Guardians of the Galaxy Discover Venom's Origin

Guardians_of_the_Galaxy_21_CoverA quick note before the press release:

I’m looking forward to this story from Marvel Comics!  But, I’m a little skeptical as well.  Like it says, we haven’t known the origins of Venom for many years now.  It’s like knowing the origin of the Borg in Star Trek mythology.  Are we ready for this?  I don’t know yet.  But, it sounds like an exciting ride for the Guardians to go to a planet of deadly symbiotes!  I’m going to be reading it.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Face the Planet of the Symbiotes This November!

This November, dare to venture where no hero in the Marvel Universe has ever gone before as the Guardians of the Galaxy find themselves stranded on the home world of the Symbiotes! It all kicks off this November in Planet of the Symbiotes, the newest storyline beginning in Guardians of the Galaxy #21, from blockbuster writer Brian Michael Bendis and Marvel All-New Young Gun artist Valerio Schiti!

Ever since the Symbiote bonded with Flash Thompson, he has wielded it as a force for good, making the Earth a safer place as the hero known as Venom. Only the far reaches of space are a little bit out of his depth – even when he’s packing a crazed alien costume!

“Isn’t it interesting after all this time, we’ve never seen the Symbiote’s home planet?” says Executive Editor Mike Marts. “What does the planet look like? How will they respond to Agent Venom? It’s a lot of mystery, which is always fun. But come November, we’ll be adding to the Symbiote mythology in some new and exciting ways.”

With the Venom Symbiote back among its own species, where will it’s allegiances lie? Trapped on a world full of hostile alien parasites, the Guardians of the Galaxy might begin to regret letting Flash Thompson join their team!

Finally reunited once more, will the Guardians of the Galaxy’s first mission back together be their last? Find out this November, as the team are put to the test on a planet of carnivorous aliens in Guardians of the Galaxy #21 – the first issue of Planet of the Symbiotes!
