Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, July 2019 Solicits: 18 Creators on 20 Books

July is a month with five Wednesdays, which usually means more comics from DC. Typically, we get annuals and other one-shot specials in that last week, since most of their ongoing books are released on a regular schedule (Wonder Woman is out on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month, for example), and there’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, July 2019 Solicits: 18 Creators on 20 Books”

Wonder Woman #71 Review: A Colossal Discovery

We’ve had a bit of a talky go of it lately with Wonder Woman. Atlantiades is not the sort of villain you stop with fisticuffs, or even a villain at all, really. More an interesting conundrum, a deity in a strange place doing what only comes natural to them, seeking worship. And toying with mortals,Continue reading “Wonder Woman #71 Review: A Colossal Discovery”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, June 2019 Solicits: 35 Creators on 36 Books

On the one hand, Marvel will have nearly twice as many female and non-binary creators as DC this June. On the other hand, Marvel is also putting out nearly twice as many books as DC this June.

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, June 2019 Solicits: 18 Creators on 17 Books

DC is really committed to putting out fewer books now. When they announced that they were cutting back, I was curious to see how long it would last, but they’re sticking with it.

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, May 2019 Solicits: 33 Creators on 35 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 DC Comics Watch, May 2019 Solicits: 21 Creators on 18 Books

DC trimming back their comic line has resulted in some shifting of the numbers for female and non-binary creators over the past few months. Representation has declined more or less in line with the drop in the number of books, and we see this trend holding with the May numbers, just in the other direction.Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, May 2019 Solicits: 21 Creators on 18 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”
