Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel in the company’s press  teel us that “One of the coolest things about Venom is getting to see the symbiote bond with other Marvel characters. Well, we’re taking that idea and dialing it up to eleven this March.” Also,  “Some of our top heroes are about to get a symbiote makeover, courtesy of the best artists in the business. Each of these mega-talented artists let their imaginations run wild, producing some truly fun (and frightening!) variant covers.”

Venom #5 will feature the first meeting between Spider-Man and the new Venom and a major, status quo-altering cliffhanger. “Mike [Costa] and Gerardo [Sandoval] have a lot up their sleeves and they’re just getting started,” said Associate Editor Devin Lewis. “Each issue ramps up the stakes, and March’s Venom #5 is the biggest one yet. With a knock-down, drag-out fight with the one-and-only Spider-Man and a cliffhanger that’s definitely going to turn lots of heads.”

Look for Venom #5 and these Venomized Variants to hit stores in March 2017.
