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 at DC Comics Watch – July 2017 Solicits, 27 Women on 23 Books

July looks to be a bit of a drop for female creator representation at DC, though not a particularly steep one. The June solicits had their strongest numbers of 2017 thus far, so a decline is hardly unexpected. Growth is rarely a steady thing in the comic book world. Plus DC’s totals for July areContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – July 2017 Solicits, 27 Women on 23 Books”

Women at DC Comics Watch – June 2017 Solicits, 31 Women on 22 Books

I’ve gotten behind on my creator counting this month! The July solicits are already up, and I’ve yet to post about the June ones. Blame a rash of traveling and general forgetfulness. But nonetheless, here we are now, checking in on female creator representation at DC Comics according to their June 2017 solicits. And itContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – June 2017 Solicits, 31 Women on 22 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – May 2015 Solicits: 26 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Books

As the second and final month of “Convergence” wraps up, DC Comics’ female representation ticks down somewhat from the numbers in the April solicits to their second lowest total of the year thus far. Nonetheless, it’s still far better than where they were at any point in 2014, or several years previous. Let’s take aContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – May 2015 Solicits: 26 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – April 2015 Solicits: 32 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Comics

DC’s 2015 solicits have been quite good for female creators thus far, but I’ve been worried about April. With the regular New 52 books replaced by “Convergence” event titles, a lot of regular creators would be gone and DC generally doesn’t have the best track record for bringing in female characters on event books. ButContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – April 2015 Solicits: 32 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Comics”

Women At DC Comics Watch – January 2015 Solicits

It’s a brand new year, solicitswise, and DC is kicking it off right with a huge amount of female creators, the most we’ve seen from either DC or Marvel since this project began. The numbers are massive, so much so that I’m instituting a new system. When there were only 2 or 3 women writingContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – January 2015 Solicits”

Women At DC Comics Watch – December 2014 Solicits

These articles used to be so easy to write. DC would have 4 or 5 female creators in their solicits, I’d list them all, say something snarky, and be done with it. But now, DC has a lot more women making their comics. It’s still a small minority, but it’s growing all the time andContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – December 2014 Solicits”
