NEW MORBIUS BOOK CONFIRMED IN JANUARY!

When you’re one of the Marvel Universe’s most brilliant minds, science is a useful tool for solving problems — but if a science experiment goes awry, it can create a problem worse than the one you’re trying to solve. That’s exactly what happened to Nobel Prize winning biochemist Doctor Michael Morbius when he tried to cure himself of a rare blood disease and found himself transformed into a monstrous and bloodthirsty living vampire.
Ever since his transformation, Morbius has struggled to control his insatiable blood lust and cure his vampiric condition. Over the years those struggles have made him both an ally and enemy of a number of Marvel heroes. Spider-Man is his most frequent friend and adversary. The two recently crossed paths in the “No Turning Back” arc of “Amazing Spider-Man” where Morbius tried to develop a serum to restore the humanity of Spider-Man’s foe, The Lizard. Morbius’ hope was that if he could cure The Lizard, he could cure himself. Unfortunately, things went wrong and the arc ended with Morbius in prison after a violent and bloodthirsty rampage.
This January, Morbius leaves prison behind and take a redemptive journey of self discovery into some of the Marvel U’s weird and mysterious places in writer Joe Keatinge (“Hell Yeah,” “Glory”) and artist Rich Elson’s (“Journey Into Mystery”) new ongoing series “Morbius: The Living Vampire.” The series was announced yesterday at Marvel’s “Amazing Spider-Man” panel at Fan Expo in Toronto and CBR News spoke with Keatinge and Elson about their plans for the book.
