DOPE: Marvel Comics Is Set To Recreate 50 Hip-Hop Album Covers

July 21, 2015 0


This is too dope if you ask me. Marvel Comics and Stan Lee have always had a interesting relationship with the urban/hip-hop community and things just got better. This fall, Marvel Comics is set to relaunch 60 of their classic comics and along with the relaunch of their comics, they will be paying homage to the hip-hop world. Coming this October, Marvel will recreate 50 classic hip-hop album covers with Marvel themes and characters.

According to Marvel,

“For years, Marvel Comics and Hip-Hop culture have been engaged in an ongoing dialog,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “Beginning this October, we will shine a spotlight on the seamless relationship between those two unique forces in when we unveil the first of more than fifty variant covers, each of which pays tribute to an iconic album cover from the past 30 years that shaped pop-culture over the past three decades.”

Checkout some photos of the albums below and stay tuned to HHS1987 for more details.
