Marvel Comics has announced a cool new event surrounding Venom with King in Black which pits the god of the symbiotes, Knull, versus the Marvel Universe.
Writer Donny Cates, known for Silver Surfer: Black, Thor, Thanos, Guardians of the Galaxy and Cosmic Ghost Rider, and artist Ryan Stegman, known for Venom and Absolute Carnage, explained the upcoming event, which takes place after the recent events of Absolute Carnage.
“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,” said 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,” said Stegman. “We have some new designs that we’ll be unveiling throughout the series that are really cool and really creepy.”
Marvel.com describes the book as: ” 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.”
