Despite being somewhat outside of his usual Spider-Man setting for the past few years, a lot of interesting stuff has been happening with Venom. In this new series, from Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman, two of the brightest stars in Marvel’s creative lineup, Marvel promises a storyline ‘a thousand years in making,’ which sounds bombastic and a little silly – in other words, perfect for Venom. We are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at the debut issue, which hits stores on May 9th.
