    So in my opinion, DC Pride #1 2022 is a beautiful, fantastic and all round absolutely brilliant celebration of some of the amazing and wonderful LGBTQIA+ characters and creators DC has! A book well worth the $10 cover price and definitely worth picking up.

    Much like its predecessor, DC Pride 2022 is a pitch-perfect and endlessly-delightful celebration of the publisher's LGBTQ+ characters. But this year's installment manages to be something so much more significant, cathartic, and triumphant than anything else in the space, in a way that could not be more fitting for DC's ever-growing roster of LGBTQ+ characters. While some stories might be a smidge more impactful than others, the entire experience of reading DC Pride 2022 is unparalleled, with stories that will make readers emotional in all of the right ways. This just might be one of the best and most important anthologies DC has put out in recent memory, and that's a cause for celebration.

    If I’m being honest, this book isn’t for me. That’s weird, right? I’m a gay man. I should be the core audience for a celebratory Pride issue. But I’m not. I don’t know if this is intentional on DC’s part – perhaps it is – but the book feels like it is targeted toward young kids. That’s how the stories are crafted anyway. That’s the tone and how the characters are written. For me though, it just doesn’t appear to be executed well. It’s almost as if DC missed the point with a number of these stories. So, if I were going to recommend something, it wouldn’t be this. If you want gay comics, go pick up Generations by Flavia Biondi. Hell, Love is Love will show you what this comic could be. If you want gay super-hero content, go pick up The Authority, Midnighter, or Greg Rucka’s Batwoman. All are far superior to the sum of these parts here. I’m happy DC’s releasing these books, but I think they can do better, and I genuinely hope they do.
