Next month, three new Jeff the Landshark variant covers will arrive on a couple of different Marvel titles. As everyone’s favorite superhero sidekick will join the likes of the Captains, both Marvel and America, along with everyone’s favorite martial artist: Shang-Chi.
Drawn by the sensational Gurihiru, who are the winners of the 2020 Harvey Awards and the 2021 Eisner for their work on Superman Smashes the Klan, the women duo have also worked on the very successful Marvel Unlimited comic It’s Jeff with writer Kelly Thompson. It’s Jeff which is available right now on Marvel Unlimited.
Coincidentally, today also marks a brand new release of issues 13-15 that debut. You can see the trailer below.
For those unfamiliar, the It’s Jeff! comics features homages to many classic comics such as Peanuts. For a while, Jeff served as the companion of several different Marvel heroes such as Gwenpool, Deadpool, and in the recent run of the unlimited comics, Kate Bishop.
Much like Snoopy the dog, Jeff can’t actually speak except in unexplained utterances.
Alongside these issues, will come another familiar Marvel critter comic artist, Nao Fuji. As strange as this sounds, Nao Fuji may be Marvel’s greatest ever living cat artist, as the artist’s longstanding work features quite a few comic cat titles. Fuji’s line of art over on Marvel Meow, which is also an unlimited series about superhero cats, was also quite impressive. Enough that the folks over at Marvel brought them into the fold to get some Jeff the Shark variants as well.
It should be noted, Jeff’s recent appearance as an SDCC exclusive variant for Captain Marvel #39 was a major hit amongst fans. You can now get in on these three delightful new covers with Jeff the Landshark for Captain Marvel #42 and Shang-Chi and the Ten Rings #4. With one more big reveal to come next week!
