Last month we shared the news about the upcoming “Thor” series from Marvel Comics and if you missed that announcement just click HERE to be up to speed. Now we’ve begun to get the variant covers that were done by some of the industries best creatives. As you might expect, I will be continually adding to this original narrative as each cover gets revealed instead of posting a brand-new single post. This worked out well for the recent Artist Variants for “X-Men” #1 and “Fantastic Four” #1 so why change a working process. I’ll begin with the main cover of the series that will launch in January 2020. Let’s take a look shall we.
The Press Release:
This February, follow the exploits of one of the most feared women in the galaxy in NEBULA, an all-new six-issue series from rising Marvel star Vita Ayala with art by Claire Roe! In NEBULA, the daughter of Thanos and sister of Gamora will finally get her time in the spotlight — and she has her eye on a very secret device. But will one of the galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunters get to it first? Marvel fans know that Nebula rarely lets anyone get in her way…
“[Since] the movies kind of reinvigorated interest in her, we’ve gotten to see her pop up more and more in the comics. And now, here’s her solo title where all we do is really dive deep and explore who she is and why she does what she does. That’s kind of my jam,” Ayala said in an exclusive interview with Refinery29. “I really want to kind of showcase how cool Nebula is even though she’s a bad guy, and how much more complex she is than what we might assume….it was my mission to try and show who she is on a kind of two-dimensional level. Being able to be in her head and fill out all the corners is really given me an appreciation for her, and I want other people to also love her and want her to do her best.”
