Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, October 2019 Solicits: 30 Creators on 29 Books

Marvel looks to hold steady across the board with their October solicits. There aren’t any huge changes from their September numbers, which is unfortunate given that the September numbers were a definite step down from what’s been a stellar year of female and non-binary creator representation at the publisher. Let’s take a look at who’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, October 2019 Solicits: 30 Creators on 29 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 30 Creators on 27 Books

As we continue our catching up, September marks a slight drop for female and non-binary creators at Marvel. The publisher has maintained a relatively impressive level of representation for some time, and this may well be a momentary blip. That being said, consistency in representation is out of character for Marvel, so we’ll have toContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 30 Creators on 27 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, July 2019 Solicits: 38 Creators on 30 Books

Marvel’s July 2019 solicits may mark the highest number of female and non-binary creators we’ve seen from either Big Two publisher in the several years I’ve been doing these pieces. I say “may” in part because I’ve done quite a lot of them and skimming back through years and years of posts to check seemsContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, July 2019 Solicits: 38 Creators on 30 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, January 2019 Solicits: 29 Creators on 29 Books

Marvel closed out 2018 with solid gains in terms of female and non-binary creator representation, bouncing back well after some terribly low numbers last winter to plateau at a relatively decent level. The numbers aren’t great by any means, but they’re now consistently not bad, and that’s what counts for progress when it comes toContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, January 2019 Solicits: 29 Creators on 29 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, November 2018 Solicits: 29 Creators on 28 Books

When the November solicits were released last month, it looked like Marvel was taking a big step in terms of representation and were moving toward finishing the year on a high note. Then things changed. The numbers didn’t crater by any means, but a big jump got noticeably smaller. It’s an odd set of circumstances,Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, November 2018 Solicits: 29 Creators on 28 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, October 2018 Solicits: 25 Creators on 23 Books

Marvel has A LOT going on in October. A ton of new series and minis, an array of one-shots, a big “Spider-geddon” event, plus all of their usual fare. Their output is in the ballpark of 85 new comic books for the month, about 10 more than they usually release. The increase in production hasn’tContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, October 2018 Solicits: 25 Creators on 23 Books”
