This Marvel variant cover was designed by Denys Cowan (pencils), Bill Sienkiewicz (inks) and Chris Sotomayor (colors) and recasts Contest of Champions as GZA’s cover art for the classic Liquid Swords album. The critically acclaimed album was released in November 1995 and was mostly done within a year at fellow Wu-Tang Clan member and producer RZA’s basement studio in Staten Island. Liquid Swords features guest appearances from the entire Wu-Tang Clan and has become one of the most influential hip-hop albums of all time. The standard Marvel edition features the hip-hop variant cover and Liquid Swords on limited edition 2LP seaglass vinyl.
