Over the course of the month, Marvel will be releasing special Variant Covers of select comic books to show support for National Bullying Prevention Month. The special editions will be available exclusively at Comic Book Stores and will include popular characters such as The Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America.
“The center of Marvel’s storytelling history is the eternal struggle between good and evil, with many of its greatest super heroes having to contend with – and rise above – bullying, in all its forms,” said Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief of Marvel Comics. “We hope that all our fans take a moment this month to educate themselves on the need to stop bullying among our youth.”
The following comic books, on-sale in October, will feature special variant covers:
- ROCKET RACCOON #4
- GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #20
- HULK #7
- CAPTAIN AMERICA #25
- LEGENDARY STAR-LORD #4
With the growing popularity of Superhero films, particularly in the Marvel Universe, it is exciting to see them standing up to take part in such an important cause. I will certainly be keeping my eyes peeled in October when I visit my friends at the comic book store!
