Some of today's Marvel Comics feature a full checklist for The King In Black event. And while some crossover events state that you don't have to buy every tie-in to enjoy the experience, The King In Black appears to have been learning from X OF Swords and is demanding the opposite.
So that's you told. Even the Handbook, apparently. Though saying that, the X Of Swords handbook is really, really good. Let's break that down into copy-and-pasteable text.

Here's how Marvel are defining the latest:
The long-dreaded arrival of Knull, god of the symbiotes, is almost at hand. Backed by a massive army of symbiotic monsters, the terrifying new villain poses a threat unlike any the Marvel Universe has ever seen. The latest chapter in writer Donny Cates and artist Ryan Stegman's radical reshaping of the Venom mythos, KING IN BLACK is an event years in the making that will change everything you thought you knew about symbiotes.
