There are many worlds in Marvel’s multiverse, and everyone of them has a Venom! This summer, the Venoms of every Earth will collide in Venomverse, and it’s all starting next week!

To kick off the event, CraveOnline is proud to present an exclusive preview from Edge of Venomverse # 1, the first of a five-issue prelude series that will explore familiar characters on other worlds who have been “venomized,” so to speak. The first heroine to receive her own symbiote is none other than Laura Kinney, the young woman known as X-23!

During her escape from Weapon X, X-23 (who also happens to be Wolverine’s clone) encountered the Venom symbiote and bonded with it. Our preview picks up a few months later, as Laura struggles to contain Venom’s darker appetites. But there’s no way that she can hide forever!

The series that sets up the epic VENOM EVENT of 2017 STARTS HERE! Each issue introduces another major Venomized character that will feed into VENOMVERSE itself! THIS ISSUE, the young mutant clone designated X-23 collides with a cryogenic tube containing a strange alien symbiote during her frenzied escape from The Facility, . Bonding with the alien enhances her already considerable abilities, and aids in her escape, but it begins to alter her mind! On the run from the very people that made her, can X-23 hold it together or is she doomed to give in to Venom!
