Marvel hip-hop variant covers acknowledge link between comics and music

If you collected comics during the 80s and 90s you might remember some really cheesy comic-music crossovers like the embarrassing Nightcat

But comics have certainly inspired music quite a bit, particularly the genre of hip-hop where songs often make various kinds of references to comic book characters (“Homie I’ll be nicer to women when the Aquaman drowns and the Human Torch starts swimming” -Eminem, ‘Cold Wind Blows’).

To acknowledge this connection, but in a non-cheesy way, Marvel will be releasing a set of variant covers in October that parody classic hip-hop album covers. Some of these are quite cool. Have fun spotting all the references!
