In 2020, the French publishing house Ki-oon started an astounding project to say the least by commissioning variant cover of My Hero Academia to the most influential artists of American comics. For the fourth round of this initiative, the legendary Joe Madureira was called.
Kohei Horikoshi has never hidden his passion for pop culture. Big fan Marvel, in the course of My Hero Academia has left clear references to Spider-Man. This love is reciprocated by the House of Ideas, which in Deadpool: Samurai, the manga in collaboration with Shueisha, brought the chatty mercenary to meet All Might.
The story between My Hero Academia and Marvel continues thanks to the Ki-oon project. For the variant cover of the 34th volume of My Hero Academia, the French publisher has commissioned Joe Madureira, one of the biggest names in American comics. We remind you that the first variant cover of My Hero Academia is made by Ryan Stegman, artist of Venom and Spider-Man.
The career of Joe Madureira in Marvel has resulted in such illustrious series as Deadpool, Uncanny X-Men, and The Avenging Spider-Man. Not only that, the artist has also made his contribution to the Darksiders video game series. This time, Madureira has made a fantastic artwork in which we see a sadist Katsuki Bakugo ready to blow up the villain army. What do you think of Kacchan with the art style of the Marvel artist? Also for Ki-oon, a DC Comics artist previously also designed a cover of My Hero Academia.
