Venom gets the variant cover treatment for 30th anniversary

I think it’s probably safe to call Venom a classic Spider-Man villain at this point. And since he’s been around for three decades, Marvel is prepped to celebrate with some variant covers.

Venomous variations

I can remember when Venom was considered “new”, and that’s a tag that lasted a shockingly long time. Now though, I think it’d be a stretch. He’s been around since 1989 after all, and wow has the big guy had some big moments in that time.

Interestingly enough, that’s the theme of this spread of Marvel variant covers. Celebrating 30 years of Venom, Marvel has crafted this set of variants to showcase the sometime villain’s biggest and best highlights.

There’ll be 20 of these in all, and each one will feature either new talent or a classic Marvel illustrator. You’ll find the likes of “Mark Bagley, Mike Perkins, Francesco Francavilla, Ron Lim, Inhyuk Lee and more” included.

Here’s the issues that you’ll want to keep an eye out for this May:
