winter to plateau at a relatively decent level.

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, November 2018 Solicits: 29 Creators on 28 Books

When the November solicits were released last month, it looked like Marvel was taking a big step in terms of representation and were moving toward finishing the year on a high note. Then things changed. The numbers didn’t crater by any means, but a big jump got noticeably smaller. It’s an odd set of circumstances,Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, November 2018 Solicits: 29 Creators on 28 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, November 2018 Solicits: 20 Creators on 21 Books

DC is officially in a rut when it comes to female and non-binary creators. After losing mainstays on this list like Bombshells United and the “Young Animal” line, the bulk of those creators are no longer at DC while some creative changes and the debut of a new Vertigo slate have barely erased the losses.Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, November 2018 Solicits: 20 Creators on 21 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, October 2018 Solicits: 25 Creators on 23 Books

Marvel has A LOT going on in October. A ton of new series and minis, an array of one-shots, a big “Spider-geddon” event, plus all of their usual fare. Their output is in the ballpark of 85 new comic books for the month, about 10 more than they usually release. The increase in production hasn’tContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, October 2018 Solicits: 25 Creators on 23 Books”
