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.

DC’s female and non-binary creator representation has been drifting downward over the last few months, sliding a bit after a relatively strong spring, and with the October solicits, DC’s numbers are set to fall to their lowest level since last March. Things are pretty quiet at DC this fall; there are a few events andContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, October 2017 Solicits: 25 Creators on 24 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, September 2017 Solicits: 27 Creators on 21 Books

After a series of fairly solid rounds of solicits in terms of female and non-binary creator representation across the summer months, DC looks to be starting the fall towards the lower end of that range with their September solicits. A few new books have increased the ranks, while DC’s major autumn event seems to beContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, September 2017 Solicits: 27 Creators on 21 Books”

Women at DC Comics Watch – August 2017 Solicits, 29 Women on 22 Books

Despite a lack of female creators in several new series, mini-series and one-shots set to premiere in August, representation for women at DC Comics remained relatively strong across their wider range of books. Growth throughout the spring has led to a solid plateau at the publisher, though some changes are on the way that mayContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – August 2017 Solicits, 29 Women on 22 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”
