A threat years in the making, Knull’s death march across the galaxy finally hits Earth in KING IN BLACK—with an army of thousands of symbiote dragons at his beck and call. Eddie Brock, AKA 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?

Great prelude reading before this takeover, the first issues of VENOM begin a saga beneath the streets of New York, where an ancient and primordial evil awakened. With it, something equally evil awakened in that most wicked of web-slingers: Venom. The symbiote may still be a Lethal Protector of innocents in New York, but this never-before-seen threat nearly forced Venom to relinquish everything it holds dear—including its human host.

What is Marvel Unlimited?

In last year’s ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, Cates and Stegman put the Sinister Symbiote through hell again by resurrecting his ultimate foe: Cletus Kasady, AKA Carnage. And no one was safe. On a hunt for every Super Hero in the Marvel Universe who had ever worn a symbiote, Carnage and his cult set their eyes on some of our favorite Marvel heroes, including Spider-Man, Deadpool, and the Avengers!
