icon - marvel comics (thumbnail).JPGMarvel Comics are embracing the cosplayers that are as much as part and parcel of popular culture and comic conventions as anything with an exciting series of twenty cover variants this October – imaginatively called Cosplay Variants – featuring some of the biggest names in cosplay.

From Allen Lee HansardMiss Kit Quinn and Soni Balestier, to the amazing costume work of Dale Oliver, Contagious Costuming and legendary cosplayer Yaya Han, the covers take on some of Marvel’s most iconic heroes performed by the best in the business. And Marvel are very happy to embrace the subculture in this way, on their covers and at live events.

“Cosplayers are taking over,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “Each convention I go to, it seems like there are more and more fans dressing up like their favorite Marvel characters. These homemade, hand-crafted costumes are so elaborate, it looks like they leapt off the comic page. The Cosplay Variant initiative is our way of supporting a community that supports us.”
