Of all the variant covers we’ve seen over the last year, the cosplay variants seem to be the most exciting, because they show the craft of talented cosplayers from around the world on the covers of Marvel comics! It’s such great exposure for cosplay and the publisher, that it makes sense for Marvel to continue the variant line throughout the rest of the year.

“The response to our first set of Cosplay Variants was so incredible, we simply had to do a second wave,” says Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor-in-Chief. “And, of course, we were able to find a great crop of cosplayers with some truly fantastic costumes. We’re thrilled to shine a spotlight on an ever-growing community that continues to show love for us and our characters.”

Here is a rundown of the covers and cosplayers that will be featured:

1. A-FORCE #9 COSPLAY VARIANT by Crystal Melton
2. A-FORCE #10 COSPLAY VARIANT by Corrine Vitek
3. BLACK PANTHER #7 COSPLAY VARIANT by ScorpKing Costuming
4. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #12 COSPLAY VARIANT by Johnny Junkers
5. MOCKINGBIRD #8 COSPLAY VARIANT by Lauren Matesic of Castle Corsetry
6. PATSY WALKER, A.K.A. HELLCAT! #11 COSPLAY VARIANT by DJ Spider
7. SCARLET WITCH #10 COSPLAY VARIANT by Yaya Han
8. SILK #12 COSPLAY VARIANT by Rian Synnth
9. SPIDER-MAN #8 COSPLAY VARIANT by Pierre Demery
10. THE PUNISHER #6 COSPLAY VARIANT by Mike Powell
11. THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #12 COSPLAY VARIANT by Riki ‘Riddle’ Lecotey
12. THE UNBELIEVABLE GWENPOOL #6 COSPLAY VARIANT by Alana Waffles
13. THUNDERBOLTS #5 COSPLAY VARIANT by Wesley Johnson
14. THE ULTIMATES #11 COSPLAY VARIANT by Knobel Creations

Missing in the images from Marvel are covers for Black Panther #7 and The Ultimates #11. I’m sure those cosplay covers will be just as fantastic as those above.
