Every single #1 that is tied to our current campaign, All-New Marvel Now!, will have one. So there will be about 55-60 covers. All-New Marvel Now! is a campaign where there are new #1s across the board – from Spider-Man to Squirrel Girl to stuff we haven’t announced yet, like Black Panther. What’s been released so far is just the head of the spear.
Alonso adds that the hip hop/comics crossover has been received enthusiastically:
These covers have been embraced by the hip hop community. Already on social media we have seen endorsements from DMC, Pete Rock, Posdnuos (De La Soul), The Pharcyde, and Killer Mike came out with perhaps the biggest of all endorsements. He’s a massive comic head and he was one of the first people to weigh in on this with his excitement.
Nas told Mass Appeal, “I grew up on Marvel Comics. They helped open my imagination, expanded my love for illustrated art, and even helped me with my writing. This is a dream in real life. Now my 6-year-old son is a huge Spider Man fan. He’s going to love this!”
