Steve Orlando and Luciano Vecchio dream somnus for ‘Marvel’s Voices: Pride’ # 1
“MARVELS VOICES: PRIDE is ticking so many dream jobs for me! In addition to the cover, a frame variant and a story that I was allowed to write myself, I was also allowed to create a new queer character that was introduced in a story written by Steve Orlando, ”said Vecchio. “I’m so happy to finally be officially working with Steve and immediately fell in love with the concept and backstory of Somnus. I got some suggestions from him and editor Sarah Brunstad, but also a lot of freedom to suggest ideas. This time, the design process itself felt almost like channeling. I wanted him to have a touch of the ‘man of your dreams’, very charming and human, but at the same time unreachable. Some visual elements are a mix of mod fashion, a bit of Hellfire Gala influence and a palette based on Etruscan vase art, alluding to the god he’s named after. “
Somnus will also be the star of Luciano Vecchio’s celebratory MARVEL’S VOICES: PRIDE # 1 Frame Variant Cover! In homage to the iconic Marvel 25th anniversary covers released in 1985, Somnus is in the spotlight surrounded by some of Marvel’s brightest LGBTQ + heroes. Check out the fully revealed cover above and don’t miss this uplifting Marvel story when Somnus makes his first appearance on MARVEL’S VOICES: PRIDE # 1 on June 23!
