Marvel Comics recently invoked “Run the Jewels” for a series of variant comic book covers. Now, they’re paying homage to even more hip-hop greats with a series of covers inspired by legendary hip-hop albums.
The series features tributes to albums by Wu-Tang Clan, Notorious B.I.G., Ol’ Dirty Bastard, A Tribe Called Quest, A$AP Rocky, Tyler the Creator, Lauryn Hill, 50 Cent, De La Soul, Dr. Dre, and Eric B. & Rakim. It’s the first batch—more than 50 covers are planned. Check out some examples above and below via Buzzfeed and Uproxx.
“For years, Marvel Comics and hip-hop culture have been engaged in an ongoing dialogue,” Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso said in a press release. “Beginning this October, we will shine a spotlight on the seamless relationship between those two unique forces.”
