As part of Local comics day, there will be special variant coverage for Venom # 2. This is the second issue of the highly anticipated series to come to Venom by writers Al Ewing (Immortal Hulk) and Aries V (Carnage: Black, White and Blood) with artist Bryan Hitch (The Ultimates). Artist Jonboy Meyers (Marvel Age: Spider-Man) tackles this particular cover, creating an image of Venom wielding a chain. Meyers has already made a Venom variant unmasking his new enemy.
New Venom the series takes place after the out-of-this-world king in black event, which saw Eddie Brock become the new King in Black. Now, his son Dylan officially takes on the role of Venom in his first series. The main cover for Venom #2 will be by interior artist Bryan Hitch and there will also be another variation by Ed McGuinness (Spiderman/Deadpool). The description of the issue also promises that both Brocks are already going to be pushed to their limits.
The cover featured on AIPT Comics further highlights how Venom has become Marvel’s Spawn. Not only is his channel reminiscent of Hellspawn, but cover artist Jonboy Meyers has even worked on it before. Spawn. The coincidence probably refers to the old Venom Writer Donny Cates’ love of ’90s comics, the run of which also marks the time Dylan opted for a more seemingly Spawn-inspired look after bonding with the symbiote. It will be interesting to see what new direction the creative team takes with this character, but based on this variant they seem more inclined to pay homage to Spawn. Will chains really come into play?
Local Comic Shop Day is an annual event hosted by ComicsPRO, a non-profit organization that seeks to help comic book retailers. The event aims to encourage comic book fans to support their local comic shops. A few other exclusives that will be at the event this year in addition to the Venom #2 variant of Meyers, including a Joy Operations #1 Tyler Boss variant cover, a Metal magic master #1 Variant of Adam Gorham, a Regarding Oswald’s body case #1 Variant of Ryan Sook, a limited edition graphic novel called Chuck D Presents Apocalypse 91: The Revolution Never Sleeps, and one Metallica Special Edition re-released to celebrate Metallica’s 30th anniversary Black album.
