Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, July 2019 Solicits: 18 Creators on 20 Books

July is a month with five Wednesdays, which usually means more comics from DC. Typically, we get annuals and other one-shot specials in that last week, since most of their ongoing books are released on a regular schedule (Wonder Woman is out on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month, for example), and there’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, July 2019 Solicits: 18 Creators on 20 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, June 2019 Solicits: 18 Creators on 17 Books

DC is really committed to putting out fewer books now. When they announced that they were cutting back, I was curious to see how long it would last, but they’re sticking with it. We saw a slight uptick in the May solicits, on account of it being a month with five Wednesdays, and now withContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, June 2019 Solicits: 18 Creators on 17 Books”

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 & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, April 2019: 17 Creators on 17 Books

April looks to be a quiet month all around for DC Comics. May is set to bring the dawn of yet another new event series, but April is just the same old, with no new titles or big creative shifts in the mix. And the same old means another subpar month for female and non-binaryContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, April 2019: 17 Creators on 17 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, March 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 17 Books

So far, 2019 has not been a good year for female and non-binary creator representation at DC Comics. The numbers have been disappointingly low. Now, some of this is likely due to a contraction of DC’s line as a whole. They’re just not putting out as many books as they used to. But still, it’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, March 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 17 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, February 2019 Solicits – 18 Creators on 15 Books

Well then. DC’s January solicits didn’t give us a lot of hope that the publisher was going to start the New Year off strong in terms of female and non-binary creator representation, and the February solicits haven’t helped matters at all. We’re back into the teens, which is just ridiculous. Embarrassing, really. In the yearContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, February 2019 Solicits – 18 Creators on 15 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, January 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 14 Books

So remember how we adjusted the numbers for DC’s December solicits? The last Wednesday in December is Boxing Day, and DC’s not shipping any books that week. Instead, because January is a five-Wednesday month, they moved all those books to the first Wednesday in January. Thus, when we looked at the December solicits, we addedContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, January 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 14 Books”
