For the last few years, Marvel has had a Symbiote-related event in their lineup. Even with the pandemic, and a delayed Empyre event, it looks like this year will be no different. Today, Marvel revealed that the upcoming Symbiote event will be titled King In Black and will feature coming of the Symbiote god, Knull. The creative team behind the current Venom series and last year’s Absolute Carnage event will also be behind the King In Black – writer Donny Cates and artist Ryan Stegman.
Here is how Marvel describes the series:
Knull is coming, and when he arrives, everyone from the Avengers to the X-Men will learn just how unprepared they are to face off against the God of the Symbiotes. Everything in Cates and Stegman’s landmark run on VENOM has led up to this monumental story, and readers will finally witness Eddie Brock’s climatic standoff with one of Marvel’s most terrifying villains.
The company also has a promotional video about the event:
The King is scheduled to arrive in December.
