Marvel Celebrates Chinese New Year With Connecting Variant Covers

by James Ferguson

What better way to ring in the Chinese New Year than with a series of connecting variant covers? Marvel Comics has revealed the first batch running through three Spider-Man comics, illustrated by Jie Yuan, an artist found through a nationwide talent search of China.

Editor-in-Chief CB Cebulski says:

It was a thrill for me to visit art schools and conventions around China last year as part of this massive talent search! We reviewed hundreds of submissions and these covers are by the artists whose unique visual styles we felt best captured the Marvel characters. We hope fans love them as much as we do as Marvel continues our global approach to discovering diverse artistic voices!

These comics arrive on February 12th, 2020. If you want to snag a copy, make sure you pre-order them by Monday, January 20th, 2020. That’s the final order cutoff date for comic shops.
