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.

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”

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

August looks like it’s going to be a relatively decent month for female creators at DC Comics, with the publisher posting its highest numbers since March. It’s a welcome change after an underwhelming spring and start to the summer. However, August is also a month of transition, with some big beginnings, endings, and returns, soContinue reading “Women + NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, August 2018 Solicits: 25 Creators on 19 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, July 2018 Solicits: 21 Creators on 16 Books

After some low numbers in the June solicits, DC’s underwhelming summer is set to continue into July.

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”

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”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, March 2018 Solicits: 26 Creators on 24 Books

After a couple of months of slight gains, female and non-binary creator representation at DC Comics is set to stay about the same this March. Leveling off after a bit of growth isn’t entirely unexpected, but this current plateau is pretty underwhelming relative to the publisher’s past highs. DC’s been stalled in the low toContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, March 2018 Solicits: 26 Creators on 24 Books”
