I’m loving this new variant theme coming up from Marvel paying homage to classic hip-hop album covers from legends like The Notorious B.I.G., Dr. Dre, The Wu-Tang Clan, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Old Dirty Bastard and Lauryn Hill.
Accompanying each all-new #1 from Marvel Comics coming this fall, fans will get the chance to purchase their own Marvel Comics variant cover featuring their favorite Marvel characters paying homage to some of the most well-known and vocal musical artists over the past couple of years.
“For years, Marvel Comics and Hip-Hop culture have been engaged in an ongoing dialog,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso said in a statement. “Beginning this October, we will shine a spotlight on the seamless relationship between those two unique forces in when we unveil the first of more than fifty variant covers, each of which pays tribute to an iconic album cover from the past 30 years that shaped pop-culture over the past three decades.”
The Marvel variants kick off in October.
