From Marvel Comics—

Phoenix rises again! And Marvel is celebrating with a series of connecting variant covers from Brazilian artist Victor Hugo, who is bringing his spectacular 3D art to the covers of one of Marvel’s most anticipated new series! Starting this January, Hugo’s art will appear on JEAN GREY #11 as well as issues #2-5 of PHOENIX RESURRECTION, each variant cover coming together to form a connecting portrait of the X-Men’s beloved mutant.

“I see this project as a milestone in my life,” said Hugo, who over the past 12 years has worked for Walt Disney Animation Studios, Blur Studios, and more. “I’m a 3D artist and even being a huge Marvel fan, I know that it’s definitely not common for publishers to request 3D illustrations for cover art, so not even in my coolest dreams did I think that someday I would be invited to do a Marvel comic book cover! The Phoenix Force is definitely the coolest thing about Jean, but what I really love about her is her evolution and changes through the years. It was an awesome experience being able to portray all the phases in a single artwork.”

A stalwart Marvel fan, Hugo is excited to be adding his stamp to the long history of artists who have drawn the hero. “I love to portray moments and appealing characters,” he continued. “I believe that having the chance to portray Jean’s key life moments was a great opportunity to express one thing that I like the most about comics: the feeling of adventure! We have action and drama, but the thing that I like the most about X-Men is their adventures and how characters evolve with that, and that’s what I wanted to focus on.”

Don’t miss your chance to be a part of the magic with Marvel’s connecting Phoenix variant covers this January!
