Marvel unveils Phil Jimenez Pride Month ‘Black Cat’ art

Black Cat stars in a newly revealed PRIDE MONTH VARIANT COVER coming in June.

Ahead of its release on June 2nd, Marvel has shared Phil Jimenez’s Black Cat #7 variant cover. Marvel already showed off a few last month as there will be a series of Jimenez covers released throughout the month.

“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 statement 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.”
