Marvel has unveiled an advance look at its February 2021 solicitations for King in Black #4, and a host of recently announced tie-in titles for the Venom-centric crossover.

First up, the publisher offers a detailed description for King in Black #4 alongside its spare solicit text.

"In February, Knull’s influence continues to spread, ensnaring the entire planet in the darkness of his reign. Outgunned and outmanned, the heroes of the Marvel Universe will unite like never before," reads Marvel's official description of King in Black #4.

"Will the combined force of Eddie Brock, the Avengers, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and more be enough to turn the tide of this devastating conflict?" it continues. "Find out in February’s King in Black #4 as well as newly announced King in Black one-shots and tie-ins coming your way!"

On the other hand, the solicit text for King in Black #4 is particularly sparse, reading simply "What's a god to a king?"

King in Black #4 will be joined by a host of tie-ins in February, most of which have previously been announced.

February's tie-ins include Danny Lore and Mirko Colak's King in Black: Captain America #1, Gerry Duggan and Luke Ross's King in Black: Marauders #1, Geoffery Thorne and Germán Peralta's King in Black: Black Panther #1, and Dan Slott and Ze Carlos's Fantastic Four #29, in which King in Black crosses over into the core FF title.

Marvel has also released the official solicitations for those titles. Look for the publisher's full February 2021 solicitations later this month on Newsarama.
