Directors' Commentary: Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman on 'Venom' #1

As 'King in Black' takes over, join the creators of the smash-hit series for a tour of the ish that started it all!

Celebrate KING IN BLACK launch day with a special episode of Marvel's Pull List!

This week, your hosts Ryan "Agent M" Penagos and Tucker Markus welcome Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman—the creative team behind the Eddie Brock series that changed it all—for a retrospective on VENOM #1!

Venom (2018) #1

In the first of a two-part interview (which will be followed next week by a similar spoiler-filled episode dedicated to KING IN BLACK #1), Donny and Ryan go page-by-page, defining the decisions and details that went into the opening issue. The dastardly duo discuss it all—from their very first chat about the story, to an inspirational conversation Donny had with Jason Aaron, to the subtle choices Ryan made across the art in the ish, and so much more.
