Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, August 2020 Solicits, 17 Creators on 13 Books

And we’re back! The pandemic shut down comics for a while, and things are still a little wonky with DC moving on from Diamond, but the good news is that new comics books are coming out again. We last had solicits for the June books, but that went entirely out the window. Now, with thingsContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, August 2020 Solicits, 17 Creators on 13 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, May 2020 Solicits, 20 Creators on 14 Books

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, February 2020 Solicits, 28 Creators on 25 Books

The New Year started off poorly for Marvel, with sizeable losses in their overall total of female and non-binary creators, but the publisher is set to bounce back in February with some higher numbers. After such a steady 2019, it’s a tad worrisome that Marvel is returning to its old back and forth ways thusContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, February 2020 Solicits, 28 Creators on 25 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, January 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 28 Books

Marvel’s numbers for female and non-binary creators bounced back in December after a sub-par autumn, but the publisher is set to start the New Year by erasing all of those gains. While there’s decent representation across the line, the total number of different creators is the lowest we’ve seen from Marvel in some time. It’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, January 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 28 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, January 2020 Solicits, 31 Creators on 21 Books

With the December solicits, DC listed a bunch of their titles for the first week of January, and I decided to keep those books out of the official tally. Most of the comics were DC’s usual first week of the month fare, just scheduled early, so they fit better with the January solicits. So withContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, January 2020 Solicits, 31 Creators on 21 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 28 Creators on 26 Books

Unlike their Distinguished Competition, Marvel doesn’t fret December this far out. I’m sure there will be some sort of scheduling situation when the month actually comes. Releasing comics on Christmas Day seems like a bad idea. But nothing looks amiss in this round of solicits. Marvel doesn’t provide specific release dates with theirs, so it’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 28 Creators on 26 Books”
