Introducing… Kid Venom!

Kid Venom Variant Cover by Luciano Vecchio

As part of Marvel’s “Summer of Symbiotes” event, get ready to meet Kid Venom, an all-new symbiote hero created by Manga artist Taigami.

The new character will have his story told in backup stories in backup stories of Death of the Venomverse, beginning with issue #2 in August.  These stories will be written and illustrated by Taigami.

Here’s the official character description:

Hailing from 10th century Japan, Kentaru will do anything to protect his village from mysterious symbiote attacks, even if it means bonding to a symbiote of his own! As he attaches himself to a new symbiote entity dubbed Clinter, Kentaru embraces his wild new abilities as Kid Venom! But is he in way over his head when Carnage’s fury swings his way?

The Death of Venomverse series will serve as the culmination of the summer-long season of symbiote insanity, and will be written by Cullen Bunn with art by Gerargo Sandoval.  The five-part epic promises to “revolutionize the symbiote mythos as Carnage embarks on a murder spree across the multiverse, hunting down every last symbiote to claim his crown as the new King in Black.”

Featuring a Main Cover by Bjorn Barends and a Kid Venom Variant Cover by Luciano Vecchio, DEATH OF THE VENOMVERSE #2 (of 5) will hit comic shops and digital platforms on the 16th of August 2023, and in the meantime, you can feast your eyes on Taigami’s original design sheets below.
