VARIANT: Marvel shows off 5 Ronin covers

by

With the new 5 Ronin mini set to arrive from Marvel, the company has unveiled the covers by artist David Aja.

“From the very beginning, I wanted to keep each cover down to two colors that identify with each of the five characters” explains artist, David Aja. “We set out to come up with a design that would grab your eyes from the shelves compared to the rest of the covers while keeping uniformity throughout the series and I think we accomplished that here.”

Featuring Wolverine, Psylocke, Hulk, Deadpool and the Punisher, Marvel’s deadliest heroes, these covers are a must have for any fan!  Bound together by the same fate, yet alone in their existence, the Ronin are forced to walk the lonely path of the masterless samurai in the violent and tumultuous world of feudal Japan to find those who they have been wronged by.
