Building on what is now a retro period in Marvel history, Marvel is bringing us a set of collectable variant covers inspired by the 1992 period. You may remember this, with the class Chris Claremont X-Men, the different Marvel Animated Series, and the Rob Liefeld biceps. This was brought back into popular consciousness with X-Men ’92, the Secret Wars tie-in that reminds us of that classic period. Now the relaunch titles are all getting this treatment, ranging from #1s through 3rd issues, and will be coming after the hip-hop variant covers and the cosplay variant covers are already released.
The issues will be coming out late(probably December, though this hasn’t been made official) in 2015, and Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel said in the press release:
“Witnessing that memorable era of comics brought to life again got us thinking about all the fun incarnations of Marvel’s most popular characters. Before we knew it we had a huge list of 1990s characters ready to make their 2015 debut!”
Right now there are only six of these 26 total cover images actually released. We are putting those six in an image gallery below with the issue name, number, and the artists who did the work. Above that we are putting the complete list of Marvel ’92 variant covers, each with the artists who drew this retro throwback. When the rest of the images are released, we will update this.
