Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, December 2018 Solicits – 24 Creators on 23 Books, Sort Of

Okay, this one is going to be a little bit weird. The fourth Wednesday in December is Boxing Day, and DC has decided not to ship any comics at all that week. Since January is a five-week month, they’re bumping all of their usual fourth week books from December into the first week of January.Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, December 2018 Solicits – 24 Creators on 23 Books, Sort Of”

Women at DC Comics Watch – January 2017 Solicits, 26 Women on 24 Books

After a strong run to close the year, female representation at DC Comics looks to be taking a bit of a step back to start 2017. The January solicits have DC’s lowest number of female creators since last August, a disappointing start to the year after the publisher posted some of its best numbers everContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – January 2017 Solicits, 26 Women on 24 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – April 2016 Solicits, 25 Women On 22 Books

DC’s April 2016 solicits mark the seventh straight month in which DC has had more than 20 different women working on their books, which is a pretty solid run. There’s been some fluctuation along the way, but things haven’t dipped into the teens. Nor have the numbers soared particularly high; we’re not seeing much inContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – April 2016 Solicits, 25 Women On 22 Books”

Women at DC Comics Watch – March 2016 Solicits, 28 Women on 22 Books

I thought it would be fun to start off a new year of posts with some good news, so here’s what I’ve got: DC is poised to have a pretty decent March in terms of female creators, and their 2016 solicits thus far have been relatively strong.   The numbers aren’t as high as they wereContinue reading “Women at DC Comics Watch – March 2016 Solicits, 28 Women on 22 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – January 2016 Solicits, 31 Women On 20 Books

It took a long time, but DC is finally back in the ballpark of the highs they hit early in 2015 with female creators. Things took a big dip after “Convergence”, with the #DCYou initiative bringing a substantial drop in female creators that was slow to recover. Things are looking up in the New Year,Continue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – January 2016 Solicits, 31 Women On 20 Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – July 2015 Solicits: DC’s Lowest Month of the Year, 15 Different Female Creators on 16 Different Books

When June’s numbers for female creators came in lower than what we’d been seeing from DC previously in the year, I was surprised but hoped it was just an off month. I had high hopes for DC’s mini-relaunch, especially after their impressive upswing of female creators thus far in 2015. But now, in the secondContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – July 2015 Solicits: DC’s Lowest Month of the Year, 15 Different Female Creators on 16 Different Books”

Women At DC Comics Watch – June 2015 Solicits: A Disappointing Month For DC’s Mini-Relaunch, 19 Different Female Creators on 21 Different Books

I was very excited for the June solicits to come out, because DC has been having a great 2015 thus far. They’ve bested their previous highs for female creators on multiple occasions, and even maintained high numbers through their “Convergence” event. Events have rarely seen DC’s strongest effort when it comes to female creators, soContinue reading “Women At DC Comics Watch – June 2015 Solicits: A Disappointing Month For DC’s Mini-Relaunch, 19 Different Female Creators on 21 Different Books”
