Junkies, we are ever expanding our coverage into the pop culture world and that, of course, includes comics. Marvel has released a new Behind-the-Scenes video with Donny Cates.

Press Release: In the aftermath of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s collapse, an evil has been awakened beneath the streets of New York…bringing with it a threat that could have drastic consequences for the symbiote and Eddie Brock! Marvel exclusive writer Donny Cates (Doctor Strange, Thanos) and artist Ryan Stegman (Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows, Uncanny Avengers) have created a Venom adventure 1,000 years in the making, and it’s already receiving rave reviews among fans and critics, who are calling the first issue “a rich, haunting story that works on a variety of levels” (Multiversity Comics).
In the past, Eddie and the symbiote have developed a very kindred friendship…and that was something I really wanted to explore,” explains Cates. Adds Cebulski, “there are certain stories in the Marvel Universe that redefine characters…and here, I think Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman are redefining and telling the Venom story for our generation.”
