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.”

5 RONIN #1 – #5
Written by PETER MILLIGAN
Penciled by TOMM COKER, DALIBOR TALAJIC, LAURENCE CAMPBELL, GORAN PARLOV & LEANDRO FERNANDEZ
Covers by JOHN CASSADAY, MARK BROOKS, GIUSEPPE CAMUNCOLI, DAVID MACK, ED MCGUINESS & DAVID AJA

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.

Each issue has a $2.99 cover price and 5 Ronin begins in March 2011.

    Why not just do Marvel Oriental where the Marvel U takes place in Feudal Japan? Better yet, why not get actual manga creators to do their own take on certain Marvel heroes that AREN’T Wolverine?

    These covers are beautiful. If they’re of equivalent price to the A covers on the stands, I’ll be picking these up no contest.

    While I DO love the covers, unfortunately I’m just not a fan of any of these characters.

    Is it just me, or is this the Immortal Weapons cover dress, only with higher profile characters?
