Marvel Comics has announced a new collection of variant covers celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, featuring art by InHyuk Lee.

Lee’s ASIAN AMERICAN AND PACIFIC ISLANDER HERTIAGE VARIANT COVERS (AAPI COVERS) will highlight Marvel’s ongoing, ever-expanding representation of the vastness of all Asian, Asian American and Pacific Island with stunning depiction of Marvel’s most inspiring Asian heroes. Blending their modern super hero looks with bold streetwear, traditional cultural elements, and more, these striking portraits will adorn the covers of your favorite Marvel titles and will star the following heroes:

· Shang-Chi
· Ms. Marvel
· Psylocke
· Jubilee
· Silk
· Amadeus Cho
· Jimmy Woo
· Armor

“I’m very proud to draw these eight Asian American And Pacific Islander Heritage Variant Covers showing the iconic Asian heroes of the Marvel universe,” Lee said in a press release from Marvel Comics. “Silk, Ms. Marvel, Psylocke, Shang-Chi… I love all these heroes so much and since I’m an illustrator and character designer, I proposed to renovate their outfits in a modern or tech-wear style, and Marvel liked my suggestion. When Emily Newcomen asked me about these covers, I had to accept despite my busy schedule because it was so meaningful. I’ve been working with Marvel for 10 years now and I’m happy to say we can always have fun working together.”

There are eight covers that will be available beginning August 4th.
