Check out Marvel’s Pride Month Star Wars variant covers

Marvel celebrates Pride Month through July with Star Wars variant covers.

Marvel Comics has revealed new variant covers celebrating Pride Month launching June 15th through July 27th. These covers can be found on the many Star Wars comics published by Marvel.

“For me it’s one of the greatest honors and pleasures to highlight the wonderful diversity of characters in comics,” artist Javier Garrón told StarWars.com. “Maybe we come to stories because it’s sci-fi, or action, or thriller, or whatever, really. But if we stay in them, if those stories stick with us, it is because of the characters.”

Listen to the latest episode of our Star Wars podcast, Talkin' Tauntauns!

Here’s some highlights from the covers:

  • Marvel Comics’ breakout character and star of her own ongoing series, Doctor Aphra
  • Fellow archaeologist and self-proclaimed “arch-nemesis” of Doctor Aphra, Kho Phon Farrus
  • SabéSaché and Yané, former handmaidens of Padmé Amidala who currently play a pivotal role in the STAR WARS: DARTH VADER comic series
  • T’onga, a former bounty hunter currently being pulled back into action in the STAR WARS: BOUNTY HUNTERS comic series and her wife, Losha
  • Jedi Padawans of the High Republic era, Lula Talisola and Zeen Mrala
  • Vi Moradi, the Resistance spy who can often be found by guests visiting Black Spire Outpost at Batuu
  • Resistance Commander Larma D’Acy, known for her appearances in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, and her wife, Resistance Pilot Wrobie Tyce
