Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, March 2020 Solicits, 28 Creators on 27 Books

February was a bit of a bounce back month for Marvel after a very subpar January, and the publisher’s female and non-binary representation looks to be carrying on at a similar level in March. Marvel remains well below their 2019 highs, but it’s good to see some stability. There’s a solid core of female andContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, March 2020 Solicits, 28 Creators on 27 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, March 2020 Solicits, 26 Creators on 19 Books

DC’s been on a bit of a roll with female and non-binary creator representation lately, posting over 30 different creators each month since November. They’re not going to hit that mark in March, where we’re looking at some big dips in both creators and books. To be fair, March marks the fewest books overall we’veContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, March 2020 Solicits, 26 Creators on 19 Books”

The New Year started off poorly for Marvel, with sizeable losses in their overall total of female and non-binary creators, but the publisher is set to bounce back in February with some higher numbers.

It’s February, and that means no more festive shenanigans! Thank goodness. Christmas being on a Wednesday really complicated the last couple rounds of solicits. We’ve got a normal month here, and a strong showing from DC. I was a little worried about widespread representation after January was dominated by female and non-binary creators working onContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, February 2020 Solicits, 33 Creators on 29 Books”

Marvel’s numbers for female and non-binary creators bounced back in December after a sub-par autumn, but the publisher is set to start the New Year by erasing all of those gains. While there’s decent representation across the line, the total number of different creators is the lowest we’ve seen from Marvel in some time. It’sContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, January 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 28 Books”

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”
