Women At DC Comics Watch – December 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 23 Books

In my report on the November solicits, I noted that it seemed unlikely that DC’s number of female creators would be in the low 30s again come December. There were a lot of one-shots and variant cover gigs, and those numbers are hard to sustain month-to-month. But DC did it, and has posted a strongContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – December 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 23 Books”

Women at DC Comics Watch – November 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 22 Books

After a slow start to their “Rebirth” initiative, with weak numbers for female creators for the first three months of the new books over the summer, DC’s numbers have picked up considerably throughout their fall solicits. November continues this trend and takes things a step further: The November 2016 solicits have the highest number ofContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – November 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 22 Books”

Women at DC Comics Watch – October 2016 Solicits, 28 Women on 24 Books

NOTE: This post has been substantially edited because I am a dope who missed Cecil Castellucci while doing my first count. It is now accurate and correct. DC finally had some solid female representation in their September solicits, their first relatively decent month since “Rebirth” relaunched in June. For whatever reason, whenever DC knows they’llContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – October 2016 Solicits, 28 Women on 24 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – September 2016 Solicits, 28 Women on 21 Books

DC’s not had the best run with female creators over the course of their past few rounds of solicits. Since their “Rebirth” relaunch began in June, the numbers have been well below their usual level, and far off from their previous highs. It looks like September might mark the end of this skid, but I’mContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – September 2016 Solicits, 28 Women on 21 Books”

Women at DC Comics Watch – August 2016 Solicits: Rebirth Still Low, 20 Women on 21 Books

DC Comics’ big “Rebirth” initiative has not been great for women thus far. Even though they’re adding new series every month, the numbers aren’t really changing for female creators at DC, plus the current level is far below where DC was before “Rebirth.” I don’t know what it is with DC and big events, butContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – August 2016 Solicits: Rebirth Still Low, 20 Women on 21 Books”

Women at DC Comics Watch – July 2016 Solicits: Rebirth Disappoints, 20 Women on 17 Books

We missed the first month of “Rebirth” because I was busy travelling and some things fell by the wayside, but we’re back again for the second month of DC’s new initiative and, like with every single dang new initiative DC’s done over the past several years, there are fewer women involved than in the monthsContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – July 2016 Solicits: Rebirth Disappoints, 20 Women on 17 Books”

Women at DC Comics Watch – May 2016 Solicits, 23 Women on 20 Books

In the last month before DC Comics relaunches their superhero line yet again, the publisher’s female creator representation is set to be on the low end of their current average range. Thus far in 2016, DC has had at least 20 different women writing and drawing their comics each month, and this May is noContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – May 2016 Solicits, 23 Women on 20 Books”
