Now Marvel Legacy Announces 1960 T-Shirt Variant Covers. We Try To Work Out What That Means.

Posted by July 13, 2017 Comment

We get the announcement. That Marvel Comics, as part of their Marvel Legacy promotion, are to run T-Shirt Variant covers of a number of their first Marvel Legacy titles. And that they will feature retro-style art from Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko.

By which I think they mean, actual art by Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko from the period. So it is actual retro, rather than retro-style. And, I guess, printed so they look like they are on T-Shirts. Just no cloth covers. At least I presume not, who knows? Of course there weren’t that many Marvel T-shirts in the sixties… is this more hipster shirts from today featuring 1960’s artwork? And a photo of them on the cover? With or without the beard honing into view?

We’ll try and work out more at a later date. Here are the comics getting the 1960s T-Shirt treatment…

1. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #789
2. AVENGERS #672
3. INCREDIBLE HULK #709
4. INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #593
5. MIGHTY THOR #700
6. X-MEN: BLUE #13
7. DAREDEVIL #595
8. MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #1
9. DOCTOR STRANGE #381
