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 & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, November 2018 Solicits: 20 Creators on 21 Books

DC is officially in a rut when it comes to female and non-binary creators. After losing mainstays on this list like Bombshells United and the “Young Animal” line, the bulk of those creators are no longer at DC while some creative changes and the debut of a new Vertigo slate have barely erased the losses.Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, November 2018 Solicits: 20 Creators on 21 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, October 2018 Solicits: 21 Creators on 20 Books

After a dismal round of solicits for September, female creator representation is on the rise at DC Comics this October. Not to any impressive levels, though. September’s numbers were terrible and thus does October look much better, but October’s numbers in and of themselves are nothing to crow about. DC remains well below their recentContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, October 2018 Solicits: 21 Creators on 20 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, September 2018 Solicits: 15 Creators on 14 Books

So, this is pretty terrible. DC’s female and non-binary creator numbers have been in the ballpark of the low 20s for a while, stable if noticeably below their past highs. But now, September marks a nosedive for the publisher. All of DC’s recent cancellations of female creator-led books have caught up with them, and theyContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, September 2018 Solicits: 15 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, 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”
