Marvel has published several Marvel’s Voices anthologies over the last few years that focus on underrepresented characters and creators. Now that initiative is expanding to digital, as Marvel has announced new Marvel’s Voices stories as part of their Infinity Comics line on Marvel Unlimited.
The first, which launches during Pride Month, is a four-part Iceman story by Luciano Vecchio.
“As a queer creator, getting the chance to work as writer/artist on one of my favorite characters, and be part of the cultural conversation about queer rep in mainstream media with my own work, feels necessary and vital for me,” Vecchio told Out Magazine. “I had the chance before in the Marvel’s Voices specials to express my ideas about LGBTQ+ superheroes as a collective, and now I get to explore the individual experience of Iceman, which isn’t exchangeable to that of any other character.”
Here’s the description from Marvel: Bobby Drake has had a big year, and after helping terraform the entire planet of Mars, he’s out to explore what his Omega potential truly means. Kicking off Marvel Comics’ commemoration of Pride month, Marvel’s Voices: Iceman is a four-part series that celebrates life, love, and all the beautiful complications in between.
Marvel plans to release similar stories every week on the app. “With a rotation of story arcs and one-shots by a diverse set of celebrated creators, every fan will find something to love in the newest comic to take Marvel Unlimited by storm.” The first chapter of Iceman is available now, with subsequent chapters being launched on Marvel Unlimited on Wednesdays.
