Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, May 2018 Solicits: 23 Creators on 20 Books

May looks to be another pedestrian month for female and non-binary creator representation at DC Comics. Despite a lot of big changes and new initiatives, the numbers have been sitting in the mid-20s for several months now. While it’s not the worst we’ve seen from the publisher, they’ve shown themselves to be capable of farContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, May 2018 Solicits: 23 Creators on 20 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, April 2018 Solicits: 23 Creators on 23 Books

April looks to be another subpar month for female and non-binary creator representation at DC Comics. Not only has the publisher posted their lowest numbers of the year thus far, the total also leaves them well below their past highs. For several months now, DC’s been operating at about 2/3 of the level they’ve shownContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, April 2018 Solicits: 23 Creators on 23 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, March 2018 Solicits: 26 Creators on 24 Books

After a couple of months of slight gains, female and non-binary creator representation at DC Comics is set to stay about the same this March. Leveling off after a bit of growth isn’t entirely unexpected, but this current plateau is pretty underwhelming relative to the publisher’s past highs.

DC’s female creator representation is set to increase slightly in February, marking a second straight month of gains for the publisher.

Moreover, the publisher’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, February 2018 Solicits: 26 Creators on 27 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, January 2018 Solicits: 24 Creators on 25 Books

I’ll say this for DC Comics: They’ve become very consistent in their female and non-binary creator representation. The numbers aren’t particularly strong, situated in the mid-20s when the publisher has been well into the 30s in the past. But relative to months previous and to Marvel’s output, DC’s not been especially low or especially highContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, January 2018 Solicits: 24 Creators on 25 Books”

Women and NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, December 2017 Solicits, 23 Creators on 25 Books

As you may recall, DC’s November 2017 solicits featured their lowest total of female and non-binary creators in some time. While things have shifted around somewhat with the December solicits, with some past creators gone and some new creators added, the numbers have turned out exactly the same. It says a lot about representation atContinue reading “Women and NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, December 2017 Solicits, 23 Creators on 25 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch – November 2017 Solicits, 23 Creators on 25 Books

I’m not sure what’s going on at either of the Big Two superhero publishers right now, but both DC and Marvel are well off their recent highs when it comes to the representation of female and non-binary creators. At DC, the solicits for November mark their lowest total in well over a year, and thisContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch – November 2017 Solicits, 23 Creators on 25 Books”
