Venom Takes Center Stage in Marvel’s ‘King in Black’ Event Series in December

Writer Donny Cates and artist Ryan Stegman’s continue their original take on Venom, symbiotes, and new arch villain Knull, the god of symbiotes, this December with the creepy King in Black series.

Venom will be joined by the vast majority of the Marvel Universe as they face a new cosmic level threat in the form of Knull, who first appeared in Cates and Stegman’s Venom #3 in August of 2018.

According to, Cates was surprised when the company allowed him to take the series in a dark, directions saying “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.”

Stegman also promised “..some new designs (for Knull) that we’ll be unveiling throughout the series that are really cool and really creepy.”

King in Black #1 will be released in December 2020. Before then, be sure to catch up on the entire Venom saga in digital, comic book, or graphic novel form.
