“I’m very proud to draw these eight ASIAN AMERICAN AND PACIFIC ISLANDER HERITAGE VARIANT COVERS showing the iconic Asian heroes of the Marvel universe,” Lee said. “Silk, Ms. Marvel, Psylocke, Shang-Chi… I love all these heroes so much and since I’m an illustrator and character designer, I proposed to renovate their outfits in a modern or tech-wear style, and Marvel liked my suggestion. When Emily Newcomen asked me about these covers, I had to accept despite my busy schedule because it was so meaningful. I’ve been working with Marvel for 10 years now and I’m happy to say we can always have fun working together.”
