Marvel Comics celebrates LGBTQIA+ characters and creators with June 23's Marvel's Voices: Pride #1 (opens in new tab), and now we have an expansive look at almost a dozen pages from the 48-page special along with a new trailer. 

Check them out here:

"Since 1992's revolutionary Alpha Flight #106 proudly confirmed Northstar's sexuality, Marvel has represented LGBTQ+ identities with a wide array of characters and stories," continues Marvel's announcement of Marvel's Voices: Pride #1. "Marvel's Voices: Pride #1 will continue this legacy with thrilling adventures starring Mystique and Destiny, Nico Minoru and Karolina Dean, Iceman, Daken, Karma, and more."

And in what is perhaps the marque story of the anthology, Young Avengers creators Allen Heinberg and artist Jim Cheung are reuniting to tell their first story of Wiccan and Hulkling since their marriage.

Marvel's Voices: Pride #1 is also coming out with a bevy of variant covers. In addition to a primary cover (and two variants) by Luciano Vecchio, there are variants by Ernanda Souza, Jeffrey Veregge, Kris Anka, Olivier Coipel, Paulina Ganucheau, Russell Dauterman, four by Phil Jimenez, and Tyler Kirkham. There's also a pride flag variant.

Here's a gallery of the released Marvel's Voices: Pride #1 covers so far:
