Marvel has revealed a new variant cover for July’s Infinity Wars Prime #1 by legendary comic book artist George Perez. Perez was the original artist on the Infinity series that started it all, 1991’s Infinity Gauntlet, though Perez was unable to complete the project due to various factors and was replaced by Ron Lim. The Infinity Gauntlet has seen many sequels over the years, both from original writer Jim Starlin and from unrelated Marvel rehashes, all trying to capture the magic of the original super-mega-crossover event.
With the smash hit film Avengers: Infinity War currently in theaters, Marvel is riding that wave of popularity with yet another sequel, Infinity Wars Prime. In the variant cover, Perez and colorist Richard Isanove depict Thanos, the villain (or hero?) of the film. Check it out below:
