Marvel Comics reveals Pride Month Phil Jimenez variant covers

America Chavez, Iceman, Northstar and Daken star in the first set of PRIDE MONTH VARIANT COVERS coming in June.

Press Release

Throughout the month of June, Marvel Comics will feature special Pride Month variant covers spotlighting Marvel’s LGBTQ+ characters. These covers are all done by comics great Phil Jimenez. This is in addition to the special Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1 anthology comic out on June 23rd.

“I’m always blown away at how different things are now in comics when it comes to LGBTQ+ representation than when I started, and Marvel’s dedication to that inclusion,” Jimenez said in a press release sent to AIPT. “As an (ahem!) older gay creator, I’m always thrilled by the opportunity to draw iconic LGBTQ+ characters from Marvel’s past and present, and grateful to contribute to Marvel’s future: one that truly represents the world — and the wonderful diversity of humanity — right outside your window.”
