Marvel Comics continues to pay homage to hip-hop with its latest set of variants, debuting exclusively on Billboard. Last October, the comic powerhouse began rolling out several covers that saluted iconic hip-hop albums. 

For their forthcoming releases, Marvel grabs inspiration from Nas' 2012 album Life is Good for The Amazing Spider-Man, Dr. Dre's 2015 quasi-soundtrack Compton for Black Panther: World of Wakanda and Missy Elliott's 2002 gem Under Construction for Invincible Iron-Man.

See the latest covers below before they hit local comic shops in November. Stans can also scope them out via comicshoplocator.com.
