Marvel teases ‘King in Black’ #2 with new key art

The new ‘King in Black’ key art by Brett Booth features most of your favorite Marvel heroes.

The second issue of Marvel’s latest big event King in Black comes out tomorrow and to tease it a little more they’ve got some new key art to show off.

“All of the Marvel characters think that they are prepared for this. They think that they have plan. The thing is, they are so not ready for it,” writer Donny Cates teased in a press release sent to AIPT. “Captain America, Iron Man, every single X-Men team, it’s all hands on deck. What’s even more exciting is that none of you, at home – none of you are going to be ready for it either. It all comes down to the King in Black.”

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Check out the art by Brett Booth and Nolan Woodard below!

New York, NY— December 22, 2020 — One of the most highly anticipated conflicts in Marvel Comics history arrived earlier this month as Knull, the King in Black and Dark Lord of the symbiotes, descended upon Earth in superstar creative duo Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman’s KING IN BLACK #1! But he did not arrive unopposed. As Knull and his legion of symbiote dragons rained terror and destruction upon the world, all of Marvel’s greatest heroes rose up in defense and learned firsthand just how outmatched they were. After brutally taking down Venom, Knull enveloped the entire planet in a symbiote dome. Now, Earth’s heroes assemble to launch their next desperate move.

Get a taste of the pulse-pounding battle that’s in store for the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Spider-Man, Deadpool, and many others in with this breathtaking Key Art by Brett Booth!

“All of the Marvel characters think that they are prepared for this. They think that they have plan. The thing is, they are so not ready for it,” writer Donny Cates teases. “Captain America, Iron Man, every single X-Men team, it’s all hands on deck. What’s even more exciting is that none of you, at home – none of you are going to be ready for it either. It all comes down to the King in Black.”

The symbiote army’s power is growing, Marvel’s heroes are defeated, and Knull’s reign has only just begun. See what happens next in KING IN BLACK #2, available TOMORROW in comic shops and on the Marvel Comics App!
