Ok, fine, let’s do this.
So, in an upcoming Guardians of The Galaxy story entitled Planet of The Symbiotes, we will once and for all learn the origin of the Venom symbiote.
Yep, it’s a story about some goo.
I know that a lot of people see Venom as Spider-Man’s arch-nemesis, or in his new incarnation as Flash Thompson’s legs, but I’ve never really been able to get behind the character (same goes for his cousin/brother, Carnage).
But, it’s Bendis and Guardians of The Galaxy is a book that’s been pretty solid so far, so I’m willing to give it a shot. Even if it’s no good though, thanks to Odo from Deep Space Nine, Venom will still only be my second-least-favourite pile of goo.
Today’s secret origin comes to us from Lucas Elliot:
Lucas Elliott is a freelance illustrator, character & concept artist currently based out of the great state of Alaska. When he is not locked in his studio, writing and illustrating his own stories, or working on projects for various companies across the country, he is adventuring through the frozen wilderness with his wife and canine companion; or watching cartoons.
Have a great weekend, friends! See you next week!
