You’ve probably noticed that I have been doing a lot more comic book series launch announcements these days and you are correct in that since the aim is to stockpile our Pop Culture focuses all the more. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned why outside of because we love this stuff but also so we can share the variant covers and the occasionally provided interior art. With that I now share the scoop on the upcoming series “Symbiote Spider-Man”.
The Press Release:
Peter Parker. The black costume. The sinister secret called Venom. This April, comic legends Peter David (Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider) and Greg Land (Domino, Hunt for Wolverine) team up for an all-new tale that will explore Peter Parker just before he learned that his infamous black suit was an otherworldly evil symbiote!
“VENOM may be my day job and favorite Spider-Villain, but my favorite fictional character of all time is the one and only SPIDER-MAN – and far and away, this is one of the most exciting projects I’ve ever had the privilege of working on in my five and a half years here at Marvel,” said editor Devin Lewis. “This is an in-continuity story of Peter Parker A.K.A. The Amazing Spider-Man set in the weeks he was wearing the alien symbiote costume that would later become one of his greatest foes! And all your favorites are there – Black Cat, Aunt May, The Bugle. This is classic Spider-Action in the Mighty Marvel Manner!” Continue reading Marvel Announces “Symbiote Spider-Man” Series For April→
