KING IN BLACK EXPANDS IN DECEMBER

This December, the next chapter in the epic Venom saga from writer Donny Cates and artist Ryan Stegman continues in King in Black. Knull, the god of symbiotes is heading to Earth with a massive army of monsters at his command. Marvel doesn't just do a single book for an event, of course. There are a few tie-ins on the way, which the publisher has revealed.

"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,” Cates promised in a recent video announcement. “I still can’t believe that Marvel is letting us go as dark and scary as we’re going.”

Check out the details of King in Black and its first few tie-ins (because I'm sure there will be more) below.

Spinning out of the KING IN BLACK epic comes a dark, chilling story of the birth of Atlantis’s greatest villains. The players: Namor, Lady Dorma of Atlantis, the outsider Attuma — all still in their teen years — and The Swift Riders, the Atlantean Empire’s greatest heroes. It begins with alliances and possibility, as Attuma’s people may join the Empire…but what lies ahead is tragedy, betrayal, and the unleashing of dangerous, deadly magics. A deep dive into Marvel history…and the birth of a threat that will only grow in menace across time.
