In honour of the 35th anniversary of Venom, Marvel Comics is planning to kick off the "Summer of Symbiotes," a season-long celebration of all things symbiote including new titles, characters, and more.
We've already had our first taste of the symbiote insanity that awaits in a teaser that heralded the foreboding "Death of Venomverse." However, before that epic begins, all-new symbiote characters will run wild in a Multiverse-spanning series called Extreme Venomverse.
Launching in May, it will take fans to uncharted corners of the hive with brand-new stories by an all-star lineup of talent.
In the same spirit as the hit series, Edge of Spider-Verse, this landmark new series will feature jaw-dropping turning points for iconic characters like Eddie Brock and Dylan Brock and see never-before-seen Venoms bear their fangs for the very first time.
However, with these epic adventures spiralling towards the explosive "Death of Venomverse," whether your favourite new symbiotes will survive this summertime saga remains to be seen!
Today, we have a taste of the stories that await in June's Extreme Venomverse #3.
- Writer Taran Killam and artist Rod Reis unite to pay a visit to the Old West and introduce readers to an all-new Madame Venom – a femme fatale who'll leave even the roughest and toughest outlaws shaking in their boots!
- Superstar writer Jed MacKay and Marvel newcomer Danny Earls team up to tell a tale as old as time – literally! Together, they'll introduce a brand-new, prehistoric and primal vision of Venom!
- The return of Venom Spaceknight! But if he's your favourite Venom ever, keep your fingers crossed – because not every Venom is making it out of this saga alive.
- Plus another round of Daily Bugle funnies from comics legend Ty Templeton – this time with a symbiotic spin!
