Marvel Releases 20 Variant Covers Featuring Cosplayers
Cosplaying has been a part of comic book and fan convention culture for many years, but it has become much more mainstream of late, and has generally become an integral part of geek culture. This September, Marvel is honoring the fans that make their characters so popular by releasing over 20 variant covers that feature cosplayers paying homage to their favorite characters. 

Here's a full list of covers that will be released next month, including one that's mysteriously "classified":

1. A-Force #1 Cosplay Variant by Jay Justice
2. All-New Inhumans #1 Cosplay Variant by Yaya Han
3. Amazing Spider-Man #1 Cosplay Variant by Aaron Rivin
4. Astonishing Ant-Man #1 Cosplay Variant by SoloRoboto Industries
5. Avengers #0 Cosplay Variant by Michael Cox
6. Captain Marvel #1 Cosplay Variant by Judy Stephens
7. Daredevil #1 Cosplay Variant by Patrick 'Rick' Lane
8. Doctor Strange #1 Cosplay Variant by Allen Lee Hansard
9. Extraordinary X-Men #1 Cosplay Variant by Amanda Lynne Shafer
10. Guardians of the Galaxy #1 Cosplay Variant by Contagious Costuming
11. Invincible Iron Man #1 Cosplay Variant by Dale Oliver
12. Ms. Marvel #1 Cosplay Variant by Soni Balestier
13. Nova #1 Cosplay Variant by Cap Santiago
14. Sam Wilson Captain America #1 Cosplay Variant by Eddie Newsome
15. Spider-Gwen #1 Cosplay Variant by Kathrine Zan
16. Spider-Woman #1 Cosplay Variant by Yashuntafun Cosplay
17. The Mighty Thor #1 Cosplay Variant by Sarah Jean Maefs
18. The Mighty Thor #2 Cosplay Variant by Kevin Spooner
19. Uncanny Avengers #1 Cosplay Variant by Miss Kit Quinn
20. Uncanny Inhumans #1 Cosplay Variant by Kalel Sean
21. CLASSIFIED

We think this is a great idea. The covers are fun and whimsical, the perfect way for Marvel to pay tribute to their rabid fan base. And for characters who are more or less covered by their costumes, it's sometimes difficult to tell that it's not normal comic artwork.

Here are all the released titles, with the exception of the Sam Wilson Captain America #1 Cosplay Variant by Eddie Newsome, which is not available yet:
