Last year, Bleeding Cool reported that Donny Cates was promoting Venom #22, out tomorrow, as something that would change things.
I'm so happy you all like the start of Venom Island in issue 21 but I NEED you to understand something…
Issue 22 is the craziest issue of Venom I've ever written. It's horrifying. And it will change Eddie Brock's life forever.
You've been warned.

After all, Donny does have his charms… as his Editor-In-Chief notes.
Because I'm so pretty and charming.

Well, Bleeding Cool can confirm that Donny Cates has a point, So much so that the solicited covers for Venom #23 and #24…
…may even have to be redrawn before publication. Here's the solicitation for #22… not that you'll learn anything from that.
