Marvel Unveils Hip-Hop Variant Covers Inspired by Chance the Rapper, Wu-Tang Clan and More

See Marvel favorites like Nova, Jessica Jones & Luke Cage embody rap icons.

Following last year’s Hip-Hop Variants Collection that re-imagined 50 comic book covers as iconic popular rap album covers, Marvel has just kicked off its second round. Standouts include Nova as Chance the Rapper on the Coloring Book, Luke Cage as LL Cool J on Bigger and Deffer, and Jessica Jones as Kevin Gates on the Islah cover. “Comics and hip-hop share a common narrative: They’re all about underdogs struggling, striving and persevering against overwhelming odds,” said Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso. “It’s no surprise that so many rappers have been influenced by the Marvel mythology or embraced the Marvel heroes over the decades.” Check out some of the collection below and see the first six covers via Playboy.
