A new superstar creative team will take the reins of Venom starting next month. Teaming up with artist Bryan Hitch, mastermind writers Ram V and Al Ewing are set to take the symbiote mythos to the next level with thrilling new developments for father son pair Eddie and Dylan Brock. Each writer will lend their talents to a different character with Ewing taking us beyond the stars with Eddie in his new role as the “King in Black,” and Ram V bringing us back to earth penning Dylan’s beginnings as a super hero. Together, the two writer’s sagas will intertwine and impact one another to create a singular and epic new vision.
In December’s Venom #3, Ram V will spotlight the early struggles of Dylan’s burgeoning career as a Marvel super hero. As everything Dylan Brock has come to know and love unravels around him, he is beginning to realize a terrible truth: The Venom symbiote is not a harmless pet, no matter how much it pretends to be one. It’s an alien. A dangerous, violent, often bloodthirsty alien. Whatever bond it had with Dylan’s father, Eddie Brock, special as it may have been…is gone. And Dylan might be soon too.
Check out the cover for December’s Venom #3 below and be there for the beginning of a new age of symbiotes when Ram V, Al Ewing, and Bryan Hitch take over in Venom #1 on October 13th!
