Marvel has revealed the creative team for their Free Comic Book Day Spider-Man/Venom issue: Donny Cates, Ryan Stegman, Tom Taylor, Saladin Ahmed, and Cory Smith. In a press release, they also revealed details on what the stories will be. For Taylor, Ahmed, and Smith, it will be a tale starring Miles Morales:
Everyone knows Miles Morales, who rose to fame in Marvel's acclaimed animated sensation Into The Spider-Verse – and with a second feature film arriving this year, Peter Parker will once again suit up to save the world with his web-slinging super powers! In a special FCBD story, creators Tom Taylor, Saladin Ahmed, and Cory Smith take these superstar heroes of the Spider-Verse in a shocking new direction, with a story that will build to one of Marvel's most fantastic and epic tales later this year!
And for Venom, Marvel really ramps up the hyperbole on Cates and Stegman's story, claiming it will set the stage for "one of the most fearsome events in the Marvel Universe."
And prepare for absolute terror within the pages of FCBD, as the Venom story by Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman sets the stage for what will become one of the most fearsome events in the Marvel Universe…
Nearly a year after the epic red-hot arc of the Red Goblin, Venom's dynamic creative team is bringing you a story that's been brewing since classic Spider-Man tales like Amazing Spider-Man #252, The Spectacular Spider-Man #90, Marvel Team-Up #141 – a saga so big and so absolutely action-packed, it will deliver the most dramatic story in all of FCBD history! Fans will be well aware by the summer of 2019 that "everyone is a target"…and this May, Marvel invites you to experience the threat for yourself!
The comic will be available for free to readers on Free Comic Book Day, but you'll pay later when you have to buy all the overpriced event minis and crossover tie-ins.
Additionally, Marvel notes:
Retailers should note that the FOC date has been extended, giving more time to place initial orders, for both of Marvel's FCBD books – because trust us, you WON'T want to be without these important and stunning issues!
