Marvel Reveals Phil Noto Interlocking Variants for 80th Anniversary

Marvel's 80th anniversary, not Phil Noto's.


Marvel Comics has released a look at variant covers by Phil Noto styled after Marvel's "decades" theme in celebration of the publisher's 80th anniversary (jeeze, and they're worried a married Spider-Man makes him look old). The nine covers are interlocking, but not in the usual side-by-side way. Instead, in a move that would have made Steve Ditko proud, the covers lock together in a 9-panel grid to form one full image.

Check out the press release, and the covers, below.

In celebration of Marvel's 80th Anniversary, Marvel is excited to kick off 2019 with a series of special variant covers, designed by acclaimed superstar artist Phil Noto! Highlighting some of Marvel's most beloved super heroes, each cover represents a different decade in Marvel's storied and momentous history – and Marvel is proud to present all 9 covers coming together to create one visually stunning image!

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.
