Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, August 2019 Solicits: 37 Creators on 28 Books

August is a big month for Marvel, with a “landmark” thousandth issue from a massive team of creators set to hit comic shops. The numbering is completely arbitrary, and it’s not even a real series. Marvel saw the success DC had with its legitimate Action Comics #1000 and Detective Comics #1000 and, since there areContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, August 2019 Solicits: 37 Creators on 28 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, November 2017 Solicits: 24 Creators on 22 Books

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”

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. They gained one with the last round, and are up one more with the July solicits, in what can only be called progress-ish. 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”

Women at Marvel Comics Watch – January 2017 Solicits, 33 Women on 23 Books

Marvel’s female creator representation is set to take a small step back to begin the New Year, but after a record setting December a bit of a drop was to be expected. The fall is slight, and well within the ballpark of Marvel’s recent highs through the fall. While another record breaking month would haveContinue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – January 2017 Solicits, 33 Women on 23 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”
