Marvel to celebrate Joe Jusko’s Marvel Masterpieces art in variant cover series

Check out over 20 Marvel Masterpieces variant covers coming this October.

Press Release

Today, Marvel Comics has announced a new series of variant covers for this October and they all feature Joe Jusko’s amazing Marvel Masterpieces trading card illustrations. With 23 covers in total, Jusko’s art is some of the most iconic, especially for those who collected the Marvel Masterpieces trading cards in the 90s. While there are 23 cards, the original set included 100 standard cards, and 5 “Battle” Spectra Cards.

Jusko spoke about his work painting cover art back in 2017 at Boston Comic-Con. “I signed more of those cards than anything I’ve ever done,” Jusko said back in 2017. Jusko said painted work was starting to become more popular in American comics. This allowed him to learn on the job. “I filled a niche they really needed,” Jusko said, and now, “The talent is so much greater today than it was back then.”
