Marvel’s Cosplay Variants Return w New Covers/New Characters

I’ve long admired the skills that so many of the Cosplayers that I’ve encountered at the New York Comic Con and other conventions showcase to the world with their awesome representations of great heroes and villains. Now it seems like the folks over at the House Of Ideas are revisiting their “Cosplay Variant Covers” initiative and giving us “14” new covers and characters. Let’s take a look at the full press release and these awesome images.

The Press Release:
Cosplay is taking over again this fall! Following last year’s wildly successful round of variant covers, Marvel is excited to bring an entirely new wave of MARVEL: COSPLAY VARIANTS to select comics throughout September and October! Featuring new costumes, new cosplayers, and new characters – these mighty Marvel fans are brining your favorite super heroes to life across nearly 15 different titles!

“The response to our first set of COSPLAY VARIANTS was so incredible, we simply had to do a second wave,” says Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor-in-Chief. “And, of course, we were able to find a great crop of cosplayers with some truly fantastic costumes. We’re thrilled to shine a spotlight on an ever-growing community that continues to show love for us and our characters.”

Look for these exciting Marvel: (Cosplay Variant) s coming to these titles later this year:

Marvel Comics First Issues Coming In November 2015

Wow was that a fun-filled October or what? I’m saying it like that because not only did we have a lot of awesome Metal shows to slam around at but also a ton of super cool comic books to read and of course the latest edition of NY Comic Con which I know so many of our regional readers had assembled at in force. So here we are now in November and we will be getting “27” new series from Marvel Comics which amounts to almost a new title per day of the month if you wanted to get playful with math. For the sake of shopping and my own sanity I have marked down all of the new series coming out this month from Marvel Comics and they are listed alphabetically for easy visual digestion. Some will hit the stands this coming week and the rest as the month progresses. As usual the cover art and premise/creative team comes from the publicity team over at Marvel and then I’ll be chiming in. Better start requesting a couple of extra shifts at work to cover this amount of monthly titles because there are just so darned many to choose from. I suggest you keep a pencil and paper near you as you make your way through this massive grouping. Here we go.

All-New, All-Different Avengers #1-2: The Avengers are dead–long live the Avengers! Earth’s Mightiest Heroes–Captain America, Thor, Vision, and Iron Man–are living separate lives, not tied to any team–but when a threat from beyond the stars targets our world, fate draws them together once more, alongside Nova, Ms. Marvel, and Miles Morales a.k.a. Spider-Man!

Judging by the rundown of first issues premiering in February, I can honestly say that comic book readers are in for a Marvel-ous group of treats and I’ve lined out a bunch of them below. As usual we have cribbed the official description from their press provisions along with the cover art and I’ll close it up by speaking my thoughts. Here we go.
