Marvel Comics have announced their new initiative “A Fresh Start” which will kick off in May. They promise new creative teams, new series, new directions and new beginnings. One of the announced titles is Spider-Man’s symbiotic foe, Eddie Brock with VENOM #1 launching on the 9th of May! Here’s Tom Brevoort, SVP and Executive Editor talking about Marvel’s “A Fresh Start”.

“Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out new beginnings for a few of our key franchises—new creative teams, new starting points, new storylines—all the big stuff that we’ve been building towards since LEGACY began. This isn’t a clearing of the slate—while these new starts will kick off with new #1s, we’ll be maintaining the classic LEGACY issue counts as dual numbering on these titles as well. Oh, and don’t read anything into not seeing a character on the Jim Cheung piece…we can only squeeze so many characters onto there without killing poor Jim!”

One of the most promising titles coming out of this new relaunch is VENOM #1 with the return of the original host, Eddie Brock! Why does it hold promise? The creative team is none other than Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman. Donny Cates has been doing astonishing work writing DOCTOR STRANGE and THANOS. Artist Ryan Stegman already knows his way around the Spidey Universe, having drawn the SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN series and AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: RENEW YOUR VOWS. The preview below already makes them look like a formidable team with twisted and fantastic stories to tell.

So what will they have in store for a character who celebrates 30 years this year? Will this Venom be a hero, a villain or somewhere in between? Will Spider-Man have to watch his back? The only way to find out is to read VENOM #1 when it hits shops this May!

VENOM #1 is Available in Comic Stores on May 9th!
