Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, September 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 12 Books

Marvel will continue to ease back into publishing this September, increasing their slate slightly while still remaining well below their regular output. It’s an understandable strategy given the state of the world, but one that resulted in terrible numbers for female and non-binary creators in August. The work of male creators was given top priority,Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, September 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 12 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, January 2018 Solicits: 24 Creators on 25 Books

I’ll say this for DC Comics: They’ve become very consistent in their female and non-binary creator representation. The numbers aren’t particularly strong, situated in the mid-20s when the publisher has been well into the 30s in the past. But relative to months previous and to Marvel’s output, DC’s not been especially low or especially highContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, January 2018 Solicits: 24 Creators on 25 Books”

I’m not sure what’s going on at either of the Big Two superhero publishers right now, but both DC and Marvel are well off their recent highs when it comes to the representation of female and non-binary creators. At DC, the solicits for November mark their lowest total in well over a year, and thisContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch – November 2017 Solicits, 23 Creators on 25 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, October 2017 Solicits: 25 Creators on 24 Books

DC’s female and non-binary creator representation has been drifting downward over the last few months, sliding a bit after a relatively strong spring, and with the October solicits, DC’s numbers are set to fall to their lowest level since last March. Things are pretty quiet at DC this fall; there are a few events andContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, October 2017 Solicits: 25 Creators on 24 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, September 2017 Solicits: 27 Creators on 21 Books

After a series of fairly solid rounds of solicits in terms of female and non-binary creator representation across the summer months, DC looks to be starting the fall towards the lower end of that range with their September solicits. A few new books have increased the ranks, while DC’s major autumn event seems to beContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, September 2017 Solicits: 27 Creators on 21 Books”

Women at Marvel Comics – November 2016 Solicits, 31 Women on 19 Books

Marvel’s on quite a run with female creators. While their November solicits are a slight step down from the record highs of the three months previous, there are still a lot of women in the mix; the publisher hasn’t had fewer than 30 female creators since July. There are, however, some slightly disconcerting trends therein.Continue reading “Women at Marvel Comics – November 2016 Solicits, 31 Women on 19 Books”
