MARVEL COMICS: THE VARIANT COVERS
THE VARIANT COVERS
By John Rhett Thomas
Cover by Mike del Mundo
The variant cover phenomenon began in 1986 and was immediately embraced by fans everywhere. It was then bolstered in 1991 by Marvel Comics’ X-Men #1 setting the world record for the best-selling comic of all time, which is attributed to the astonishing collection of five variant covers released for the issue.
Variant covers have now become a regular part of Marvel Comics’ diverse output, with spectacularly creative alternate covers being created for many key issues. These works of art are collected in Marvel Comics: The Variant Covers [Insight Editions; March 30, 2021] which showcases over 400 of the finest and most-famous variant covers ever produced alongside exclusive interviews from leading comic artists and industry experts.
Featuring an astounding selection of covers starring fan-favorite characters, such as Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Panther, the X-Men, and many more, Marvel Comics: The Variant Covers is a must-have for casual fans and comic book aficionados alike.
