Donnie Cates and Ryan Stegman will pen the all new adventures of everyone’s favorite symbiote.
Venom of course, has a film starring Tom Hardy coming out in October, meaning giving his comic a big push in the run-up is a sound idea. Cates and Stegman enthused to Comicbook.com/
“It’s unlike any foe Eddie, or the Symbiote has ever faced,” Stegman tells ComicBook.com of this emerging evil. “It’s something that’s incredibly old, and unbelievably powerful with ties to not only the symbiote’s dark past but the Marvel Universe itself. This is a horror story thousands of years in the making.”
“That being said, this is a story that you can jump RIGHT into with our first issue,” Stegman says. “If you’ve ever wanted to come read about Eddie Brock and his handsome fanged friend, Venom #1 in May is the PERFECT jumping on point!”
