As implied by its absence from Marvel’s November solicitations, and now confirmed by the publisher on their website, the ongoing Venom series is to end in October with issue #42.

One of those titles which managed to quietly build up a fairly substantial run, the series was launched by Rick Remender and Tony Moore, with Cullen Bunn taking over writing duties roughly halfway through the run. This was all part of a concerted effort to build up a family of Spider-titles – surprisingly, the book has been outlasted by Scarlet Spider, the Chris Yost-written series which featured an arguably less-familiar character.

This could well be a natural end point for Venom anyway, though – Bunn notes that he’ll be wrapping up the thematic elements which have been in place since the first issue, and the character will thereafter appear in Dan Slott’s Superior Spider-Man series.

With the announcement of Venom’s cancellation, following on from similar announcements for Astonishing X-Men and X-Factor, I believe this means that Wolverine & The X-Men is now Marvel’s longest-running series with 34 issues to its name. Daredevil follows with 30.
