    All in all, I was happy with this year’s Marvel’s Voices: Pride. Some stories had deeply meaningful messages, while others remind us of the rich tapestry of queer characters Marvel has fostered, added, or grown in recent years. Pair these tales with insightful interviews and it’s a must-buy for anyone interested in queer representation.

    But Why Tho?

    There’s nothing wrong with stories that act as pure celebrations or ones that are meant to generate excitement about a character or a series. But Marvel Voices: Pride 2023 #1 just doesn’t feel like it knew how to do either very well. The most exciting characters don’t seem to have any immediate futures and too many of the stories were drowned out by their massive exposition dumps or their uninteresting plots.

    Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1 (2023) is the publisher’s attempt at an anthology to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and unfortunately, it mostly falls into a “well, they tried” category. Save for the Wiccan and Hulkling story—which looks polished, well-drawn and colored, and coheres well—most of the issue both looks and feels thrown together and performative. Nearly all of the stories center around relatively obscure or infrequently used characters (and in one case, a brand new character that seems like they’ll never be seen again) and when the issue does give representation with more popular characters, it feels very superficial – the comic literally opens with a Gwenpool story where she is, generally, addressing the reader to say (and I’m paraphrasing) “it’s okay to be different, kids!” The best part of the issue is actually not the comics stories at all, but the prose pieces sprinkled throughout. Those are worth reading. But overall, Marvel could do so much better and it’s disappointing they did not.
