Back in March Marvel released eight variant covers by Jen Bartel in celebration of Women’s History Month, now one is being reimagined in the flesh.
Back in March, Marvel released a line of gorgeous variant covers highlighting some of their dynamic female characters, including She-Hulk, and now a powerful cosplay recreation has been carried out in admiration of the original art. Sought after comic book artist Jen Bartel was behind the eight vibrant variant covers released throughout Women’s History Month, and with this new show of fan love, it’s obvious her work hasn’t been forgotten.
Throughout this year, both Marvel and DC have released countless variant covers celebrating their diverse casts of characters. From DC highlighting their LGBTQ+ heroes, to Marvel giving the stage to their AAPI heroes through Inhyuk Lee’s covers, to celebrating the women that make these stories what they are, these leaders in comics have been providing the space for their diverse characters and creators to be showcased in stunning and imaginative ways. In the case of Marvel’s commemoration of Women’s History Month, they gave Jen Bartel the reigns to reimagine eight of their heroes in a new light, and the results were stunning; so stunning that her work is still being heralded through flattery’s greatest form: imitation.
