Marvel to feature cosplayers in variant covers this October

Marvel’s been having fun with its cover art this year, including taking inspiration from Run The Jewels and classic hip-hop album covers. And the comics giant will soon salute the DIY spirit of cosplayers with its Cosplay Variant program. /Film reports that Marvel will roll out 20 variant covers featuring cosplay versions of its heroes this fall; participating titles include Iron Man, Amazing Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel, and Spider-Gwen, among others. We’ve included some of the covers below so you can marvel at other people’s ability to dress in tights and make helmets and breastplates out of stuff in their homes (though that’s probably not how these costumes were actually put together). The Cosplay Variants will debut in October once Secret Wars wraps up.
