A threat years in the making, Knull’s death march across the galaxy finally hits Earth in KING IN BLACK #1—with an army of thousands of symbiote dragons at his beck and call. Eddie Brock, AKA Venom, has seen firsthand the chaos that even one of Knull’s symbiotic monsters can wreak—will he survive an encounter with the God of the Abyss himself?
Now free on Marvel Unlimited, the first issues of VENOM begin a saga beneath the streets of New York, where an ancient and primordial evil has been awakened. With it, something equally evil has been awakened in that most wicked of web-slingers: Venom! The symbiote may still be a Lethal Protector of innocents in New York, but this never-before-seen threat could possibly force Venom to relinquish everything it holds dear including its human host.
In last year’s ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, Cates and Stegman put the Sinister Symbiote through hell again by resurrecting his ultimate foe: Cletus Kasady, AKA Carnage. And no one was safe. On a hunt for every Super Hero in the Marvel Universe who had ever worn a symbiote, Carnage and his cult set their eyes on some of our favorite Marvel heroes, including Spider-Man, Deadpool, and the Avengers!
Marvel Unlimited is your one-stop mobile and web destination for just about every Marvel comic you can get your hands on, with an ever-expanding library of over 28,000 Marvel Comics titles fully curated for every Marvel fan, collecting classic and newer stories just three months after they hit shelves.
