As Marvel celebrates its 80th-anniversary, it’s finally time to revive a beloved 1990s tradition: the Marvel Swimsuit issue! Announced in July’s solicitations, Marvel us bringing the Swimsuit Issue back, but they’re not calling it the Swimsuit Issue, which would perhaps feel a bit too lecherous for a Walt Disney product. Instead, it’s called the Marvel Summer Special, but the solicit reveals… it’s the same thing as the 1990s Swimsuit Issues, featuring various artists drawing pinups of Marvel superheroes and supervillains having a fun time at the beach… presumably in bikinis and banana hammocks.
Check out the solicit and the cover below, true believers!
