             Writer Donny Cates teases Venom’s new adventure!

New York, NY—May 15, 2018—In the aftermath of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s collapse, an evil has been awakened beneath the streets of New York…bringing with it a threat that could have drastic consequences for the symbiote and Eddie Brock! Marvel exclusive writer Donny Cates (Doctor Strange, Thanos) and artist Ryan Stegman (Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows, Uncanny Avengers) have created a Venom adventure 1,000 years in the making, and it’s already receiving rave reviews among fans and critics, who are calling the first issue “a rich, haunting story that works on a variety of levels” (Multiversity Comics).

Now, Marvel is proud to present this behind-the-scenes look at VENOM, featuring Donny Cates and editor-in-chief C.B. Cebulski!

“In the past, Eddie and the symbiote have developed a very kindred friendship…and that was something I really wanted to explore,” explains Cates. Adds Cebulski, “there are certain stories in the Marvel Universe that redefine characters…and here, I think Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman are redefining and telling the Venom story for our generation.”
