Women at DC Comics Watch – May 2016 Solicits, 23 Women on 20 Books

In the last month before DC Comics relaunches their superhero line yet again, the publisher’s female creator representation is set to be on the low end of their current average range. Thus far in 2016, DC has had at least 20 different women writing and drawing their comics each month, and this May is noContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – May 2016 Solicits, 23 Women on 20 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – April 2016 Solicits, 25 Women On 22 Books

DC’s April 2016 solicits mark the seventh straight month in which DC has had more than 20 different women working on their books, which is a pretty solid run. There’s been some fluctuation along the way, but things haven’t dipped into the teens. Nor have the numbers soared particularly high; we’re not seeing much inContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – April 2016 Solicits, 25 Women On 22 Books”

Women at DC Comics Watch – March 2016 Solicits, 28 Women on 22 Books

I thought it would be fun to start off a new year of posts with some good news, so here’s what I’ve got: DC is poised to have a pretty decent March in terms of female creators, and their 2016 solicits thus far have been relatively strong.   The numbers aren’t as high as they wereContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – March 2016 Solicits, 28 Women on 22 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – February 2016 Solicits, 21 Women On 19 Books

The solicits for January promise a big month for female creators at DC, but February isn’t looking nearly as good. Like, down a third. Last spring, DC was topping 30 different female creators a month fairly regularly, and now it’s a rarity. I’m not sure what changed within DC, but their numbers just aren’t whatContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – February 2016 Solicits, 21 Women On 19 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – January 2016 Solicits, 31 Women On 20 Books

It took a long time, but DC is finally back in the ballpark of the highs they hit early in 2015 with female creators. Things took a big dip after “Convergence”, with the #DCYou initiative bringing a substantial drop in female creators that was slow to recover. Things are looking up in the New Year,Continue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – January 2016 Solicits, 31 Women On 20 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – December 2015 Solicits: 20 Female Creators On 18 Books

For the past couple of months, DC’s solicits have stepped up their female creator representation after a disappointing start to their #DCYou mini-relaunch in June. The numbers were still a ways off from their highs earlier in the year, but they were growing. Unfortunately, December looks to be a step back for women at DCContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – December 2015 Solicits: 20 Female Creators On 18 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – November 2015 Solicits: 24 Female Creators On 23 Books

After four months in which DC’s new, supposedly diverse mini-relaunch resulted in their lowest totals for solicited female creators in some time, October was a step up into the ballpark of DC’s past highs. It wasn’t their best month of the year, but it was considerably better. November looks to be a slight step downContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – November 2015 Solicits: 24 Female Creators On 23 Books”
