My greatest hope for this series is that it maintains quality and longevity, introducing great, new characters that carry over into the mainstream Marvel Universe.

A cool-looking new series from Scout Comics! Supposedly, it’s perfect for fans of Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Rick and Morty. That’s some pretty good company there. “The next entry in the new BINGE.

by Glenn Snow | February 15th, 2019

What a cool concept! A Peter David/Greg Land Spider-Man tale from the ‘black costume’ days before we knew the symbiote was the nefarious ‘Venom.’ And Mysterio is the main baddie! This will be epic. “Everyone knows that Spider-Man’s infamous black suit would someday become the wicked web-slinger called Venom – but what happened BEFORE Peter Parker discovered the black suit’s sinister secret? Find out in this dynamic tale from comics legends PETER DAVID and GREG LAND. Set during the original ‘Black Suit Saga,’ this is an all-new tale that pits the wall-crawling wonder against that most mystifying of menaces…MYSTERIO.
