Marvel Comics has revealed some of the photos that will make up their next wave of cosplay variant covers. The new batch of covers serves as a follow-up to 2015's line of cosplay covers, which featured Marvel fans in painstakingly detailed recreations of iconic Marvel costumes. This time around, the cosplayed characters include Dazzler, Punisher, Scarlet Witch, Squirrel Girl, Galactus and more.
"The response to our first set of Cosplay Variants was so incredible, we simply had to do a second wave," said Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor-in-Chief, in a press release. "And, of course, we were able to find a great crop of cosplayers with some truly fantastic costumes. We're thrilled to shine a spotlight on an ever-growing community that continues to show love for us and our characters."
Around 15 different series will get the cosplay variant treatment, beginning in September and running throughout the fall. You can check out 13 of the covers below.
