Now the publisher has revealed even more Ross Timeless variant covers for release along with their October 2020 offerings. The fourteen new covers will accompany issues of Daredevil, Amazing Spider-Man, X-Men, Shang Chi, and many more.

“Nobody else embodies the term Timeless quite as well as Alex does,” Executive Editor Tom Brevoort told ComicBook.com last month. “His work makes people relate to these fantastical characters in an entirely new way–they become plausible and real without giving up their larger-than-life qualities in the process. He’s also just about the hardest-working guy in the business–his output, given its quality, is truly staggering.”
Stay tuned to Marvel next week for a rare glimpse inside Alex Ross’s incredible creative process and see how his timeless imagery was made into a magnificent mural in Marvel’s NYC offices!
