Toldja-ish. Todd McFarlane's 1:1000 Variant Cover To Venom #1 (UPDATE)

Okay, so it was more of a guess. But Bleeding Cool was the first to tell you about the secret artist variant cover, available to every store that orders a thousand copies of the new Venom #1.

And, as we guessed, it's by Venom co-creator Todd McFarlane who hasn't contributed to a Marvel comic book since leaving Spider-Man to form Image Comics in the early nineties….


And he still hasn't. This is just some of his earliest work from Amazing Spider-Man recoloured…

This November, Venom is back and he's badder than ever! As creators Mike Costa and Gerardo Sandoval bring the sinister symbiote into Marvel NOW!, celebrate this exciting launch with a variant cover by legendary artist Todd McFarlane (AUG168725)! Continuing our eye-popping tradition of remastered and recolored marvelous moments comes an iconic instant classic! Relive Eddie Brock's first full appearance as Venom – masterfully recolored by superstar colorist Richard Isanove. As the Venom symbiote returns to the Big Apple, it's time for a new Venom. No more Flash Thompson, no more "Agent of the Cosmos". But who's the one wearing the costume this time? More importantly – who's in control? One thing is certain – Venom is back, and it's good to be bad….

Uncover the mystery in the explosive first issue, VENOM #1 – coming to comic shops and digital devices this November!
