You thought Spider-Man was Venom's first human host? Wrong. In the newly-announced miniseries Venom: First Host, Marvel is revealing a previously-unknown host to the Venom symbiote prior to his debut in the original Secret Wars - and he's back in modern times, and asking for help. First reported by CBR, the series will run concurrently with the recently relaunched Venom ongoing.
Scheduled to launch this August, the five-issue Venom: First Host series by writer Mike Costa and artist Mark Bagley reveals a new chapter in the history of the Klyntar alien symbiote known as Venom.
Here is the solicitation. Look for Marvel's full August 2018 solicitations later this month here at Newsarama.
