It’s been over three decades since Venom first swung into Spider-Man’s life. Marvel Comics hasn’t forgotten, and has some big stuff planned.
Well, if you were thinking that the tidal wave of “Venom” was coming to a close any time soon, we were mistaken. While the Marvel Comics U has been the backdrop for a massive amount of Venom-themed events over the last few years, 2023 will see even more.
The publisher has revealed that there will be two big Venom events this year, including both Extreme Venomverse and Death of the Venomverse. And much like the “Spider” event books that it takes its designation from, you can expect to see all kinds of off the wall stuff in the pages of both.
It all starts with Extreme Venomverse, a five part series that’ll be landing this May.
Launching in May, EXTREME VENOMVERSE will take fans to uncharted corners of the hive in brand-new stories by an all-star lineup of talent! In the same spirit as the recent hit series, Edge of Spider-Verse, this landmark new series will feature jaw-dropping turning points for iconic characters like Eddie Brock and Dylan Brock and see never-before-seen Venoms bear their fangs for the very first time! But this thrilling tour through the Marvel multiverse is headed towards an explosive destination and whether your favorite new symbiotes will survive this summertime saga remains to be seen…Marvel Comics press release
So what’s so weird about it? Well, the first issue will have a trio of stories packed into it, including:
- Comics superstars Ryan North and Paulo Siqueira put a fresh and exciting spin on a story you may be familiar with…starring Eddie Brock as…SPIDER-MAN?!
- Rising star Mirka Andolfo shows you a side of the whole Brock family you NEVER thought you’d see!
- And one of the best writer/artists in the industry today, Leonardo Romero, reimagines Venom as a Samurai!
Catch Extreme Venomverse #1 (of 5) this May the 10th.
