Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 28 Creators on 26 Books

Unlike their Distinguished Competition, Marvel doesn’t fret December this far out. I’m sure there will be some sort of scheduling situation when the month actually comes. Releasing comics on Christmas Day seems like a bad idea. But nothing looks amiss in this round of solicits. Marvel doesn’t provide specific release dates with theirs, so it’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 28 Creators on 26 Books”

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 at Marvel Comics Watch – September 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 23 Books

When Marvel posted 34 different female creators in their August 2016 solicits, I thought that the number would be hard to match when next month’s batch dropped. Turns out, I was right, but in the best way; Marvel didn’t quite hit 34 different female creators again, but they did hit 33 and that’s pretty impressive.Continue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – September 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 23 Books”

Women At Marvel Comics Watch – September 2015 Solicits: 13 Different Female Creators On 11 Different Comics

I’m not entirely sure why, but a lot of books are missing in Marvel’s September solicits. I’m guessing it’s partly due to Secret Wars running a little bit late and pushing tie-ins back, and partly due to regular series wrapping up in advance of Marvel’s big upcoming revamp. Whatever the case, the lack of severalContinue reading “Women At Marvel Comics Watch – September 2015 Solicits: 13 Different Female Creators On 11 Different Comics”

Women At Marvel Comics Watch – May 2015 Solicits: 13 Different Female Creators On 17 Different Comics

Two months after their “Women of Marvel” variant cover line catapulted them to 20 different female creators for the first time in ages, Marvel remains firmly in the low teens yet again. Several other comics publishers are making big strides for female representation, but Marvel is lagging behind. While their May solicits show some growthContinue reading “Women At Marvel Comics Watch – May 2015 Solicits: 13 Different Female Creators On 17 Different Comics”

Women At Marvel Comics Watch – April 2015 Solicits: 11 Different Female Creators On 16 Different Comics

Not at all surprisingly, after their “Women of Marvel” variant cover event boosted their number of female creators in the March solicits, things fall back down to Earth in April. Marvel’s women-centric events all tend to go this way: They make a big deal about having female creators for a month, and then the nextContinue reading “Women At Marvel Comics Watch – April 2015 Solicits: 11 Different Female Creators On 16 Different Comics”

Women At Marvel Comics Watch – March 2015 Solicits: 20 Different Female Creators On 26 Different Books

March looks like it’s going to be a great month for women at Marvel, largely due to their special “Women of Marvel” variant cover line-up. Their numbers are much higher overall with the addition of these many great artists, though Marvel’s numbers for women INSIDE the books remain fairly low. It’s nice to see femaleContinue reading “Women At Marvel Comics Watch – March 2015 Solicits: 20 Different Female Creators On 26 Different Books”
