Zach Story 10/02/2012 ZDONOTUSE

A few months ago we reported on some of Marvel‘s alternate covers increasing Breast Cancer Awareness during the month of October. More than just variant covers though, Marvel has partnered with Susan G. Komen for the Cure to provide a one-page insert in each issue this month providing additional education and information on how to prevent breast cancer. That’s right, the Avengers and the X-Men have stopped fighting each other long enough to take on a real world villain. Marvel is showcasing some new covers. Which one is your favorite? Here’s the press release:

    Very unique idea of creating comic covers for the social issue.It is rather very smart because this will lead to cover all the age groups for sending the message of breast cancer treatment.
