Marvel Comics revealed plans Thursday to celebrate International Women’s Day in the most appropriate way possible: with a variant cover. Okay, maybe there are technically more appropriate ways, but variant covers are one of three Marvel solutions to everything, and since there’s already an unrelated super-mega-crossover event in the works and you can’t simply reboot women with a new #1 issue, a variant cover it is.
Check out the press release and the variant cover, by Elsa Charretier and Sarah Stern, below. International Women’s Day takes place on March 8th.
In celebration of International Women’s Day this March, Marvel is excited to show off a brand-new variant cover for CHAMPIONS #3 showcasing leading ladies Ms. Marvel, Viv Vision, Ironheart, Snowguard, and Wasp – as well as the legacy of Captain Marvel – illustrated by superstar artist Elsa Charretier and colorist Sarah Stern!
Best known for her work on 2017’s critically acclaimed THE UNSTOPPABLE WASP, Charretier’s art has appeared in series such as The Unbelievable Gwenpool and Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat! while Sarah Stern’s brilliant colors have been dazzling the industry in books such as Oni Press’s Rick and Morty and IDW’s Jem and the Holograms: Infinite.
Don’t miss your chance to pick up this stunning new variant cover in local comic shops on March 6th, just ahead of this year’s International Women’s Day!
