Almost two months ago, Marvel announced a series of comic book variant covers celebrating cosplayers. If you’re not familiar with the phrase “variant covers,” it basically means an alternate cover to the standard one for a given comic book issue. There are usually multiple variants available in different numbers for each issue of a published comic. The cosplay variant covers highlight 20 different cosplayers dressed as everyone from Wasp, to Thor, to Spider-Gwen, to Medusa, to Ant-Man. A variety of cosplayers are represented, and it’s fun to see a big company like Marvel embrace the fandom in this way. The covers will be available for various Marvel titles in October – you can ask your local comic book shop to keep you updated on specific arrival dates.
