God Loves, Man Kills Celebrated with Variant Covers on Marvel's X-Books in March

In 1982, Marvel published X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills, the fifth in their Marvel Graphic Novels series that began with The Death of Captain Marvel. By Chris Claremont and Brent Anderson, the story was at first considered out of continuity, though that later changed. It remains one of the most well-known X-Men stories. They even based the second X-Men movie, X2: Electric Bugaloo, on it.

God Loves, Man Kills Celebrated with Variant Covers on Marvel's X-Books in March

Traditionally, the twenty-fifth anniversary is the silver anniversary. The fiftieth is the gold. The eighteenth? That's the variant cover anniversary. And respectful of tradition as they are known to be, Marvel will celebrate the variant anniversary with God Loves, Man Kills variant covers by Marcos Martin running across all of the ongoing X-Men books shipping in March except the ones which are launching that month.

That's what we learned from the Marvel March solicitations, though we were not treated to any images of the covers. Check out the solicits for the books getting God Loves, Man Kills variants in March.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
