Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 25 Creators on 25 Books

November has DC back on a regular four-week schedule, but the publisher’s output remains high and we’re seeing the numbers for female and non-binary creators continuing to hold steady. Hopefully this marks a change for DC, who have been unimpressive with representation throughout the year. Let’s take a look at who’s doing what this November:Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 25 Creators on 25 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, October 2019 Solicits: 27 Creators on 27 Books

October has five Wednesdays, which means an extra round of comics hitting shops this month. The solicits confirm what we’ve noticed since DC reduced its output: Fewer books means fewer opportunities for female and non-binary creators, beyond simple proportionality, and the inverse is true. Let’s take a look at who’s doing what at DC inContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, October 2019 Solicits: 27 Creators on 27 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 16 Books

I’ve been on deadline over the summer and got behind with these posts, so expect a blitz of solicits statistics over the next few weeks as I try to catch up. I didn’t miss a whole lot in September, though, as we’ve got another humdrum month from DC. Let’s take a look at who’s doingContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 16 Books”

Marvel’s solid 2019 is set to continue in May as the publisher’s female and non-binary creator representation remains high. It’s a stability we’re not used to seeing at Marvel, but it’s a welcome change. There’s been a strong core of creators with regular gigs thus far this year, as well as a rotating group ofContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, May 2019 Solicits: 33 Creators on 35 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, April 2019: 32 Creators on 31 Books

Thus far, 2019 has been a strong year for female and non-binary creators at Marvel Comics. And the streak goes back further than that, too. Marvel came out of the summer with some solid gains and by November they were pretty near the level they remain at today. That’s six months of decent representation now.Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, April 2019: 32 Creators on 31 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, March 2019 Solicits: 32 Creators on 27 Books

When I write up these posts, I have to go through all the entries below, italicizing the titles and consolidating the different entries for each creator. With DC, it’s a pretty quick job these days. I’m done before I know it. With Marvel, it’s much more involved. There are a lot of female and non-binaryContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, March 2019 Solicits: 32 Creators on 27 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, February 2019 Solicits – 31 Creators on 29 Books

Marvel’s starting the New Year right. After coming in just shy of thirty different female creators for the past few rounds of solicits, they’ve crossed that line with their February offerings. Now the publisher is in the ballpark of their past highs for the first time in a long time. It’s been an interesting roadContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, February 2019 Solicits – 31 Creators on 29 Books”
