16 Jan Check Out Marvel’s Run the Jewels Comic Book Covers
Since Run the Jewels’ logo has made a shocking place for itself as an iconic symbol in music, it has been appropriated for the covers of two upcoming Marvel comic books. Howard the Duck #2 and Deadpool #45 will come with variant covers where Marvel characters are seen posing with the gun-and-fist logo, as Rolling Stone points out.
“I knew it was happening potentially,” Killer Mike told Rolling Stone, “but when it came all the way through, I was dancing around the room in my Polo underwear.”
Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso brought the project to life, who was inspired by the“Tag the Jewels” graffiti project and his son’s well thought love for the pair. According to El-P and Killer Mike, it was a natural fit. “Comic books are a part of the creative world of a kid in an urban environment,” El-P told Rolling Stone. “You might not admit it on record, but you talk to almost every rapper — we all grew up with that shit. I guarantee you like 80 percent of any rappers that you meet probably went through a large comic book phase.”
