THE HUNT FOR BLACK OCTOBER STARTS NOW! Venom's made a solid go as newly-recruited Agent of the Cosmos, aiding the hopeless and oppressed across the galaxy. He's even picked up some powerful and powefully odd allies (sad cyborg 803, strong serpent-tressed Iqa, and MERCENARY SPACE PANDA Pik Rollo). But even they might not be enough to stop what's coming. A fearsome new foe has set sights on Agents of the Cosmos, so it looks like Venom's training is about to get INTENSIVE.
