Marvel has unveiled five variant covers coming this fall that celebrates STEAM.
“Our characters have been exciting fans for ages,” says David Gabriel, SVP Sales & Marketing, Marvel Comics. “With our new STEAM Variants, we plan to continue to motivate our fans to explore their passions in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math and present these disciplines through some of our favorite young heroes who are doing just that – following their dreams and preparing for the challenges that await them ahead.”
Back in my day (like two years ago), we called it STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), but apparently Art has been added to the lineup, which should make the Arts and Sciences colleges at Universities mighty happy.
The STEAM variants will include:
S (science) – MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR #13 by Joyce Chin
T (technology) – SPIDER-MAN #10 by Pasqual Ferry
E (engineering)— INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #1 by Mike McKone
A (art) — CHAMPIONS #2 by Pascal Campion
M (math) – GWENPOOL #8 by Will Sliney
The variants begin arriving in November.
