Continuing this very productive first week of self isolation, this is the sixth of these posts I’ve written so far. It’ll be in the future when you read it, though, at least two weeks away. What will I be counting then? How many Cheerios are in a box, perhaps? Time will tell. As always, comicContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, June 2020 Solicits, 34 Creators on 29 Books”

The increase in production hasn’tContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, October 2018 Solicits: 25 Creators on 23 Books”

After what has been a rough year thus far for female and non-binary creator representation at Marvel, the publisher seems to have settled into a bit of a groove now. Unconventionally, too. Maybe about half of the gigs listed below are steady, ongoing jobs. The rest are variant covers, one-shots, or mini-series, positions that don’tContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, September 2018 Solicits: 26 Creators on 21 Books”
