"[F]or readers hungry for queer superheroes. Joe Glass' The Pride introduces a superhero universe built on LGBTQ+ inclusion, following a team that is explicitly created to show the range of the queer experience. The Pride features superheroes who are gay, lesbian, bi, trans, non-binary, and children of gay parents. Glass blends modern queer issues with classic superhero storytelling to tell narratives that classic superhero comics haven't touched. . . . The Pride excels at using queer struggle and joy to show a different side of the superhero genre."--AV Club
"I highly recommend this smart, charming, wonderful book to anyone who likes good comics. It's absolutely a pleasure to read and a clear labor of love."--Gail Simone, Batgirl, Leaving Megalopolis, Clean Room
"Old-school and progressive at the same time. Classic, high-energy superhero action that gives the queer community the heroes they've always deserved."--Steve Orlando, Midnighter, Virgil
"The Pride is the modern, inclusive, and compelling superhero epic the world needs today."--Alex Segura, co-writer of The Black Ghost and author of the acclaimed Pete Fernandez Miami Mystery novel series.
