On August 25th, Marvel will celebrate its most legendary Asian superheroes in Marvel’s Voices: Identity #1.

This issue also boasts a series of exciting new variant covers by a lineup of artists including Peach Momoko’s spellbinding take on Nico Minoru, a depiction of Marvel’s greatest fighter by InHyuk Lee, a celebration of some of mutantkind’s greatest stars by Uncanny X-Men artist Philip Tan, and more.

“It’s unreal to me that one of Marvel’s first Asian superheroes, Jimmy Woo, was first introduced in 1956. He predates the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, and the X-Men,” Editor Darren Shan said. “It just goes to show that Asians have been an integral part of Marvel’s history, both on the page and behind it. So I’m incredibly excited to celebrate that with all these amazing creators, new and established, featuring some of Marvel’s greatest (and dare I say it, best) super heroes!”

Check out all six covers now and look for Marvel’s Voices: Identity #1when it hits stands on August 25th, 2021. FOC is this coming Monday, August 2, so make sure you let your local shop know if you want any, or all, of these covers in your pull box.
