Marvel to release variant covers for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Jun 21, 2016

Marvel Comics will promote Prostate Cancer Awareness Month this September with 5 variant covers. The variant covers will feature the Marvel heroes in blue colored costumes to bring awareness, as it is the official color of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

David Gabriel, SVP Sales & Marketing at Marvel, stated in an official press release, “Working with The American Cancer Society, we learned that more than 2 million men in the US count themselves as prostate cancer survivors and it’s an honor to continue bringing awareness to further increase the survival rate. We hope that all our fans take a moment during the month of September to educate themselves, as well as their loved ones, on how they can work with their healthcare provider on how to combat this disease.”

Dr. Richard Wender, Chief Cander Control Officer for the American Cancer Society added, “The American Cancer Society is honored to be invited to work with Marvel to raise awareness of prostate cancer this September. This campaign will allow us to share critical information with Marvel fans on how to take positive action to ensure better health for both themselves and their loved ones.”
