Marvel Comics Spins a Dark Web Across Dimensions this September with VENOMVERSE!
Venom, the Lethal Protector, defends the multiverse in an all-new series this fall
New York, NY—May 31, 2017—The tendrils of the symbiote are about to ensnare the entire multiverse to combat an all-new foe that has Venom terrified for his very existence. This September, Cullen Bunn (X-Men Blue, Darth Maul) and Iban Coello (Venom, Deadpool & The Mercs for Money) craft the epic VENOMVERSE!
On a routine battle Venom finds himself transported to a far-off world and learns a terrible truth – a deadly new species has emerged from the vastness of space, and to make matters worse, they’re hunting Venoms! Trapped on the planet’s surface with a ragtag band of Venomized heroes, Eddie has no choice but to mount a counteroffensive and hope to find a way home!
What is the new apex predator species called the Poisons and what is their terrifying connection with the Venom symbiote?
The Poisons have now enacted a plan to consume and feed across universes and Venom is first on the menu. “When a Poison attacks a symbiote, they form an unstoppable one-sided union that the Venom wants no part of,” said series writer Cullen Bunn. “And in order to find as many suitable symbiotes as possible, they are making their way across the multiverse in a quest for insatiable power.”
Beginning this September VENOMVERSE ensnares the entire Marvel Universe! And be sure to pick up the essential Edge of Venomverse – a bombastic new 6-issue series featuring your favorite characters and creators as they prepare for VENOMVERSE this September available wherever Marvel Comics are sold!

In the introduction to what promises to be one of Marvel’s most exciting series yet, superstar writer Matthew Rosenberg (Secret Warriors) and acclaimed artist Roland Boschi (Karnak, Ghost Rider) bring you the story of young mutant clone X-23…who gets more than she bargains for when she collides with an alien symbiote that affects her already enhanced abilities!
“We are showing a world where X-23 manages to escape from her creators with the help of Venom,” said series writer Matthew Rosenberg. “It’s a fun chance to explore two of Marvel’s most dangerous characters and see how things could have been different for them if their lives intersected. And if you are a fan of X-23’s early adventures, you’ll be happy to see some familiar, but slightly different faces in the book.”
X-23’s story is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to characters who will be seeing themselves caught in Venom’s hold. You wouldn’t want to get caught in Venom’s clutches – so don’t get caught without EDGE OF VENOMVERSE #1, available in comic shops June 28th!

Get Ready to Run this Fall with Marvel Comics’ RUNAWAYS
by Rainbow Rowell and Kris Anka
New York, NY—June 2, 2017— They were just a normal group of teenagers, linked only by their wealthy parents’ annual business meeting…until a chance discovery revealed the shocking truth: their parents were secretly Super Villains! This discovery led these kids to run away and put them at odds with the people who raised them! Their parents are gone and the team is scattered across the Marvel Universe. This September, get ready to run again with Marvel’s favorite teen Super Heroes, Nico, Chase, Karolina, and Molly for an all-new comic book series, RUNAWAYS by award-winning author, Rainbow Rowell (Eleanor & Park, Carry On) and Kris Anka (All-New X-Men, Star-Lord).
“The Runaways are down on their luck at the beginning of this story,” said series writer Rainbow Rowell. “I mean, a fair number of them are missing or dead… And the ones who are still standing feel lost. After their parents died in the original series, all they had was each other. What do they have now? Who are they on their own? This story brings the gang back together, but – in true RUNAWAYS fashion – probably not the way you’d expect.”
This new series kicks off when one original member does something drastic. “Chase makes a huge mistake – and then immediately drags Nico into his mess,” continued Rowell. “This whole arc explores what it actually means to be a Runaway. Are they a team? Are they a family? Do they have any reason to get back together?”
“Getting Rainbow on this book took years” says Executive Editor Nick Lowe, “but it was worth it and THEN some, especially with Kris Anka at her side.” Speaking of the series artist, Lowe added, “Kris is incredible, putting style, character and storytelling together to make him a perfect RUNAWAYS artist!”
This fall, super powered teens Nico, Chase, Karolina, Molly, and, of course, Old Lace, once again pair up for an all-new journey. If they were able to outrun their past adversaries and misadventures, has that prepared them for what’s to come or will they need to rely on each other even more than before? Prepare for a new twist on a modern Marvel classic perfect for fans old and new when RUNAWAYS hits comic shops this September!
