Have a look at 8 awesome Women of Marvel variant comic book covers

This upcoming March, Marvel will release variant covers for 21 of their current comic-book titles. The goal is to put the emphasis on some of the awesome female characters populating the Marvel universe today, as well as on some of the very best and brightest female artists in the comics business; all of that is for Women’s History Month, something we can all get behind.

This is Marvel’s press release for the March event:

This March, Marvel is celebrating Women’s History Month by gathering some of the best and brightest female artists to tackle some of Marvel’s most iconic characters for a very special variant cover theme. Today, Marvel is pleased to present your new look at a selection of March’s Women of Marvel Variant Covers!

Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso had this to say:

“2014 was a huge year for Women of Marvel, both in our comics and behind the scenes. Marvel now has more titles starring female leads than ever before, the Women of Marvel panel is one of the most highly attended at conventions, and the weekly Women of Marvel podcast continues to grow.  In 2015, we intend to continue that tradition, and March’s Women of Marvel variant covers — featuring 20 of the best female artists in the industry – is just the beginning.”

With Emily Shaw, Marvel Editor extraordinaire, adding:

“Jeanine Schaefer and I have had the pleasure of collaborating with some of the best female artists in the industry to show-off their take on Marvel’s biggest characters and teams. It’s been an incredible experience to bring so many awesome women together for this project. And the results have been pretty awesome!”
