Marvel Unlimited King in Black

To celebrate the highly anticipated arrival of Marvel’s next epic comic event in December, Marvel Unlimited is unlocking access to the first five issues of Venom and the first two issues of Absolute Carnage – all FREE for fans everywhere, no subscription required.

For $60 your first year*, gain instant access to the comics and storylines that will get you ready for the next definitive chapter in Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman’s groundbreaking Venom run. Just use code HOLIDAY60 at checkout for this limited-time offer!

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!

After one of the pilot missions of the sym-soldier program, Rex Strickland was given a highly classified mission by Nick Fury himself. Where exactly did the ancient symbiote know as the Grendel come from?

Decades later, Carnage is on a rampage that will connect him to Knull the symbiote god and only Weapon H can stop him – by picking up where Rex left off!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

X-Men #1

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Absolute Carnage #4 (Marvel) – The event has been going strong and we really want to see where it all goes as it gets bigger and bigger as far as characters involved.

Crazy #1 (Marvel) – Celebrating 80 years of Marvel with this bit of a throwback comic.

Killswitch #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – The concept kind of sounds like Minority Report but the idea of clairvoyants looking to escape captivity still sounds interesting enough to check out.

Marked #1 (Image Comics) – A double-sized premiere about a secret order that protects the world by using their tattooed powers.

The Mask: I Pledge Allegiance to the Mask #1 (Dark Horse) – The Mask is back with what sounds like a timely political spin to it.

Metal Men #1 (DC Comics) – The classic characters get a twelve issue miniseries and picks up on Nth Metal and the Dark Multiverse. We’re intrigued.

Once & Future #3 (BOOM! Studios) – Kieron Gillen and Dan Mora have been killing it with this modern fantasy series. Great action and great characters with an interesting twist.

Robotech Remix #1 (Titan Comics) – The next step in the Robotech franchise. We’re excited to see what Brenden Fletcher does with it!

Something is Killing the Children #2 (BOOM! Studios) – Children dying in towns seems to be a big “genre” now but this series stands out with it’s delivery on the topic. Just a solid mix of mystery and horror.

Superman Smashes the Klan #1 (DC Comics) – We’ve wanted to read this since it was announced. The series is inspired by the famous 1940s radio serial.

Superman: Year One #3 (DC Comics) – Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s take on Superman wraps up and after a gonzo and cringey second issue…

Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Batman Knightfall #1 (DC Comics) – DC launches a new line of comics that takes major DC events and shows us the Dark Multiverse take on them. We’re excited for all of this.

Trees: Three Fates #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue returned us to the world of “Trees” but that aspect seems to not matter as much. Three Fates is more murder mystery than sci-fi weirdness but with a unique setting and solid pacing, it’s a must for those that enjoy that type of story.

X-Men #1 (Marvel) – Dawn of X launches!

ALL MY CODEXES LIVE IN TEXAS*

• *By “Texas” we mean “Deadpool’s spine.” Sorry, we just couldn’t NOT do that pun.
• With his potent combination of codexes from different symbiotes, the fate of the fight between good and evil lies within Deadpool!
• He’s…on the side of good, right? Honestly, sometimes it’s hard to tell. I mean, Spider-Man likes him, right? Kind of? That’s…something.
