In September, Marvel Comics turns their sights from iconic hip hop to rock & roll for their album cover homage variant covers.
Unlike the Hip Hop Variant Covers that have been appearing at the company for the last two years, the Marvel Rock Variant covers will be limited to only five covers debuting in September. According to the press release the five covers are “each paying tribute to a classic rock band that defined and expanded the music form.”
The issues with a variant cover are:
Guardians of the Galaxy #9 – Marvel Rock Variant by MIKE HAWTHORNE & NATHAN FAIRBAIRN
X-Men Gold #11 – Marvel Rock Variant by MIKE DEL MUNDO
X-Men Blue #11 – Marvel Rock Variant by DANIEL ACUNA
Mighty Thor #23 – Marvel Rock Variant by MARCO RUDY
Inhumans: Once and Future Kings #2 – Marvel Rock Variant by DAMION SCOTT
These issues all arrive in September.
