Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, May 2019 Solicits: 21 Creators on 18 Books

DC trimming back their comic line has resulted in some shifting of the numbers for female and non-binary creators over the past few months. Representation has declined more or less in line with the drop in the number of books, and we see this trend holding with the May numbers, just in the other direction.Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, May 2019 Solicits: 21 Creators on 18 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 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 – 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 – 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 – October 2015 Solicits: 27 Different Female Creators On 22 Different Books

DC’s track record with female creators since their #DCYou mini-relaunch has been odd. On the one hand, they’ve topped Marvel every month thus far, but on the other hand they’ve been far below their pre-#DCYou numbers for female creators for four straight months, and by a considerable margin. It’s not been an impressive run; goingContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – October 2015 Solicits: 27 Different Female Creators On 22 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – February 2015 Solicits: 30 Female Creators On 35 Different Books

Last month, after DC broke their record for female creators in their solicits yet again, I was wondering when they might hit the mark of 30 different women. Turns out, it was this month, with DC breaking their record once more in their February solicits. I’ve been expecting a drop off after so many monthsContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – February 2015 Solicits: 30 Female Creators On 35 Different Books”
