There was a time, not so long ago, when Venom was a character that only really interacted with Spider-Man and the NYC crew. But lately, between the Flash Thompson Venom joining the Guardians of the Galaxy, or Venom being part of the ‘Marvel NOW!’ Thunderbolts, it seems like he’s popping up in different sectors of the Marvel Universe. That has continued with ‘Poison X,’ a crossover between “X-Men Blue” and “Venom,” written by Cullen Bunn, with most of the art of Edgar Salazar. We are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at “Venom” #163, the fifth and final chapter of ‘Poison X,’ which hits stores on Wednesday, March 7, and features art from the aformentioned Salazar.
