This Free Comic Book Day, Spider-Man and Venom are going to be back at it.
After a year that saw Spider-Man and Venom take over the pop culture landscape with two hit movies and a massively successful video game, it should be no surprise that the pitch Marvel has for bringing new fans into comic shops this May is symbiote-centric.
Earlier today, the publisher announced the creative teams behind FCBD Spider-Man/Venom #1, which they claim “might just become the most ordered and most sought out single issue in the entire history of FCBD!”
A high bar to clear? Perhaps — but there is obviously a lot of affection for these characters, and it sounds like the one-shot will pay off some stuff that Marvel will be teasing, rather than just serving as the traditional one-off story or start to the event.
Everyone knows Miles Morales, who rose to fame in Marvel’s acclaimed animated sensation Into The Spider-Verse – and with a second feature film arriving this year, Peter Parker will once again suit up to save the world with his web-slinging super powers! In a special FCBD story, creators Tom Taylor, Saladin Ahmed, and Cory Smith take these superstar heroes of the Spider-Verse in a shocking new direction, with a story that will build to one of Marvel’s most fantastic and epic tales later this year!
