A Fan-Favorite 90s Story Returns in Venom #23 [Preview]

Venom #23 is in stores from Marvel Comics next week, by the self-proclaimed Bad Boy of Comics Donny Cates and Mark Bagley, as the repercussions of the Absolute Carnage super-mega-crossover event continue to send shockwaves throughout the Venom universe or something.

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.
