Women + NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, August 2018 Solicits: 25 Creators on 21 Books

The year thus far has not been great for female and non-binary creator representation at Marvel, with the numbers dropping down to the low teens for a stretch this spring. So when I say that this is the publisher’s best month of 2018, that’s not saying much. Still, things are improving, even if Marvel’s pastContinue reading “Women + NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, August 2018 Solicits: 25 Creators on 21 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, July 2018 Solicits: 22 Creators on 18 Books

Marvel is in an odd spot with female and non-binary creators right now. After a truly abysmal spring with some of the lowest numbers we’ve seen from them in some time, things have improved somewhat.

Marvel’s been very up and down with their female and non-binary creator representation over the past several months, but after the October solicits marked the publisher’s lowest numbers for the year thus far, the November solicits saw a solid gain. While Marvel still remains well off their previous highs, a sizeable jump is a welcomeContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, November 2017 Solicits: 24 Creators on 22 Books”

The numbers aren’t looking great for female and non-binary creators scheduled to work on Marvel’s comics in October. After setting a record high in March of this year, the publisher’s numbers crashed precipitously in April and have been crawling up again bit by bit since then. Until now. The October solicits are a massive stepContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, October 2017 Solicits: 20 Creators on 21 Books”

Women at Marvel Comics Watch – July 2017 Solicits, 24 Women on 22 Books

Marvel has more female creators in their solicits for the second straight month, but by the smallest amount possible.

Especially since the numbers remain far, far below their recent highs; since postingContinue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – July 2017 Solicits, 24 Women on 22 Books”
