If there's one thing Marvel reader can't get enough of, it's symbiote! Okay, well, maybe not one thing. Marvel readers also can't get enough variant covers, books starring Spider-Man or associated Spider-people, Wolverine guest appearances, super-mega-crossover events, number one issue relaunches, and stories where the Marvel Universe is shaken to its foundations leaving nothing ever the same again. But after that, the thing they can't get enough of is symboites. Well, good news, symbiotebronies! The Sleeper symbiote find a new host and re-debut as Sleeper Agent in Venom #11, coming from the House of Ideas in August.
From the press release:
Writers Al Ewing and Ram V and artist Bryan Hitch's acclaimed run on VENOM continues to reshape the symbiote mythos in each explosive issue! And luckily for VENOM fans, the trio of superstar creators have no plans to slow down as the ongoing series enters its' third terrifying arc this August in VENOM #11.
Kicking off a three-part story called "VENOMWORLD," Eddie and Dylan Brock's journey takes a sharp turn as they deal with the shocking revelations of VENOM #10. Dylan is still at the mercy of Bedlam, while Eddie battles his way across the cosmos, discovering more about the symbiotes than ever before. And the hits keep coming as the Sleeper symbiote joins the fray with a deadly new look…
In a shocking twist, Marvel got the artist, not the writer, to provide the obligatory press release quote. Bryan Hitch says of Sleeper Agent's debut in Venom #11:
Working on VENOM has been a surprise, honestly. I wasn't really familiar with the symbiote world before I drew the first pages of issue #1, but it's been a hugely entertaining world to explore. Al and Ram's story (and it is a massive, long-form epic) has given me so many different threads to play with from personal drama and urban action to all of space and time."
I had to learn to draw cats for this book, not just symbiotes, and Sleeper has become a favorite one to play with. He hasn't seen too much, but that's about to change, as he's getting serious and upping his game. He's bringing a new element and a new player into the symbiote world with Sleeper Agent. Chemical and biological warfare. This cover reveal is really only the first phase of Sleeper Agent's look. They are symbiotes, after all…
Venom #11 hits stores in August.
