Women + NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, August 2018 Solicits: 25 Creators on 19 Books

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, May 2018 Solicits: 23 Creators on 20 Books

May looks to be another pedestrian month for female and non-binary creator representation at DC Comics. Despite a lot of big changes and new initiatives, the numbers have been sitting in the mid-20s for several months now. While it’s not the worst we’ve seen from the publisher, they’ve shown themselves to be capable of farContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, May 2018 Solicits: 23 Creators on 20 Books”
