Marvel's current ongoing Venom series will return to the original Venom numbering in May with Venom #150, announced via IGN. The story will return Eddie Brock to the role of Venom, with a back-up that explains how the Symbiote parted ways with Flash Thompson.

Venom #150 will be written by regular series writer Mike Costa, with art from guest artist Tradd Moore. The Flash Thompson back-up story will be written by Robbie Thompson, with art from regular Venom artist Gerardo Sandoval. A second back-up by classic Spider-Man writer Dave Michelinie and artist Ron Lim will flashback to Venom's "Lethal Protector" days.

“[Issue #150 is] going to be the first adventure Eddie and the symbiote go on once they’re reunited and free of Lee Price and the FBI’s symbiote task force," said editor Devin Lewis. "Eddie Brock and Venom, swinging through the concrete jungle. There’s a lot of ‘Lethal Protector’ in the DNA of Mike’s current run and his approach to Eddie, and, like that story, Mike’s has a lot of heart. But I’ve been adamant about the fact that the symbiote has to be a threat. Not necessarily to Eddie or anyone in particular,other than Spider-Man, but certainly to the world around it. It can and should be a destabilizing force. Regardless of its mental state or the fact that it’s been cleansed, Lee has proven that the symbiote can be dangerous in the wrong hands, and we’re going to see the ramifications of that play out in Tradd’s story.”
