Holy shit balls this is how you start an event.

Knull is finally here but before we even get to him the invasion begins. The Avengers along with Brock all work together to try and stop that...well you know that ain't going to work.

We get a surprise guest who comes into town to stop Knull, Brock making the big plays, and all the Avengers trying to stop the end from coming.

This is fantastic, really well paced, and the art is WONDERFUL. Give me more. GIVE ME MORE.

Questa saga sta monopolizzando praticamente tutte le testate Marvel, quindi sarà il caso di recuperare e di capirci qualcosa di più.
Anche se pare avere radici in tipo tre anni di Venom, per cui mi accontenterò di comprendere quanto possibile dagli albi legati a questo evento.

Certo che, pur avendo visto gli effetti di KiB sui vari albi, Knull appare davvero di un altro livello.
Praticamente si è scrollato di dosso senza neanche guardarli tutti gli eroi riuniti (anche se mancavano casualmente i pes

Going in I wasn't expecting to like this and, well, let's just say I wasn't disappointed.

I'm sure if you're a fan of Venom and have been following all the build up to this event then this was probably great, and judging by other people's reviews, it was. But this book is not new reader friendly. I had no idea what was going on or who anyone was, really. It took me long enough to figure out that the big guy with the beard was Eddie Brock and not Thor.

This is a corner of the Marvel universe that I

Well, it sure has taken a long time, but Knull finally came. Errr, arrived. He’s here.

And now that things are going, King in Black feels extremely reminiscent of Absolute Carnage. Cates and Stegman know how to do epic scale events in a way that I find extremely satisfying and the first issue wastes no time establishing its presence. And I sure am looking forward to seeing who and/or what else will be coming next. As in showing up...not the other...

Knull has made it to Earth. Eddie knows that he want him. All of the Avengers and X-men’s plans and defenses didn’t do diddly squat. Then Eddie painfully finds out Knull wants someone else, not him.

شروع شگفت انگیزی داره و خب به نظر میرسه واسه یکی دو ماه آینده کمیک بوک های خوبی خواهیم داشت. ببینیم این بار چطوری اونجرز جلوی قلع و قمع شدن زمین رو میخوان بگیرن، آخه این یکی دشمن شون زیادی خفنه :)
من چون زیاد آشنایی با سیمبیوت ها نداشتم باید یه سری ویدیو میدیدم (یا کلی کمیک بوک دیگه میخوندم که شدنی نبود!) در مورد ادی براک، ونوم، کارنج، نال و ... ولی خب به نظرم در کل تجربه ی فانی میتونه باشه.

I read this to understand what's happening in SWORD #2 because that comic book starts in the middle of this conflict and I had zero backstory. ...more

I haven't read any of Donny Cates Venom series. This is my first introduction to this massive Marvel event. Without having read any of the Venom build-up, I thought you could easily still understand the massive undertaking in this issue.

King in Black #1 is the invasion of Earth by Knull, the god of the symbiote. Eddie Brock (who I originally thought was Thor at first) is hiding his son, Dylan from Knull. Meanwhile, Captain America and Ironman are trying to stop Knull's invasion. There are appea

Great story! I won't be able to follow this entire story arc across all of the different titles, but I can't wait to read the rest of this mini-series. Detailed and eye catching artwork with a really good story that has well developed characters that make you want to know more about them and the story. I am very curious as to how this is going to play out. ...more

This was phenomenal!!!! I LOVE Knull what an amazing villain! Honestly this event is utter perfection I hope they do an omnibus collecting the whole thing every side series etc. Because I'd buy it in a heartbeat! This is just so good! I always loved stories in which the heroes lose before eventually winning but they lost big here! Just 10/10! ...more

Wow. This was a lot more action-packed and excited than I was expecting it to be! I haven't read a lot of current Marvel, and this is the first time I read anything with Knull. Consider me officially on board with the event! ...more
