Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman brings Symbiote Daddy Knull to Earth in King in Black Event
Marvel is showcasing what happens to Earth when it gets invaded by the ‘daddy’ of the symbiotes themselves, Knull in a brand new event called King in Black.
I’m going to assume that this is going to be easy to get into much like how Absolute Carnage was a pretty straight story.
Here’s what Marvel.com wrote about this new event:
This December, the entire Marvel Universe braces itself for KING IN BLACK, the latest installment in writer Donny Cates and artist Ryan Stegman’s revolutionary take on the Venom mythos. Knull is coming, and when he arrives, everyone from the Avengers to the X-Men will learn just how unprepared they are to face off against the God of the Symbiotes. Everything in Cates and Stegman’s landmark run on VENOM has led up to this monumental story, and readers will finally witness Eddie Brock’s climatic standoff with one of Marvel’s most terrifying villains.
With each mind-bending twist and turn, the stakes will be raised like never before as KING IN BLACK flips everything you thought you knew about Venom and the world of the symbiotes upside down and inside out. Learn more in the special video announcement from the mastermind creative team, and stay tuned for more news about what to expect when KING IN BLACK lands later this year!
“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,” promises Cates. “I still can’t believe that Marvel is letting us go as dark and scary as we’re going.”
“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.”
Ready or not, don’t miss KING IN BLACK #1 when it hits stands this December!
This should be an exciting read plus they could actually tie up with other books including Avengers and X-Men and even the Hulk who figured in Absolute Carnage.
