The Press Release:
This December, the entire Marvel Universe braces itself for KING IN BLACK, the latest installment in writer Donny Cates and artist Ryan Stegman’s revolutionary take on the Venom mythos. Knull is coming, and when he arrives, everyone from the Avengers to the X-Men will learn just how unprepared they are to face off against the God of the Symbiotes. Everything in Cates and Stegman’s landmark run on VENOM has led up to this monumental story, and readers will finally witness Eddie Brock’s climatic standoff with one of Marvel’s most terrifying villains.
With each mind-bending twist and turn, the stakes will be raised like never before as KING IN BLACK flips everything you thought you knew about Venom and the world of the symbiotes upside down and inside out. Learn more in a special video announcement from the mastermind creative team, and stay tuned for more news about what to expect when KING IN BLACK lands later this year!
“As far as event books go, this is the coolest, darkest, most heavy metal, Cthulhu dark horror thing I’ve ever been able to do,” promises Cates. “I still can’t believe that Marvel is letting us go as dark and scary as we’re going.”
“One of the things I’m most proud of in this series… is the creation of the character Knull,” Stegman says. “We have some new designs that we’ll be unveiling throughout the series that are really cool and really creepy.”
Ready or not, don’t miss KING IN BLACK #1 when it hits stands this December!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sounds interesting but after a few months with depleted funds, I am not too certain about just how many comic books I am going to be expanding my pull list with. At this rate I might be cutting a few off of the list. This new sinister character sounds like a fascinating villain so when this hits the racks I will definately peruse it before any other decision is made. Lately I have been waiting for the collected editions which is mostly a space concern more than anything else but I digress. It is great to be sharing some new comic book announcements again a bit more regularly so stay tuned to our Pop Culture region where I will continue to serve them up. See you next time and remember to stay safe, wear a mask and be socially distant whenever possible. At this point all of you should be experts at Grubhub and Seamless. Feel free to chime in down below with your thoughts on this upcoming series. I always love hearing from you on such matters.
