Lucasfilm will honor June Pride Month with variant covers to remind fans that LGBTQ the characters exist in the Star wars universe. All covers in the Marvel /Star wars The line will feature a queer character drawn by queer artists.
Participating artist Jacopo Camagni recounts Starwars.com, “As a member of the LGBTQ + creator community – a galaxy not so far away – I am honored to be a part of this project, and Sketching Yrica Quell was a journey to expand this endless galaxy, on board with her as as rebels against the Empire. . “
The High Republic # 6 Cover artist Javier Garrón expressed his enthusiasm for drawing Jedi Terec and Ceret for Pride Month, and I wanted to draw Terec and Ceret as the powerful characters they are, full of determination and hope. That’s what a great Jedi means to me. And representation matters. “
