A Comic Book that will include LGBTQIA+ characters from the DC Universe and today, the publisher gave the fans a sneak peek into this new anthology. The characters will include the following: Batwoman, Renee Montoya, Alan Scott, Midnighter, Apollo, Extraño, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Constantine, and more! DC Pride will launch on June 8th.
DC Pride #1 will also include full-page profiles of DCTV’s LGBTQIA+ characters paired with Q&A’s from the actors who play them.
