The 2nd issue of THE KING IN BLACK arrives this Wednesday and it’s awesome!

The 2nd issue of KING IN BLACK roars into the shop this week for new comic day, and it’s an epic read!

This series is one of the best damn event lines Marvel has done in a minute, and we’re absolutely pumped for it this week!

One of the most highly anticipated Marvel books of the last couple of years has been Donny Cates’s epic Knull maxi story, KING IN BLACK, and it finally kicks off this new comic day in the pages of KING IN BLACK #1!

After nearly two years of brewing in the pages of series like Cates VENOM and ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, not to mention little tidbits here and there in things like his THOR run, his SILVER SURFER BLACK, and more, this monstrous masterpiece is ready to EXPLODE into Third Eye this week!


After a campaign across the galaxy, Knull’s death march arrives to Earth and, worse yet, he hasn’t come alone! 

With an army of hundreds of thousands of symbiote dragons at his command, the King in Black is a force unlike any Earth’s heroes have ever faced. EDDIE BROCK, A.K.A. VENOM has seen firsthand the chaos that even one of Knull’s symbiotic monsters can wreak – will he survive an encounter with the God of the Abyss himself? 

From Donny Cates, Ryan Stegman, JP Mayer, Frank Martin and VC’s Clayton Cowles comes the definitive chapter in their two-year-long VENOM saga that changed everything you thought you knew about symbiotes!

Even if you’ve yet to begun reading Cates work on VENOM, and more, this is a MUST-READ place to start, as it serves as a perfect jumping on point not just for the saga of the dark Symbiote god, KNULL, but also the present-day MARVEL UNIVERSE as a whole!

Issue 2 drops this week, and it’s even better than issue 1!
