Marvel reveals every Star Wars Pride Month variant cover

Marvel celebrates Pride Month this June with new Star Wars variant covers starring your favorite LGBTQ+ characters!

Press Release

Ahead of Pride Month in June, Marvel Comics has revealed every Pride Month variant cover for their Star Wars line of comics. Starting June 2nd, fans can pick up these variant covers to celebrate along with a Star Wars Pride logo. All of the covers are created by an all-star lineup of LGBTQ+ creators depicting LGBTQ+ characters from the Star Wars Galaxy.

Yesterday, Marvel revealed a Black Cat cover which is part of their Phil Jimenez line of Pride Month variant covers.

“Being invited to portray these two amazing characters was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I couldn’t let slip away,” Javier Garrón told StarWars.com about drawing Jedi twins Terec and Ceret for his Star Wars: The High Republic #6 cover. “It’s a chance to highlight what I love about them and Star Wars: it’s an endless universe, immensely diverse and inclusive. With each story its limits are shattered and it becomes richer, more interesting, and more fun to explore. So I wanted to draw Terec and Ceret as the powerful characters they are, filled with determination and hope. Because that’s what a great Jedi means to me. And representation matters.”

Check out the covers below.
