With Secret Wars still flying to its conclusion, Marvel is hoping to restructure with a series of variant covers that give us the Story Thus Far.

“The Story Thus Far Variants are something new we’ve never attempted before,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “Using one piece of artwork to give new fans a quick snapshot of what’s going on and get them ready for the second arc. In an effort to continue promotion of these exciting new titles, we’ll also be using this artwork for online advertising and in comic shops across the country. ”

The issues getting this variant treatment are:

ALL-NEW INHUMANS #5
ALL-NEW X-MEN #4
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #9
CARNAGE #6
DEADPOOL #8
DOCTOR STRANGE #6
EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN #8
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #6
INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #6
SPIDER-MAN 2099 #8

The issues are expected to arrive in February and March with more variants arriving in April.
