Hello all, I thought instead of having a Venom in August etc thread every few months, we could make a single Venom/Symbiote Solicits Thread and discuss/update it as needed. Here are some links to a January solicit for AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: EXTRA! # 2, which has an Anti-Venom story: http://www.marvel.com/catalog/?id=10761
Not anymore. And rumor has it that he (as Spiderman), Bullseye (as Hawkeye), Osborn (as Iron Patriot), and Moonstone (as Ms. Marvel) will be on Dark Avengers - whether this rumor is true I don't know.
Also, a new symbiote solicit for March:
Written by MARK MILLAR
Pencils & Cover by STEVE MCNIVEN
"OLD MAN LOGAN"
Now we know what happened fifty years ago, the day the super heroes were slaughtered. We know how Logan managed to survived. We know why WOLVERINE didn't. But that's nothing compared to what happens next, as Logan and Hawkeye reach New Babylon to deliver their mysterious cargo. But before they get there--they'll have to face their toughest challenge to date: a Venom Tyrannosaurus Rex! MARK MILLAR and STEVE MCNIVEN continue the career-defining epic that will have fans talking for years to come! Part 6 (of 8).
32 PGS./Parental Advisory ...$2.99
The whole dinosaur symbiotes was done so well in Deadpool 49 and 50 that I almost don't want to pick this up. But it is Millar so its probably good.
There is a preview art page too. Sadly, Chris Bacchalo is doing the art and personally, I detest his art. It's manga-y and confusing, so I guess I won't be picking this one up.
This is what Slott says about Anti-Venom's story in Amazing Spider-Man: Extra #2.
"Hitting stores January 28 is Dan Slott's next contribution to the Spider-Man mythos, the previously mentioned “Amazing Spider-Man: Extra” #2. “It picks up Anti-Venom emotionally, spiritually, and physically where we left him in 'New Ways to Die,'” the writer said. “We get to see him in his new status quo and the first big bad he runs into is Mr. Negative who, little does he know, is the guy who made him. That's going to be a big thing for him. Will he find out that Mr. Negative is the cause of his transformation into Anti-Venom? You'll have to read it. One thing I am going to say though is that there's a status quo change that happens in this book and it's an important element in the world of Spider-Man.”
Slott's Anti-Venom story is a 22-page full length tale. “If Anti-Venom had his own comic, this would be a good first issue,” he said. “It sets things up for his future appearances. You get to see developments with Martin Li, Mr. Negative, Aunt May, and Anti-Venom. So it's all good.”
“It's all good” is also what Slott thinks when he looks at the artwork of his collaborator on the Anti-Venom story, Chris Bachalo. “The amazing thing about working with Chris Bachalo is that the work starts out gorgeous and every step of the way it's like 'Oh my god! That looks even better now that it's in ink! And now look at the color!’ Because there's all this stuff he does in layers. So you see it and you're happy and then you go from happy to ecstatic and then from ecstatic to drooling. So it's amazing working with Chris and seeing the whole thing come together.”
