David Michelinie returns to Venom with ‘Venom: Lethal Protector’ #1

In the spirit of hit titles like X-MEN LEGENDS and MAESTRO, explore an earlier era for Venom.

Press Release

Marvel Comics is adding a new Venom series to the mix in March with Venom: Lethal Protector from Venom co-creator David Michelinie. The five-issue series will feature Ivan Fiorelli on art and will take place in an earlier era for Venom similar to the X-Men Legends line of comics. It’s out in comic book shops on March 23, 2022.

“Getting to do a multi-issue story with the original Venom was like sitting down to dinner with an old friend–who wants to eat your brain for dessert!” Michelinie said. “It was both fun and exciting, and I hope people enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.”

So what’s Venom: Lethal Protector about?

Before Carnage and space gods, clones and toxins, and the revelation that he was a father, Eddie Brock was a down-on-his-luck reporter who had tried to take his own life and been saved by an extraterrestrial alien. In the spirit of hit titles like X-MEN LEGENDS and MAESTRO, explore an earlier era of Marvel Comics for an all-new, horrifying tale that not only revisits the wicked web-slinger’s past, but hints at what’s to come in his future!
