Not long ago, we learned that Eddie Brock, the original Venom, would be returning this spring just in time to see the comic book series that also bears that name reach the milestone of its 150th issue. But just because he was slated to be involved, we all knew that didn’t necessarily mean he would once again don his iconic black and white costume in anything other than promo and cover art.
Well, I guess today is the day we can stop playing the “will he or won’t he?” game because it appears that Brock will indeed bond with the symbiote once more, at least for this particular issue. Check out the description from Marvel and see for yourself:
Reunited, and it feels so good! Or, is it bad? Either way you swing it, Eddie Brock is back, and he’s bonding with the symbiote once more ahead of the can’t-miss Venom #150 – the oversized anniversary spectacular coming this May! Series writer Mike Costa is joined by superstar guest artist Tradd Moore for an oversized main story featuring Eddie’s return to the pages of Venom. Bonded together again, Eddie and the symbiote are web-slinging their way across New York City. But, is their relationship as harmonious as it once was? Or is their bond more sinister than ever?
In addition to the main story, Marvel intends on filling in some gaps when the Venom: Space Knight creative team of Robbie Thompson and Gerardo Sandoval let us know just how Flash Thompson parted ways with the symbiote before it came upon Lee Price. Furthermore, the legendary duo of David Michelinie and Ron Lim will return for a tale set within the confines of their Venom: Lethal Protector run.
Venom #150 is set to arrive in comic shops sometime this May. Until then, we’ll keep you posted when it comes to further developments regarding this landmark anniversary issue.
