HERALD THE KING IN BLACK – The long teased Venom centric event is here, with Knull, the God of the Symbiotes, arrived on Earth. Donny Cates, Ryan Stegman, JP Meyer, and Frank Martin promise to out do their previous event, Absolute Carnage. King In Black double ships in this first month and Knull is not just here to invade, but to cancel Christmas. Several of the tie-ins this month will take a holiday themed approach to the event, which should provide interesting.
