venom: space knight 3 preview


This issue is getting extra coverage this week because writer Robbie Thompson worked with The Wounded Warrior Project for the story.  From CBR:

"Working with Wounded Warrior Project has been an invaluable part of the process of writing 'Venom: Space Knight,'" Robbie Thompson said in statement. "[Wounded Warrior Project spokesperson] Dan Nevins' insight was inspiring, generous and deeply moving, allowing us to create a more realistic character and story for the book. I'm forever grateful for their ongoing help and guidance." 
"Marvel's team has put so much time and consideration into the development of the Flash Thompson character as he faces this physical and emotional battle that many combat veterans have faced and are facing right now," Nevins said. "While the story itself is clearly sci-fi/fantasy, this storyline will bring awareness to the very real struggle of the obvious and not-so-obvious challenges in having lost limbs in combat, and to ultimately showcase the fortitude and resilience of the warriors Flash Thompson represents." 
"Venom: Space Knight" #3 is on sale tomorrow, Jan. 27.
