Fans of Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman’s run on Venom have known that “Knull is coming” for quite sometime, and now Marvel has revealed when exactly he’ll arrive — in King in Black, which starts in December.
Knull — which means “Fuck” in Swedish — is the god of the symbiotes, and in King in Black, he’ll be taking on not just Venom, but the Avengers, the X-Men, the Hulk and more.
“As far as event books go, this is the coolest, darkest, most heavy metal, Cthulhu dark horror thing I’ve ever been able to do,” Cates said in an announcement video. “I still can’t believe that Marvel is letting us go as dark and scary as we’re going.”
You can watch the video below, featuring Cates and Stegman talking about the book.
“One of the things I’m most proud of in this series… is the creation of the character Knull,” Stegman said. “We have some new designs that we’ll be unveiling throughout the series that are really cool and really creepy.”
The event series kicks off in December.
