Get a Sneak Peek at DC Pride 2022

DC Pride 2022’s storytellers have ambitious goals: to deliver new stories, highlight DC’s fan-favorite LGBTQIA+ characters, and show fans more pride than ever before. DC has released more details about DC Pride 2022, including an excerpt from Nicole Maines’ introduction, the addition of Kevin Conroy (the iconic voice of Batman in Batman: The Animated Series), J. Bone and Aditya Bidikar to an already packed roster of talent, a first look at some of the artwork coming in from the creative teams, and more. Local comic shops are taking preorders through May 1 and the 104-page Prestige format comic will publish in print and on digital platforms on May 31.

So, what’s inside DC Pride 2022? Will there be a Harley and Ivy story? Will there be a Tim Drake story? What other characters are getting a spotlight? The answers are “yes, yes, and wait and see!” but before DC reveals of the full list of talent contributing to DC Pride 2022, please take a moment to read a passage from Nicole Maines’ introduction. The author, actress and real-life superhero is on the front lines of activism and has an important message for readers:

“Representation is something that so many take for granted. But as queer people, we have always understood not only its necessity, but its power. Seeing yourself in the media you consume is validating in a way that says, “You are not alone.”

Seeing yourself in comic books, though, in your favorite superheroes, is especially powerful. It tells us that not only are there other people like us out there (something that this young trans girl growing up in rural Maine desperately needed), but that they stand alongside the very best of us.

They are the best of us.

Superheroes set the bar and they set it high. Because if you can be a superhero, you can be anything. And superheroes are categorized as such not due to their superhuman abilities, extraterrestrial origins, or truly fabulous fashion choices. They are superheroes because they stand up for what is right against any odds.

It is their courage that sets them apart.” —Nicole Maines, DC Pride 2022

In this issue, the evil Vampirella, Bloodwing, and her captive Book at last reach the fabled Library, the final stop before she can carry out her nefarious plan of destroying the Artist and rewriting all of the Vampirellas’ realities. But there are still major roadblocks: Book is missing the crucial pages that will lead them directly to the Artist, and an army of Vampirellas from realities far and wide hellbent on stopping her have just arrived at the Library. Will the daughters of Drakulon be able to defeat their psychotic sister and save the threads of the Fabric, or will Bloodwing vanquish them all and reshape their stories in her own glorious, twisted image?

The mysterious and deadly Bloodwing is killing all the Vampirellas throughout the fabric of reality—but who is he, and why is he doing this? It’s up to Vampirella to learn the secrets of Bloodwing and stop him.

Thanks to the Book of Prophecy (in a very unexpected way), Vampirella embarks on her most mind-bending adventure yet, traveling the various Threads of the Fabric to rally the Vampirellas of the multiple realities to join her in stopping the extermination of her self. First stop, an apocalyptic world transformed by a Chaos Plague. Will the Vampirella of this ravaged world heed our Vampirella’s warning, or will she too fall to the savagery of Bloodwing?
