'Black Widow: Venomous' Evolves Marvel's Deadliest Avenger into a Lethal Symbiote Hero

This July, Black Widow headlines a new comic book one-shot by Erica Schultz and Luciano Vecchio that cements her new symbiote bond and sets up her role in the upcoming 'Venom War' crossover.

Last year in the pages of Al Ewing and Torunn Grønbekk’s hit run of VENOM, Black Widow became host to a symbiote of her own, and the results have been deadly! This July, dive into this startling development as Natasha fully embraces her new place in the symbiote hivemind in BLACK WIDOW: VENOMOUS #1!

Announced earlier today in AIPT’s new Venom Monday column, the one-shot will be written by rising star Erica Schultz, known for her thrilling work on DAREDEVIL: GANG WAR and HALLOWS’ EVE, and drawn by superstar artist Luciano Vecchio, currently delivering a breathtaking saga in RESURRECTION OF MAGNETO.

Together, they’ll unleash Natasha Romanoff’s full potential as a symbiote warrior, just ahead of VENOM WAR, an upcoming symbiote event launching later this year that will see every symbiote star choose a side in an explosive conflict between Venom father and son duo, Eddie and Dylan Brock

The Widow's Bite is Venomous! Natasha Romanoff, the infamous spy known as the Black Widow, didn’t go looking to bond with an alien symbiote. But a good spy works with all the tools available to her, and when one of the most powerful and versatile weapons in the universe lands in your lap… you take it. Now, she just needs to figure out how to work with a weapon with its own drives and desires. Redefining Widow’s relationship with her symbiote, and setting the stage for her appearance in VENOM WAR!

"Who doesn’t want to write Natasha Romanoff? And with a badass symbiote, it didn’t take much to convince me," Schultz said. "Luciano Vecchio’s art is so amazing. It’s been so fun to delve into Nat’s spy craft techniques, and you just may learn something new about her."
