Marvel celebrates Black History Month with variant covers
(Web Desk) – Marvel has announced that it will celebrate Black History Month this February with a series of variant covers depicting some of Marvel’s most prominent Black heroes including the likes of Storm, Black Panther, Miles Morales, Falcon, War Machine, Blade, Ironheart and Valkyrie.
“First of all, I have to say that working for Marvel is a huge dream come true. I grew up watching Marvel movies and TV shows—especially the X-Men animated series in the ‘90s—and playing the whole Arcade franchise games. And to be honest, I never thought I would ever do work with them, but I’m glad to say I did,” the covers’ artist said.
“As an Afro/Latin artist, it’s a big honor for me to start with the company and work on some of the characters I like and who represent the Black community. Representation with respect is always a good thing, there can never be too much. I know I can only speak for myself, but I hope I did them justice.”
