    But Why Tho? - Jason Flatt Jun 20, 2022

    While by no means perfect, Marvel's Voices: Pride 2022is an excellent addition to this anthology series and the Marvel canon as a whole. It introduces new characters, recontextualizes old ones, and offers some truly great personal essays and history about queer identities and representation in Marvel. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Jun 22, 2022

    The rest of the stories here are fun in their own right, ranging from fan favorites (Young Avengers, Moondragon/Phylla-Vell) to recent breakthroughs (Hercules/Noh-Varr, Rna the Valkyrie) and even a real deep dive Id never heard of prior to reading this issue: the Wakandan couple Venomm and Taku. There isnt enough room for every LGBTQIA+ character in the Marvel universe to make an appearance here, and just one annual special is the minimum that could be done to improve the state of queer representation on the comics side of the company, but Marvel Voices: Pride is a great new tradition to spotlight a side of the industry that often goes ignored or undervalued by the powers at the top, and I hope it only gets bigger and better with each passing year. Happy Pride! Read Full Review

    However, while the book does have some genuinely interesting things to offer as well as some fun stories, this year's edition suffers from the same issues that last year's did in that the bulk of the issue feels more like rainbow-tinted marketing than a genuine, substantive celebration of queer representation.

    A fairly solid anthology, less frustratingly didactic than DC's Pride anthology (even if it's as nakedly a cash-in). Charlie Jane Anders & Ro Stein's story was the main event, and was worth the price of admission — I'm not familiar with Stein's work, but now I very much want to be — but the big surprise was Alyssa Wong & Stephen Byrne's excellent Young Avengers story. I've always wanted to like Wong's work more than I do, but she writes a really great Young Avengers. It's a shame it's an anthology one-off. The other stories are all at least adequate, although I was disappointed to see the bi triad from the end of Ewing's GotG run not acknowledged in a Pride anthology. Still, if this is the sort of marketing event that's aimed at you (or more

    This anthology is really middling. I love how homophobes revert to the biggest submissives on the planet as soon as an openly LGBT comic drops. Wasn't that the gay stereotype? Weren't we supposed to be the subs?

    Nore division from Marvel. A comic apartheid is developing, encouraged by both Marvel and DC.

    Stop dividing people.
