Pride month may still be almost three months away, but DC Comics is already sharing ways for fans to celebrate Pride at their local comics shop, bookstore, and library. This year, DC is extending the celebration beyond June with more stories, more characters, and more pride than ever.
To start, DC will publish its annual Pride anthology comic book. DC Pride 2022 will be published on May 31 and includes 104 pages of content. The comic features an introduction by activist, actress, and real-life superhero Nicole Maines — including a teaser for her upcoming DC project! — as well as a main cover by Phil Jimenez and Arif Prianto, an open-to-order wraparound variant cover by Joshua “Sway” Swaby, and a 1:25-scale variant cover by Jen Bartel.
The DC Pride 2022 creative teams are developing stories for a variety of characters, including Alysia Yeoh and Batgirl by Jadzia Axelrod and Lynne Yoshii; Aquaman (Jackson Hyde) by Alyssa Wong and W. Scott Forbes; Green Lantern (Jo Mullein) by Tini Howard and Evan Cagle; Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy by Dani Fernandez and Zoe Thorogood; The Ray by Greg Lockard and Giulio Macaione; Superman (Jon Kent) by Devin Grayson and Nick Robles; Tim Drake by Travis G. Moore; and more.
In addition to DC Pride 2022, several comics will launch during Pride Month and continue through the year, including Poison Ivy, Nubia: Queen of the Amazons, DC Pride: Tim Drake Special, and Multiversity: Teen Justice.
Fans can celebrate DC Pride and read comics featuring DC’s LGBTQIA+ characters throughout the year by visiting the DC Universe Pride hub page on DC Universe Infinite, DC’s digital comic book service.
