Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, June 2020 Solicits, 34 Creators on 29 Books

Continuing this very productive first week of self isolation, this is the sixth of these posts I’ve written so far. It’ll be in the future when you read it, though, at least two weeks away. What will I be counting then? How many Cheerios are in a box, perhaps? Time will tell. As always, comicContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, June 2020 Solicits, 34 Creators on 29 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, May 2020 Solicits, 29 Creators on 33 Books

The stats keep on coming with our look at female and non-binary creators at Marvel, because I’m social distancing and staying inside and what’s more fun than tabulating creator numbers? As always, please support your local comics retailers during this difficult time if you can. Small businesses are getting hit hard, so check in withContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, May 2020 Solicits, 29 Creators on 33 Books”

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 DC Comics, February 2020 Solicits, 33 Creators on 29 Books

It’s February, and that means no more festive shenanigans! Thank goodness. Christmas being on a Wednesday really complicated the last couple rounds of solicits. We’ve got a normal month here, and a strong showing from DC. I was a little worried about widespread representation after January was dominated by female and non-binary creators working onContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, February 2020 Solicits, 33 Creators on 29 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 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, December 2019 Solicits: 31 Creators on 24 Books

DC likes to get tricky with its solicits in December, and this year is no exception. Christmas is a Wednesday so comic shops won’t be open, and DC’s not putting out any books that week. Also, the next Wednesday is New Year’s Day, and while shops likely won’t be open then either, DC seems toContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 31 Creators on 24 Books”
