We spoke to this year’s artists behind the Black History Month variant covers—Chris Allen, Ernanda Souza, Karen S. Darboe, and Ken Lashley—about their favorite Marvel moments, plus what inspires them as artists. Best of all, you can pick up each of these special edition variants, plus more Black History Month specials, in comic shops this month!
“It’s important to see that there’s a place for every story in the Marvel saga. There is an importance in seeing yourself in the mythologies that we tell each other. We can be the king, the villain, the fighter, the archer, and the dragon. The truth is that we are all of those things and when you give people a mythology in which they can view themselves, like Wakanda or like the worlds of the X-Men, it empowers them in ways that can be very surprising.”
