Yesterday we told you that Donny Cates was to write Venom for his 30th anniversary year. And now Marvel PR have given the exclusive reveal to Comic Book: a new Venom #1 by Cates and Ryan Stegman for Marvel Fresh Start in May 2018.
Ah, I see. Yeah, look. VENOM is maybe my favorite Marvel character ever, and I would LOVE to write him someday. Honestly that'd be a dream come true.
But sadly, this is just a rumor. And an odd one at that.
BUT stay tuned for a cool announcement this week about my next thing! https://t.co/IUGdk3k0la
