Marvel Announces Variant Covers For Avengers, Iron Man, Thor, X-Men

Hands may be wringing in the film world over what Marvel series releases next or who portrays the next big super hero, but for collectors these aren’t issues at all. In January, avid collectors can relive key aspects of Marvel history through a new lens: that of artists who have reimagined covers of cultural significance.

But the variants themselves are only part of the story. The illustrators who created them are a story onto themselves. They are the 2023 class of “Stormbreakers,” the artists Marvel says are up-and-coming in the industry (though up-and-coming in this sense largely means they’ve already worked with Marvel quite intensely.) It’s a diverse class, and it’s the more modern iteration of the company’s “Young Guns” program, which launched many a lauded career, including those of Steve McNiven, Jim Cheung, Sara Pichelli and Ryan Stegman.

The new class of Stormbreakers includes Elena Casagrande, Nic Klein, Jan Bazaldua, Chris Allen, Martin Coccolo, Lucas Werneck, Federico Vicentini and C.F. Villa. Between them, they’ve drawn Thor, Spider-Man, X-Men and Black Widow.

The variant covers, to go on sale for weekly drops starting January 2023, include:

  • X-FORCE #36 STORMBREAKERS VARIANT COVER by NIC KLEIN
  • AVENGERS: WAR ACROSS TIME #1 STORMBREAKERS VARIANT COVER by MARTIN COCCOLO
  • X-MEN #18 STORMBREAKERS VARIANT COVER by ELENA CASAGRANDE
  • IMMORTAL X-MEN #10 STORMBREAKERS VARIANT COVER by FEDERICO VICENTINI
