Get Those Black Crayons Ready for Color Your Own Venom

Marvel’s plan to make colorists obsolete so they have less cover credits to worry about continues in August with a new Color Your Own book, this time featuring everyone’s favorite symbiote-powered anti-hero, Venom. Of course, one wonders just how much coloring is really required when a character’s main color scheme is black and white. You’ll probably want to stock up on black crayons, markers, or colored pencils, and pick up a few pink ones in case you need to color Venom’s tongue.

Then again, you could take artistic license with Venom’s costume. We’ve always wondered how he might look in plaid or polka dots.

With a Todd McFarlane cover, Color Your Own Venom costs 10 bucks and hits stores in September. Check out the solicit below:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
