Marvel’s Covers Take A Cosplay Twist!

Trust Marvel to find the single most awesome way to include fans in their comics!

With 21 variants of cosplayers as our favourite heroes, Marvel may have actually discovered a way to make comics even geekier than the photographic covers of the ’90s.

Of the 21 lined-up covers, here’re 19 (not pictured: Sam Wilson Captain America ft. Eddie Newsome, and a “Classified” title).

“Cosplayers are taking over,” says Marvel’s Senior Vice-President of Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “Each convention I go to, it seems like there are more and more fans dressing up like their favourite Marvel characters. These homemade, hand-crafted costumes are so elaborate, it looks like they leapt off the comic page. The Cosplay Variant initiative is our way of supporting a community that supports us.”
