Marvel is getting monstrous this October with 26 variant covers featuring some of the finest creation of the true King of Monsters, Jack Kirby. Each cover features a brand new rendition of a classic Kirby monster by one of the finest artists in today's industry, and we have the exclusive reveal on four of the best.

Xemnu the Titan is easily the masterpiece of all Marvel monsters; here he's hypnotically brought to life by Dan Brereton for the cover of Contest of Champions #1. Phil Noto offers a chilling take on Black Panther monster The Yeti for Extraordinary X-Men #2, and Marguerite Sauvage gets cute with a newt on the cover of Spider-Man 2099 #2. James Stokoe rounds out our exclusive selection with his noodle-headed alien gambler Poker Face for the cover of SHIELD #1. Check out the covers below!
