Marvel Comics announced today that scribe Rick Remender will be leaving Venom, and Cullen Bunn will be taking over full time beginning in August. Remender brought the black space goo back into popularity this past year, re-imagining Venom as government solider, Flash Thompson. While many fans were skeptical at first, Remender proved why he’s one of the best writers out there, delivering a kick-ass series that was utterly different from the 90s classic. This switch is a bittersweet one, as Cullen Bunn – who recently took over “Wolverine” – has been making a big name for himself.
Cullen Bunn has been sharing writing duties on “Venom” with Remender for the past few months, so it’s not much of a surprise that the torch is being passed over. In discussion with CBR, Remender said, “We developed a method of volleying the scripts back and forth, and it got the best of both of us. People who have read #17 have seen the result of that, and I’m very proud of that issue”. It seems this is a mutual decision amongst the two friends, and Remender will still be writing Venom in the pages of “Secret Avengers”.
Bunn, who is best known for his work on the hit indie western/horror title, “Sixth Gun”, will begin his run on Venom in August with issues #22 and #23.
