The God Of Symbiotes Invades The Marvel Universe This December

This December, Knull will invade the Marvel Universe with Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman’s next installment of their take on Venom, KING IN BLACK. This next chapter promises an epic showdown between a devastating enemy and the likes of the Avengers, the X-Men and the current Venom, Eddie Brock.

According to Venom series writer Donny Cates, “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.” It’s no surprise Cates would invoke the phrase “heavy metal” given the explosive momentum Marvel competitor, DC Comics, has been able to leverage coming out of the Coronavirus lockdown with their event – DARK KNIGHTS: DEATH METAL. A momentum Marvel has so far been unable to match with it’s current releases. Perhaps KING IN BLACK  will give Marvel just the boost it needs.

Check out the full press release and preview trailer from Marvel below.

“One of the things I’m most proud of in this series… is the creation of the character Knull,” Stegman says. “We have some new designs that we’ll be unveiling throughout the series that are really cool and really creepy.”
