Marvel has revealed more information about the next entry in the ongoing story of Kid Venom, manga creator Taigami’s newest addition to the Venomverse. After his introduction in Cullen Bunn and Gerardo Sandoval’s Death of the Venomverse, the young hero will jump to his own one-shot Kid Venom: Origin #1. The book, which release this January will collect the backup stories from Taigami, which feature the character’s backstory and core motivation.
Alongside the reprint of the original story in the one-shot, the book is set to reveal Kid Venom’s future role in the Marvel Universe. Taigami will provide interior and cover art for the book, with Richard Isanove providing colors for the cover.
Taigami discussed the experience of working with Marvel in the press release, stating:
“It is an honor. I was a big fan of the Marvel Universe since I was in school, so this feels unreal that the characters and the stories that I came up with are in that Universe, and I still can’t believe it! Kid Venom was based on a one shot that I sent for a manga contest Shonen Magazine and Marvel held in 2018. One of the rules for the contest was [to use a theme or a character from Marvel and write and draw a first episode for a new series] and the theme that I chose was symbiote.”
