Eight New Jen Bartel Variants Arriving at Marvel Comics
In honor of Women’s History Month, Marvel Comics is releasing a series of eight variant covers by Eisner Award-winning superstar artist Jen Bartel (Blackbird)!
The eight variant covers each feature one of the women superheroes of Marvel, depicted in a stylish outfit based on the time period in which they respectively made their first appearances.
Jen Bartel’s Glamorous Variant Covers
Marvel first announced the series of variants in January, when they revealed the first four covers: Avengers #43 featuring Jen Walters, A.K.A. She-Hulk, who first appeared in 1980, Iron Man #7 featuring Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat, who first appeared in 1944; X-Men #19 featuring Emma Frost, who first appeared in 1980; and Silk #1 featuring Cindy Moon, A.K.A. Silk, who first appeared in 2014.
Then, last week, the second half of the variant series was announced. In this batch, Marvel revealed Bartel’s take on four more super-powered women: Black Cat #4 featuring Felicia Hardy, A.K.A.

Captain Marvel’s Marvelous Kicks
