Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, January 2020 Solicits, 31 Creators on 21 Books

With the December solicits, DC listed a bunch of their titles for the first week of January, and I decided to keep those books out of the official tally. Most of the comics were DC’s usual first week of the month fare, just scheduled early, so they fit better with the January solicits. So withContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, January 2020 Solicits, 31 Creators on 21 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 31 Creators on 24 Books

DC likes to get tricky with its solicits in December, and this year is no exception. Christmas is a Wednesday so comic shops won’t be open, and DC’s not putting out any books that week. Also, the next Wednesday is New Year’s Day, and while shops likely won’t be open then either, DC seems toContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, December 2019 Solicits: 31 Creators on 24 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, October 2019 Solicits: 27 Creators on 27 Books

October has five Wednesdays, which means an extra round of comics hitting shops this month. The solicits confirm what we’ve noticed since DC reduced its output: Fewer books means fewer opportunities for female and non-binary creators, beyond simple proportionality, and the inverse is true. Let’s take a look at who’s doing what at DC inContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, October 2019 Solicits: 27 Creators on 27 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 16 Books

I’ve been on deadline over the summer and got behind with these posts, so expect a blitz of solicits statistics over the next few weeks as I try to catch up. I didn’t miss a whole lot in September, though, as we’ve got another humdrum month from DC. Let’s take a look at who’s doingContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, September 2019 Solicits: 20 Creators on 16 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, August 2019 Solicits: 15 Creators on 16 Books

DC’s numbers for female and non-binary creators haven’t been high for a while, in part because they’ve trimmed back their line and fewer books means fewer creators across the board. But still, even in this new reality, DC’s representation for August is a step down from what we’ve been seeing lately. While the publisher’s ZoomContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, August 2019 Solicits: 15 Creators on 16 Books”

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”

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. We saw a slight uptick in the May solicits, on account of it being a month with five Wednesdays, and now withContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics Watch, June 2019 Solicits: 18 Creators on 17 Books”
