    Default King in Black

    Remember that Venom is apart of Spider-man lore too so lets show some support.

    Decided to bite the bullet and order a variant of #1 seeing as how I won't receive my copy until next year.
    But I'm excited for it regardless.

    Yeah, spoilers:
    Sentry and Hyperion are Marvel's Superman analogues.

    And wow, Bob's dead? That just shows how big a threat this is.

    Amazing issue. The Ezekiel reference was actually a surprise to me too, but it's glad to see that even now Spider-Man tried to help Eddie protect his son. Though that's mostly it for the Spider-Corner right now. Which, I mean, is looking as hopeless as all other corners right now. Knull really cleaned house.

    I thought it was funny Knull was hanging onto Brock almost identical to how Kindred was holding onto Spidey on the cover of #53

    No ASM tie in does bum me out I'll admit. Itd be a fun story to see Shocker, Electro, or Cardiac combating the Symbiote infested NYC, and I stand by Kindred getting involved wouldve been fun! Seems like such a missed chance for no direct tie in.

    I'm guessing King in Black has to take place after the events of Last Remains, right? Man, going through Kindred's mess and now the God of the Symbiotes. At least Knull is Eddie's enemy even if Pete is caught in the crossfire.

    That's for Nick Lowe to decide, the timeline of this.

    That's because Nick Lowe, editor of Spider-Titles (and also Daredevil and some others), is a good editor who knows how to do his job.

    Theres a 1 year time skip in the Venom issue right before this one, where King in Black immediately kicks off from. If I'd have to guess the timeline would go something like:

    -Kindred speaks to Cleatus-Osborn, leaves infuriated and revives Sin-Eater immediately after

    -Absolute Carnage happens

    -Sins Rising/Last Remains

    -Venom Beyond/Timeskip (X of Swords likely happening during timeskip too)

    -King In Black


    Suppose it's possible for past #60 to be KiB tie-in with Spidey if the timeline plays out like this but I'm not holding my breath

    Nick Lowe seems pretty laissez faire about this kind of stuff, but I guess so long as it's not interfering with anything it's not worth thinking about...

    Thinking about it, Nick Spencer's run has only ever tied into a single event so far, Absolute Carnage, and even then it ultimately looped back into furthering the Kindred Storyline.

    I was thinking the time skip only really occured in that timeline and when they returned to 616, they were at a similar time to when they left.

    My guess is that it takes place just after or towards the end of Last Remains. Then again, Spider-man has largely been separate from the other titles for a while, only ducking into Venom for a couple issues and then ducking out.

    marvel timeskips are completely meaningless and marvel editorial doesn't care at all, this affects no one but venom and you can put it wherever
