This summer, DC Comics will put out an 80-page anthology, DC Pride.  It will feature different stories about queer DC superheroes and villains from a who’s-who lineup of queer comics creators.

The issue will open with a foreword from writer Marc Andreyko, editor of the Love is Love tribute anthology, followed by nine different features, and several full-page art pinups from the likes of Kris Anka, Sophie Campbell, Mildred Louis, Travis Moore, Nick Robles, and Kevin Wada — as well as “full-page profiles of DCTV’s LGBTQIA+ characters and the actors who play them,” according to a news release from DC. In something of a multimedia crossover, Nicole Maines, the trans actress who plays the trans superheroine Dreamer on the CW’s Supergirl TV series, will introduce the character to the DC Universe with Supergirl artist Rachel Stott in one of the issue’s nine stories.

Batwoman is flanked by other queer and trans superheroes in the DC Universe on the cover of DC Pride, DC Comics (2021).

Other creator/character pairings in the anthology include James Tynion IV (Wynd, Batman) and Trung Le Nguyen (The Magic Fish) on Batwoman; Mariko Tamaki (Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me, Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass) and Amy Reeder (Amethyst) on a Poison Ivy/Harley Quinn story; Steve Orlando (Midnighter & Apollo, Wonder Woman) returning to Midnighter with Stephen Byrne (Mera: Tidebreaker); Danny Lore (Black Panther) and Lisa Sterle (Submerged) teaming up for a story about the Flash of Earth-11 (the nonbinary character Jess Chambers); Sam Johns (Punchline) and Klaus Janson (The Dark Knight Returns) taking on a story about the recently out-of-the-closet Green Lantern Alan Scott and his very-long-out-of-the-closet son Obsidian; Andrew Wheeler (The Old Guard) and Luciano Vecchio (King In Black: Wiccan And Hulking #1) penning a story about Aqualad; Vita Ayala (Children of the Atom) and Skylar Patridge tackling a Renee Montoya story; and Sina Grace (Iceman), Ro Stein, and Ted Brandt (Crowded) bringing a story about the supervillain Pied Piper to readers.

This may not be the final cover for this 80 page giant and it may feature additional covers.
We’ll update as more info becomes available.
