The cat’s out of the bag with March’s “Marvel Meow” variant covers from Nao Fuji

I will never apologize for making a stupid pun in a headline.

This March, Marvel will feature variant covers from Japanese artist Nao Fuji.  The kicker?  They all feature cats. 

That makes a weird type of sense.  Back in the day, it was said that putting a gorilla on a comic cover would boost sales, so of course gorillas can be found on tons of Silver Age comic covers.  In the age of the internet, what is the cat if not the new gorilla?

Check out the details below.
