Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 25 Creators on 25 Books

November has DC back on a regular four-week schedule, but the publisher’s output remains high and we’re seeing the numbers for female and non-binary creators continuing to hold steady. Hopefully this marks a change for DC, who have been unimpressive with representation throughout the year. Let’s take a look at who’s doing what this November:Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 25 Creators on 25 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 16 Books

I’ve been on deadline over the summer and got behind with these posts, so expect a blitz of solicits statistics over the next few weeks as I try to catch up. I didn’t miss a whole lot in September, though, as we’ve got another humdrum month from DC. Let’s take a look at who’s doingContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 16 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, December 2018 Solicits – 29 Creators on 35 Books

Unlike DC Comics, who are holding back a quarter of their December titles until the first week of January, Marvel looks to be going full tilt in December with a big slate of new comic books. And the publisher is set to end the year on a high note. After beginning 2018 with some embarrassinglyContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, December 2018 Solicits – 29 Creators on 35 Books”

Wonder Woman #51 Review: Capturing the Compassionate Heart of Diana

A new creative team can be a tricky thing, especially with a long running character. Fans have such specific ideas about who a character is and what they stand for, and it must be difficult to try to bring a fresh approach to a book while honouring a character’s lengthy past. All sorts of creators,Continue reading “Wonder Woman #51 Review: Capturing the Compassionate Heart of Diana”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, July 2018 Solicits: 21 Creators on 16 Books

After some low numbers in the June solicits, DC’s underwhelming summer is set to continue into July. The publisher has a lot going on, what with the Brian Michael Bendis era beginning in Action Comics and Superman and new Justice League books debuting. However, few of the goings on seem to involve female or non-binaryContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, July 2018 Solicits: 21 Creators on 16 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, June 2018 Solicits: 20 Creators on 14 Books

We’ve got some good news and some bad news with Marvel’s June solicits. The good news is that for the first time in several months, Marvel’s number of female creators is out of the teens. Just barely so, but hey, the numbers have been so bad that we’ll take what we can get. The badContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, June 2018 Solicits: 20 Creators on 14 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, March 2018 Solicits: 26 Creators on 24 Books

After a couple of months of slight gains, female and non-binary creator representation at DC Comics is set to stay about the same this March. Leveling off after a bit of growth isn’t entirely unexpected, but this current plateau is pretty underwhelming relative to the publisher’s past highs. DC’s been stalled in the low toContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, March 2018 Solicits: 26 Creators on 24 Books”
