ComiXology has announced that The Pride Season Two will be joining their ComiXology Originals as the first Submit series comiXology has invested in to continue through their Originals imprint. The Pride is from creator and writer Joe Glass. I began The Pride because I want to tell stories where queer characters and stories are not only told through metaphor, analogy and subtext, but are open, accessible and show a diversity of life not usually seen in the medium,” says writer Joe Glass.

We’ve been big fans of The Pride since it debuted through comiXology Submit in 2014,” said Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content. “We are excited about the future of The Pride and so have taken steps to invest in it and have it continue as a comiXology Originals title. It’s fantastic to be able to pick up a series that debuted on Submit and help extend its reach to a broader worldwide audience.
In The Pride Season Two, the team returns with exciting new adventures where they must stop a nuclear meltdown, welcome new heroes, and investigate a spate of mysterious attacks on the world’s biggest pop star.
The Pride Season Two will debut June 5th as part of the comiXology Originals program.

Together they fight to protect the world from prejudice, misrepresentation, and injustice, not to mention a pesky supervillain or two!
