'Marvel Comics' #1 Is Rendered in Mosaic Form for the 'Marvel Comics' #1000 Shattered Variant Cover
Find out how to get this marvelous mosaic variant cover by Matthew DiMasi!
MARVEL COMICS #1000, the comic super-issue celebrating Marvel's 80th anniversary and hitting comic shops on Wednesday, August 28, is shaping up to be bigger by the day -- and a new variant cover is putting a shattering spin on the Marvel Comics legacy!
Matthew DiMasi is a "physician by day and an artist in the off hours" who has recreated over 20 comic covers in a mosaic style, including seven previous "shattered variants." DiMasi, a radiologist from Concord, New Hampshire, started creating broken tile mosaics of wildlife and more before embarking on his first comic-themed piece -- Captain America. "From there," he explained, "I’ve been honing the craft, using smaller pieces and new shapes and shading techniques in order to fully recreate a cover."
Here is DiMasi with the variant cover, which renders the original MARVEL COMICS #1 cover in mosaic form:
DiMasi is partnering with Josh Geppi from Diamond Galleries, where the issue with the variant cover will be sold as well as the original mosaic art. You can also pre-order your copy of MARVEL COMICS #1000 today!
You can watch a time lapse video of the making of the cover on DiMasi's Instagram page:
