Covers honoring the LGBTQ+ characters of Star Wars, created by gay and transgender artists
Marvel and Lucasfilm marks Pride Month with a powerful series of variant covers honoring the LGBTQ+ characters of Star Wars, reports StarWars.com.
The art graces every title in Marvel’s Star Wars line, and each piece has been created by gay and transgender artists; the covers also feature title treatments with a rainbow burst, and a classic Star Wars logo with a rainbow trail.
“As part of the community of LGBTQ+ creators—a galaxy not so far away—I am honored to be part of this project,” Bounty Hunters #13 cover artist Jacopo Camagni tells StarWars.com. “Sketching Yrica Quell was a journey to expand that endless galaxy, on board with her as rebels against the Empire.”
“Being invited to portray these two amazing characters was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I couldn’t let slip away,” says The High Republic #6 cover artist Javier Garrón. “It’s a chance to highlight what I love about them and Star Wars: it’s an endless universe, immensely diverse and inclusive.”
