To date, Marvel Comics has unveiled more than 70 hip hop variant covers since first announcing the initiative in July, and CBR has all of them in one place.
The covers, illustrated by acclaimed artists from both inside and outside of Marvel, reference famous album covers from decades of hip hop history. The variants started as part of Marvel’s All-New, All-Different lineup relaunch, but have continued beyond that point.
“The response to this initiative exceeded our wildest expectations,” Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso told CBR. “So, like the Skottie Young or Deadpool variants, they’re going to be a regular part of our variant programs moving forth.”
So take a superhero-centric trip through hip hop history with every Marvel variant released thus far.
