We’re Swooning Over These Variant Covers from DC’s Pride Anthology

We celebrate Pride every day of the year.

Poison Ivy Harley Quinn variant cover for DC Pride Anthology

DC Comics is already prepping for Pride Month with a sneak peek at their 2022 queer comics anthology. DC Pride 2022 #1 features stories about LGBTQIA+ characters from across the extended DC universe. The 104 page anthology will include an introduction written by Nicole Maines, who played DC’s first trans superhero Dreamer/Nia Nal on the CW’s Supergirl. The anthology will feature some of our favorite queer characters from our favorite queer and allied writers and artists.
