Get Ready for King in Black with Free Venom and Absolute Carnage Comics on Marvel Unlimited

Marvel Unlimited King in Black

Starting today, Marvel Unlimited is preparing for the 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.

To read these free issues, fans only need to download the Marvel Unlimited app, available on iPhoneiPad and select Android devices, and dive right in. Venom #1-5 (2018) and Absolute Carnage #1-2 (2019) will be available today through December 14. Download the app and enjoy these issues today!

Before King in Black #1 lands in comic shops December 2, read the entire history of Knull, God of Symbiotes, and our recommended prelude reading, all on Marvel Unlimited. 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!

Venom! Hot Toys Unveils Their Latest Movie Masterpiece Figure

Hot Toys Venom

Much requested, and eagerly awaited – this sinister symbiote has been a fan-favorite request for some time. Now, Hot Toys has unveiled an all-new screen accurate Venom sixth-scale figure inspired by the movie of the same name.

Modeled after the appearance of Venom from the 2018 movie, this 38cm tall vinyl figure features a highly detailed sculpt, with textured skin and black polarized paint application – creating a glistening sheen that eerily catches the light to imitate Venom’s alien flesh.

On my world, I’m pretty much a loser. Kind of like you, Eddie. But here on Earth, together, perhaps we could be something more.

– Venom

The Hot Toys Venom sixth scale figure features:

  • A highly detailed likeness of Venom from the movie of the same name
  • Newly developed head sculpt with a gruesome fanged mouth and three interchangeable long tongues
  • An interchangeable grinning head sculpt
  • A newly developed vinyl body with 24+ points of articulation
  • Multiple interchangeable hands for a variety of posing and display options
  • Multiple swap out weapons, including a Symbiote sickle right hand, a symbiote attacking left hand, and Riot’s symbiote sword
  • Multiple Symbiote accessories (Venom maw and grinning head version) wired to attach to the figure’s back
  • A specially designed figure base with movie logo, character name plate and graphic card
  • Moreover, a limited Special Edition version of Venom (available via Sideshow) comes with an additional Venom maw with Symbiote accessory!
