In April, writer Donny Cates will bring Wraith - the Kree gunslinger who played a role in Cates' Guardians of the Galaxy run - to the spotlight in a Web of Venom one-shot.

Announced via AiPT!, the one-shot pits Wraith against Knull, the god of the symbiotes who has played a key role in Cates' ongoing Venom run.

“Wraith is one of my favorite characters at Marvel. A sinister and silent gunslinger in space with a secret past! What’s not to love!" Cates said. "When last we saw him in Guardians of the Galaxy, he had gained knowledge from Eros, brother of Thanos, as to the location of his imprisoned god. The one who cursed him. The one we know as Knull.

"Now, see where his journey takes him from the pages of Guardians of The Galaxy, and heading into the deadliest chapter of Venom yet!”

The rest of the creative team hasn't been announced, but the cover, seen here, is by Kyle Hotz. Web of Venom: Wraith is due out in April.
