Marvel Comics has revealed a new symbiote character debuting in the pages of Venom #11. When issue #11 of the current run of Venom hits comics stands, readers be introduced to Sleeper Agent. This brand new symbiote character will be part of the beginning of a new three-part story VENOMWORLD. As to precisely who or what Sleeper Agent is, remains a mystery. Readers will find out the answer and what lies ahead for Venom this August.


New York, NY— May 13, 2022 — Writers Al Ewing and Ram V and artist Bryan Hitch’s acclaimed run on VENOM continues to reshape the symbiote mythos in each explosive issue! And luckily for VENOM fans, the trio of superstar creators have no plans to slow down as the ongoing series enters its’ third terrifying arc this August in VENOM #11. Kicking off a three-part story called “VENOMWORLD”, readers will see Eddie and Dylan Brock’s journey take a sharp turn as they deal with the shocking revelations of VENOM #10. Dylan is still at the mercy of Bedlam while Eddie battles his way across the cosmos, discovering more about the symbiotes than ever before. And the hits keep coming as the SLEEPER symbiote joins the fray with a deadly new look… 

“Working on Venom has been a surprise, honestly. I wasn’t really familiar with the symbiote world before I drew the first pages of issue 1 but it’s been a hugely entertaining world to explore,” Hitch explained. “Al and Ram’s story (and it is a massive long-form epic) has given me so many different threads to play with from personal drama and urban action to all of space and time. I had to learn to draw cats for this book, not just symbiotes and Sleeper has become a favorite one to play with. We haven’t seen him too much but that’s about to change as he’s getting serious and upping his game. He’s bringing a new element and a new player into the symbiote world with Sleeper Agent. Chemical and biological warfare. This cover reveal is really only the first phase of Sleeper Agent’s look. They are symbiotes, after all…”
