Women at DC Comics Watch – May 2017 Solicits, 28 Women on 21 Books

May looks to be a decent month for female creators at DC Comics, with the publisher set to post their highest number of different women for the year thus far. While the total is still somewhat below the highs that DC hit last fall, the numbers have been moving up for a couple of monthsContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – May 2017 Solicits, 28 Women on 21 Books”

Women at DC Comics Watch – March 2016 Solicits, 28 Women on 22 Books

I thought it would be fun to start off a new year of posts with some good news, so here’s what I’ve got: DC is poised to have a pretty decent March in terms of female creators, and their 2016 solicits thus far have been relatively strong.   The numbers aren’t as high as they wereContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – March 2016 Solicits, 28 Women on 22 Books”

My Top 10 Favourite Comic Books of 2015

Now that the year is almost over, it’s a good time to look back at the comic books I most enjoyed this year. Usually I like to do an all new Top 10, focusing on my new favourites, but so many books stayed ridiculously good this year that my pull list hasn’t changed a lot.Continue reading “My Top 10 Favourite Comic Books of 2015”

Women At DC Comics Watch – November 2015 Solicits: 24 Female Creators On 23 Books

After four months in which DC’s new, supposedly diverse mini-relaunch resulted in their lowest totals for solicited female creators in some time, October was a step up into the ballpark of DC’s past highs. It wasn’t their best month of the year, but it was considerably better. November looks to be a slight step downContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – November 2015 Solicits: 24 Female Creators On 23 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – October 2015 Solicits: 27 Different Female Creators On 22 Different Books

DC’s track record with female creators since their #DCYou mini-relaunch has been odd. On the one hand, they’ve topped Marvel every month thus far, but on the other hand they’ve been far below their pre-#DCYou numbers for female creators for four straight months, and by a considerable margin. It’s not been an impressive run; goingContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – October 2015 Solicits: 27 Different Female Creators On 22 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – September 2015 Solicits: 19 Different Female Creators On 16 Different Comics

Since June’s #DCYou initiative and mini-relaunch, DC Comics has certainly been consistent in its hiring, posting the same number of female creators in 3 of the 4 months we have solicit information for thus far. However, in doing so they remain consistently below the number of women they were hiring before #DCYou, and by aContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – September 2015 Solicits: 19 Different Female Creators On 16 Different Comics”

Women At DC Comics Watch – August 2015 Solicits: 19 Different Female Creators On 22 Different Books

We’ve got an official name and promotional campaign for DC’s mini-relaunch this August, DCYou, but so far DC isn’t exactly living up to their supposed focus on diversity when it comes to female creators. The numbers for June and July were much lower than we saw earlier this year at DC, by half in termsContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – August 2015 Solicits: 19 Different Female Creators On 22 Different Books”
