Everyone Changes In King In Black #5 Finale Week (Spoilers)

Today's Venom #34 is a lead-up to both The King In Black #5 and June's Venom #35/200 (yes, you're going to have to wait two months for that one).

And might there be more dreams of horror to come?, and another family at war with itself? Let's go with a big yes.
