FiveThirtyEight — Nate Silver’s data-driven stats analysis site that first got famous for predicting election results — actually tried to crunch the numbers on women in comics and it’s an eye-opening read!

Among the more interesting statistics:

  • About 25% of all comic book characters are female
  • About 10% of comics creators at both Marvel and DC are female
  • About 21% of people working in comics this year are non-white

FiveThirtyEight’s takeaway: "Comic books are still made by men, for men and about men," although that seems to be changing ever so slowly.

There’s a pretty great hashtag about how great Wonder Woman is over on Twitter. The conversation hasn’t ended yet (and you should join in!), but we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite tweets so far. Just… don’t look at me while you’re reading them. I might be tearing up over here.

"The text reads “Score! Superman does it again!,” because as we all know, mackin’ on Amazon warriors is one of America’s national past times and we are required to assign the practice a points system just like we do in baseball. Also, Wonder Woman’s a lasso-less “it” now, we guess. Yeah, that’s why her arm’s all weird at the bottom of the shirt; she’s supposed to be lassoing Superman in the picture. But why present a powerful female superhero using one of her trademark symbols as a marker of sexual agency when you can instead present her as a stiff, rigid board to be scored upon?"

i want the kind of funding that scientists in comic books have.  where are you getting this money?  do you publish papers or do you just turn people into giant lizards and call it a day?  do you have to get that shit peer reviewed?  who is paying for your research?  can you give me their email address 

i have googled ‘evil science grants’ and the results were not satisfying
