Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, June 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 19 Books

The numbers keep coming, both fast and furiously, because I am lousy with spare time right now! I’m actually writing this two weeks before it’s even going to post. Given how things are going, I can’t possibly imagine how the world will be when this goes up. I hope you’re all still doing well! Also,Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, June 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 19 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 & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, April 2018 Solicits: 23 Creators on 23 Books

April looks to be another subpar month for female and non-binary creator representation at DC Comics. Not only has the publisher posted their lowest numbers of the year thus far, the total also leaves them well below their past highs. For several months now, DC’s been operating at about 2/3 of the level they’ve shownContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, April 2018 Solicits: 23 Creators on 23 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – May 2015 Solicits: 26 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Books

As the second and final month of “Convergence” wraps up, DC Comics’ female representation ticks down somewhat from the numbers in the April solicits to their second lowest total of the year thus far. Nonetheless, it’s still far better than where they were at any point in 2014, or several years previous. Let’s take aContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – May 2015 Solicits: 26 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – April 2015 Solicits: 32 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Comics

DC’s 2015 solicits have been quite good for female creators thus far, but I’ve been worried about April. With the regular New 52 books replaced by “Convergence” event titles, a lot of regular creators would be gone and DC generally doesn’t have the best track record for bringing in female characters on event books. ButContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – April 2015 Solicits: 32 Different Female Creators On 25 Different Comics”

Women At Marvel Comics – November 2013 Solicits

It was another very disappointing month for female creators in the Marvel solicits, made even worse by the fact that there was only one returning female creator from last month.  While the female character situation isn’t too bad, the lack of women making comics in these solicits is reaching some dire lows.  Let’s go throughContinue reading “Women At Marvel Comics – November 2013 Solicits”

Women At Marvel Comics Watch – December 2012 Solicits

Ever since DC Comics promised to include more female creators and characters in their comics, we’ve been holding them to it and checking the solicits every month to see how they’re doing.  Now, with Marvel in the midst of their Marvel Now! not-a-relaunch, I thought it would be fun to start a monthly check-in withContinue reading “Women At Marvel Comics Watch – December 2012 Solicits”
