The current Venom series has been a bit of an enigma. It doesn't quite explain what happened to Flash Thompson, and has flipped the roles a bit to the point that the new host, Lee Price, is a bad egg who wants to do crimes, and the symbiote is the angel on his shoulder, trying to convince him not to. However everything changes next month as the original Venom, Eddie Brock, returns to the comic, and potentially returns to the role. Check out a first look at Mike Costa and Gerardo Sandoval's Venom #6.
A couple of significant things happened in Sony’s corner of the Marvel universe last week: The studio set a 2018 release date for a standalone Venom movie and hired a new screenwriter for its long-developing female-centric Spider-Man spinoff — two developments which seem to indicate that Sony is once again preparing to try their hand at building a Spidey cinematic universe. According to a new report, that’s exactly what’s happening, but things may be decidedly darker this time around.

Every month, comic publishers release their solicitation announcements to provide information to readers and retailers on comics that are coming out in three months’ time, but there’s so much information dropped at once that a lot can slip through the cracks.
This month in Marvel's April solicitations, some long lost character make big leading role returns, Marvel gambles big on the success of its latest event, and Jubilee goes to the mall.
On this day in history, Venom made his debut in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man. You might have heard a little something about it. To commemorate the occasion, Sideshow Collectibles officially unveiled its new Venom Premium Format Figure. The hulking symbiotic spider-monster now joins Spider-Man, Carnage, Black Cat and Green Goblin in Sideshow's expanding Spider-Statue series. Venom might also be the baddest in the bunch.
There’s something about the evil doppelganger that’s irresistible in superhero comics, and among a crowded room of Bizarros, Reverse Flashes and Sabretooths, one dark mirror of a villain stands out as the most iconic; the sinister symbiote known as Venom, which made its first full appearance in comics on this day in 1988.
The inevitable happens in Venom #5, by Mike Costa and Gerardo Sandoval, when the symbiote and its host get into a knock-down drag-out fight with the guy the symbiote has never forgiven for rejecting it, the Spider-Man known as Peter Parker. And Marvel is observing the event throughout the month of March with Venomized Variant covers that depict the heroes of the Marvel Universe overtaken by the Venom symbiote.
Ahead of Brazil's Comic Con Experience event in Sao Paulo, Iron Studios and the convention have revealed one of the official posters for the event. The poster, by Rafael Albuquerque, features Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen going up against two of the biggest Spider-foes, Venom and Carnage, on the Brooklyn Bridge. Ordinarily this would be a cool print in and of itself, but it's also providing the inspiration for Iron Studios' next statue series.
In recent years, the symbiote monster known as Venom has been under the control of Flash Thompson, who has mastered and tamed the menace and harnessed its powers as a force for good. However, in the upcoming Venom #1 by Mike Costa and Gerardo Sandoval, there's a new symbiote host, and it seems they have every intention of returning Venom to his his villainous ways. Ahead of its release next month, Marvel has provided us with an unlettered preview of the first issue.
