As a long-time player of Marvel SNAP, who was even featured once by Forbes for a strategy I shared about a combo within the game, I’m very familiar with how much branding the game provided for the company. When this game was released (and even now), it was pretty huge for Marvel comics. The card artwork introduced to A LOT of video game enthusiasts the fantastic work of several Marvel comic book artists for the first time to gamers.

Popular collector sets featured in the game showcased some stunning artwork and covers by talents such as Rian Gonzalez, Dan Hipp, Alex Ross, Jim Lee, Luca Claretti, Kim Jacinto, Peach Momoko, and Artgerm.
