Check Out These Phil Noto Variant Covers for February 2015

They're so good, you might shed a tear.

During New York Comic Con, Marvel announced that the amazing Phil Noto would be doing 20 variant covers for the month of February 2015. If you've seen his art on his Tumblr or in our weekly Awesome Art Picks, you know he, on occasion, depicts the characters in various time periods in his "retro-candid 'photo' sketches."

Marvel was kind enough to share three of variants that haven't been seen yet.

DAREDEVIL #13

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #24

I didn't think it was possible to say this, but that Guardians cover makes Star Lord look douchier than Chris Pratt in GotG.

I've liked Noto's art since before it was cool.

@wardishy:

Check Tumblr. I think all of the other ones have been shown there in at least some form. You should be able to see them even without an account.

@akindoodle: When he did the last arc in Uncanny X-Force, I remember a lot of people saying they didn't like his art.

Rockets and Guardians will be mine probably.

Kind of funny that Black Widow will have a "variant Phil Noto" cover though

As in all his covers and faces would look alike or identical.

@donfelipe: I agree with you. His art is beautiful, but too many faces look too familiar.

I was just stating the "lot of people" in the previous comment by @xwraith. I love Noto!

I'm gonna say it.... I don't like Phil Noto's art (no offense Mr. Noto) all the faces look exactly the same, and a little too real, they seem out of place.

I think I need a time out.

My first thought seeing that Daredevil cover was "BITCH!".

I am so bitter.

I'll just envision it to be who that is supposed to be, that's all. Yes. Yes, that'll work. I feel better already...

The one, TRUE pairing.

Ahhhh.

Much better.

@ms-lola: I'm pretty sure that's Elektra

...

I need to lay off the vino. I think you're right.

Matt's wearing the same outfit he wore in Noto's previous drawing with Elektra and that woman is wearing the same Greek key design on her skirt that Elektra is wearing.

...

Now I'm just sad. Clearly that's an ode to the What If? issue between Matt and Elektra. Plus, it's coming out in February. Which is the month of Elektra's last issue for her run. That contains that awful holiday or whatever called Valentine's Day...

...

I am too invested in these two. (sad face)

Yeah, it's noticeable after a while.
