Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, September 2018 Solicits: 26 Creators on 21 Books

After what has been a rough year thus far for female and non-binary creator representation at Marvel, the publisher seems to have settled into a bit of a groove now. Unconventionally, too. Maybe about half of the gigs listed below are steady, ongoing jobs. The rest are variant covers, one-shots, or mini-series, positions that don’tContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, September 2018 Solicits: 26 Creators on 21 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, April 2018 Solicits: 17 Creators on 15 Books

So this is an unusual month for Marvel. Their female creator representation has grown a whopping 70% from March, a massive gain for the publisher. However, even with this jump their numbers are still terrible. Better than in March, sure, but the March numbers were abominable. Like, ridiculously bad relative to the levels Marvel hasContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, April 2018 Solicits: 17 Creators on 15 Books”

Women at Marvel Comics Watch – June 2017 Solicits, 23 Women on 26 Books

Continuing our catch up on the latest-ish solicits, today we turn to Marvel. After posting record breaking numbers in March, their June 2017 solicits again feature considerably fewer female creators in the mix.

Marvel’s proven quiteContinue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – June 2017 Solicits, 23 Women on 26 Books”

LoContinue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – May 2017 Solicits, 22 Women on 24 Books”

Women at Marvel Comics Watch – April 2017 Solicits, 24 Female Creators on 19 Books

After posting the highest number of female creators we’ve ever seen from either DC or Marvel last month, Marvel failed to match their record this month. In fact, they weren’t even close. Now, this isn’t a huge surprise; the story of these stats is always two steps forward, one step back. A high is rarelyContinue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – April 2017 Solicits, 24 Female Creators on 19 Books”

Women at Marvel Comics Watch, March 2017 Solicits: 37 Women on 33 Books, A New Record

Marvel’s on quite a run with female creators rights now. March will mark the publisher’s eighth straight month with more than 30 different female creators in the mix, and Marvel is set to best their record number for combined female creators and books that they set in December. It’s really quite an impressive streak, allContinue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch, March 2017 Solicits: 37 Women on 33 Books, A New Record”

Women at Marvel Comics – February 2017 Solicits, 31 Women on 23 Books

Marvel is set to be below their recent highs in female creator representation this February, but it’s still going to be a relatively strong month for women at the publisher.
