Mark Knull's Long-Dreaded Arrival with King in Black Temporary Tattoos

Available Wednesday, December 2 at participating comic shops!

KING IN BLACK, the highly-anticipated Marvel event that will serve as the epic next chapter in Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman’s groundbreaking run on VENOM arrives Wednesday, December 2. To celebrate the launch of this years-in-the-making saga, fans will also have an opportunity to take home a KING IN BLACK temporary tattoo, designed by Donny Cates’ very own tattoo artist, Ian Bederman! Matching the KING IN BLACK #1 Tattoo variant cover, the darkly mesmerizing artwork serves as a perfect symbol of the chaos and destruction that awaits the Marvel Universe when Knull’s reign begins.
