Run the Jewels Get Their Own Marvel Comic Book Covers
. (Radio.com) Run the Jewels have been a lot of things lately: Successful rappers. Conan show music guests. Pitchfork album of the year winners. Steven Seagal fan fiction authors. We even honored them.
And, their latest accomplishment might be their most unexpected yet: comic book inspirations. Marvel is paying homage to Killer Mike and El-P with two comic book covers for their already established titles: Deadpool and Howard the Duck.
On the Deadpool cover, the signature gun and fist hands are displayed, but as those of Big Marvel Bad Guy Thanos and Deadpool. The art is by Skottie Young and appears on issue number 45.
For Howard the Duck issue number 2 (it's a reboot), the artwork of Mahmud Asrar depicts the titular duck with Guardians of the Galaxy's Rocket Raccoon, with both making the same fun and fist gestures. Read more here.
