Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, September 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 12 Books

Marvel will continue to ease back into publishing this September, increasing their slate slightly while still remaining well below their regular output. It’s an understandable strategy given the state of the world, but one that resulted in terrible numbers for female and non-binary creators in August. The work of male creators was given top priority,Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, September 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 12 Books”

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 DC Comics, February 2020 Solicits, 33 Creators on 29 Books

It’s February, and that means no more festive shenanigans! Thank goodness. Christmas being on a Wednesday really complicated the last couple rounds of solicits. We’ve got a normal month here, and a strong showing from DC. I was a little worried about widespread representation after January was dominated by female and non-binary creators working onContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, February 2020 Solicits, 33 Creators on 29 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 31 Creators on 24 Books

DC likes to get tricky with its solicits in December, and this year is no exception. Christmas is a Wednesday so comic shops won’t be open, and DC’s not putting out any books that week. Also, the next Wednesday is New Year’s Day, and while shops likely won’t be open then either, DC seems toContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 31 Creators on 24 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, November 2018 Solicits: 29 Creators on 28 Books

When the November solicits were released last month, it looked like Marvel was taking a big step in terms of representation and were moving toward finishing the year on a high note. Then things changed. The numbers didn’t crater by any means, but a big jump got noticeably smaller. It’s an odd set of circumstances,Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, November 2018 Solicits: 29 Creators on 28 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, June 2018 Solicits: 19 Creators on 17 Books

June is a huge month for DC, and the bulk of it is centered around their two superstar writers. Scott Snyder is relaunching Justice League, with Jim Cheung and Jorge Jimenez drawing the books, while Brian Michael Bendis is kickstarting his new Superman run with a Man of Steel mini-series featuring art from Ivan Reis,Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, June 2018 Solicits: 19 Creators on 17 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”
