Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite Variant Covers Announced For August

Seeing as how DC had amazed us with its recent Injustice 2 prequel comic, it pleases us to learn that Marvel is also dipping its toe into the video game tie-in pool. Sure, they aren’t doing a full-blown tie-in series of their own – something we’re hoping they consider for the future – but their announcement of a generous helping of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite variant covers is most definitely a step in the right direction.

So, before you pick up the next installment in the popular fighting game franchise this September, be sure to stop by your local comic shop all throughout August in order to get your hands on the various participating titles. Unfortunately, we don’t know which artists will be lending their talents to this endeavor as of now, but Marvel Games executive creative director Bill Rosemann did have this to say:

“Fight fans, if you can’t wait until September 19th to see heroes from two awesome universes collide in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, we’re bringing you a sneak peek one month earlier when the battle explodes onto the covers of your favorite comics. The game makers at Capcom and Marvel are working closely with a team of the industry’s top talent to deliver all the over the top intensity you’ve come to expect from this fan favorite franchise.”

Okay, so that kind of puts us back at square one, but it at least shows that various divisions at Marvel are excited about this. Anyway, here’s a list of each book that’ll receive the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite treatment, along with some promo art the publisher is circulating:
