Last year. Marvel showed a lot of love to the cosplayer community by releasing variant covers featuring the same people who show up to every convention, dressed to the nines.
After a successful run last year, Marvel is bringing back Cosplay Variant Month back for September and October this year, and the publisher revealed the next crop of variants.
"The response to our first set of Cosplay Variants was so incredible, we simply had to do a second wave," said Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor-in-Chief. "And, of course, we were able to find a great crop of cosplayers with some truly fantastic costumes. We're thrilled to shine a spotlight on an ever-growing community that continues to show love for us and our characters."
