Well, that was frustrating to tally up. I’m going to go be grouchy now.



So I just went through and did some stats on the list of September DC #1 titles thus far, and…

Mixed Gender Team Books: 10 [1, 8, 14, 26, 28, 35, 36, 37, 39, 41]

Male-Lead Titles: 30 [3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 27, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 38, 40, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46]

Female-Lead Titles: 6 [2, 20, 21, 22, 23, 34]

Titles Using Bruce Wayne: 6 [1, 8, 16, 17, 18, 19]

Titles Using Any Member of the Bat Family: 13 [1, 8, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 26, 37]

Titles Using Any Member of the S-Shields: 2 [1, 37]

Titles Using Any of the Wonder Women: 3 [1, 2, 37]

Titles Using Canonically-Confirmed LBGT Characters: 2 [20, 40]

Titles Starring Non-Extra-Terrestrial/Inhuman PoCs: 10 [1, 5, 8, 9, 13, 18, 23, 25, 38, 41]

Based on this list I’ve been compiling for my own sanity.

I might be off. Also, I’m not including the S-Shield titles until I see them officially posted somewhere, not just Bleeding Cool. Someone feel free to double-check me. But, just…

Diversity my rear end.

The POC lead ratio is at least little better before. But then consider the POC’s they appear to have erased (mostly women!) (Cass, Kiran, Renee for starters) it’s a tad worse. Everything else is just the same or worse. So yeah, diversity my ass.

Yeah. And it’s worth noting that a couple of the POCs are a bit of a “stretch” in one way or another. I listed the title with Damian, even though he’s not drawn such that you can tell he’s POC, and the Blackhawks title which has one black guy hidden near the back of the team shot. The POC ratio is a bit better as far as starring roles in books, but the women are still very MIA and the overall count is probably still about the same. I think only 3 of the POCs I counted were female, and none of them were on a non-team book.

    Also, only one female creator so far, AFAIK. Don’t know the tally on queer creators or people of color.
