Marvel Reveals Civil War II Connecting Variant Covers


Marvel has enlisted renowned artist Kim Jung Gi to create a series of inter-connecting variant covers for this May’s Civil War II.

It is looking more and more like Marvel is taking no chances when it comes to ensuring that every comic book fan reads the forthcoming mega-event Civil War II.

And who can blame them? Sure, Captain America: Civil War will be in theaters and the hype machine is in overdrive getting the word out about the spiritual successor to the original Civil War. But DC has a little thing called Rebirth hitting stores at the same time, and the last time DC rebooted their universe, Marvel took in on the chin for months.

So to prevent a repeat of that, Marvel is pulling out all the stops, which include any number of variant covers for the series.

The latest is a series of inter-connecting variants by South Korean artist Kim Jung Gi. Working in black and white, he has garnered quite a following online and is known for his ability to visualize a drawing even before he has put pencil to paper. His work on the covers for Civil War II will mark his Marvel debut and should help his fanbase grow even more.

The piece he has done for the covers of Civil War II really is a thing of beauty, incredibly detailed and practically burning at the seams with characters. Check out the hyper-detailed piece below:

The art will be broken up and a section will be used starting with Civil War #0 in May and will run through the entire miniseries until you can take all eight covers and create the image above.

Marvel has also released a video that shows how Kim Jung Gi created the piece and his work style.

Civil War II sees the heroes of the Marvel Universe divided with Iron Man on one side and Captain Marvel on the other. At the center of the conflict is a new power that could change everything.

"The Marvel Universe is at a crossroads. A new power has emerged, one that can predict the future —for good or ill — and the heroes of the Marvel Universe are faced with a choice: Wield the power of “predictive justice” to change the future as they see fit, or reject it and allow tomorrow to unfold unaltered."
