Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 22 Creators on 23 Books

Oh, dear. Marvel’s had a really strong 2019, with consistent, high representation for female and non-binary creators. It’s been month after month of LONG lists of amazing writers and artists. Until the fall, that is. The past two months have been relatively subpar, and now the November solicits mark Marvel’s lowest totals for the yearContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, November 2019 Solicits: 22 Creators on 23 Books”

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, August 2019 Solicits: 37 Creators on 28 Books

August is a big month for Marvel, with a “landmark” thousandth issue from a massive team of creators set to hit comic shops. The numbering is completely arbitrary, and it’s not even a real series. Marvel saw the success DC had with its legitimate Action Comics #1000 and Detective Comics #1000 and, since there areContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, August 2019 Solicits: 37 Creators on 28 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”

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. It’s hard to compare the two publishers directly these days, but what’s undoubtedly true is that while DC’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, June 2019 Solicits: 35 Creators on 36 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”
