Jeffrey Veregge Illustrates ‘Heroes Reborn’ Variant Covers
by James Ferguson
Heroes Reborn is still months away but Marvel is already pulling out the big guns. The series from writer Jason Aaron and artist Ed McGuiness imagines a world without the Avengers, where the Squadron Supreme took up the mantle as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Marvel has announced a line of variant covers for the series by artist Jeffrey Veregge, giving readers a unique look at this new Marvel Universe with depictions of Hyperion, Blur, Doctor Spectrum, and more, all in Veregge’s Formline style.
“My first real encounter with Squadron Supreme as a reader came back in the late 90’s with the immortal storytellers Kurt Busiek and George Perez and their run on the Avengers. Knowing all who have worked with these characters before me and the history of Squadron Supreme made this opportunity truly special,” Veregge said. “Being able to share their stories in the same spirit and voice as my ancestors for today’s audience is not only an honor as a Native American storyteller, but as a comic book fan as well.”
Heroes Reborn kicks off on May 5th, 2021.
