Marvel is celebrating Pride Month this June with new Star Wars variant covers that will featuer LGBTQ+ characters.
The press release follows:
Media Release — Earlier today, StarWars.com revealed all six STAR WARS PRIDE VARIANT COVERS coming to your local comic shop this June! Created by an all-star lineup of LGBTQ+ comic talent, this collection of incredible artwork will grace the covers of Marvel’s monthly Star Wars series throughout Pride Month. Featuring stunning depictions of popular LGBTQ+ characters from throughout the Star Wars galaxy, these eye-catching covers will also come complete with special rainbow-powered versions of each series’ title along with the official Star Wars Pride logo.
“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.”
Fans can see Doctor Aphra, Sana Starros, Rae Sloan, Yrica Quell, Terec and Ceret, and Lando Calrissian all brought to life in spectacular artwork by Jan Bazaldua, Javier Garrón, Babs Tarr, Jacopo Camagni, JJ Kirby, and Stephen Byrne! Check them out below and collect all six when they hit stands in June! For more information, visit Marvel.com.
