New York, NY— November 9, 2020 — The war against Knull erupts on December 2nd in KING IN BLACK #1, the shocking new chapter in Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman’s game-changing run on Venom. In February, Knull’s influence continues to spread, ensnaring the entire planet in the darkness of his reign. Outgunned and outmanned, the heroes of the Marvel Universe will unite like never before. Will the combined force of Eddie Brock, the Avengers, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and more be enough to turn the tide of this devastating conflict? Find out in February’s KING IN BLACK #4 as well as newly announced King in Black one-shots and tie-ins coming your way!
Steve Rogers is joined by Winter Soldier and Falcon in a brutal brawl against Knull’s forces in the streets of New York City in writer Danny Lore and artist Mirko Colak’s KING IN BLACK: CAPTAIN AMERICA. Kate Pryde leads the Marauders in a dangerous rescue mission on the high seas in writer Gerry Duggan and artist Luke Ross’ KING IN BLACK: MARAUDERS! Wakanda will need its king more than ever when Knull sets his sights on it in KING IN BLACK: BLACK PANTHER by writer Geoffrey Thorne and artist Germán Peralta. The Fantastic Four and the Unseen (AKA Nick Fury) enter the fray in FANTASTIC FOUR #29 by writer Dan Slott and artist Ze Carlos.
“The King in Black is very much an all-hands on deck, end of the world, omega-level threat. It’s going to bring together some allies that will have to put aside some ancient beefs and problems in order to come together,” Donny Cates told Comic Book Resources in a recent interview. “I can’t wait for everybody to read issue #1 and see just how front and center Krakoa is! I have to give enormous props to Jonathan Hickman and the entire team. I also have to give them to Dan Slott, Jason, Aaron, and Gerry Duggan who kind of pulled double duty with his work on the X-Titles and the other books he writes. Also to Chip Zdarsky, and really everyone at Marvel.”
