Venom co-creator David Michelinie returns to the character again this year for another miniseries set during Venom’s early days.
Venom: Separation Anxiety by Michelinie and Death of the Venomverse artist Gerardo Sandoval will feature Eddie Brock encountering the Purple Man, who uses his powers to steal Brock’s symbiote and become “The King in Purple.”
