Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, August 2020 Solicits, 9 Creators on 10 Books

DC’s not exactly jumping straight into the pool this August with their limited slate of books, but they’re certainly wading in. Marvel, on the other hand, is just dipping a toe.

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, June 2020 Solicits, 34 Creators on 29 Books

Continuing this very productive first week of self isolation, this is the sixth of these posts I’ve written so far. It’ll be in the future when you read it, though, at least two weeks away. What will I be counting then? How many Cheerios are in a box, perhaps? Time will tell. As always, comicContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, June 2020 Solicits, 34 Creators on 29 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, March 2020 Solicits, 28 Creators on 27 Books

February was a bit of a bounce back month for Marvel after a very subpar January, and the publisher’s female and non-binary representation looks to be carrying on at a similar level in March.

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 22 Creators on 23 Books

Oh, dear. Marvel’s had a really strong 2019, with consistent, high representation for female and non-binary creators. It’s been month after month of LONG lists of amazing writers and artists.
