Marvel has released a first look at a variant cover for the upcoming Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1 by legendary artist Olivier Coipel. The book is Marvel’s first-ever queer-centered special, and will celebrate everything from 1992’s Alpha Fight #106 that confirmed Northstar’s sexuality all the way to present-day queer Marvel books like America Chavez: Born in the USA.
Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1 will, naturally, be released during Pride Month on June 23. Take a look at the cover, as well as Marvel’s full press release, below:
