I came within a second of posting this as the “OMFG Of The Year”, but restrained myself. However, today Marvel Comics made an announcement so exciting that it merits some sort of special recognition as they announced that “FRANKENCASTLE” scribe Rick Remender will be penning the return of “VENOM” in 2011! Beyond the break you can check out a handful of photos as well as the full press release and get all the details! Read on for the skinny!
“Venom is back with an all-new mission and all-new human host, but just what does this mean for the Marvel Universe? Find out in Venom #1, kicking off a new ongoing series from red-hot creators Rick Remender (Uncanny X-Force) & Tony Moore (Frankencastle), with major repercussions for Spider-Man! In this shocking direction for everyone’s favorite symbiote, the government now has Venom as their own Spider-Man, complete with a new look and new mission—eliminate threats to America as a covert agent. But can anyone control the destructive force of Venom? And just who is the man behind the mask?
Venom #1 also features a stunning cover by Marvel EIC and CCO & superstar artist Joe Quesada along with a dynamic variant cover from rising star Paulo Siqueira!
