Marvel announced at C2E2 the upcoming comic event Absolute Carnage from the creative team of writer Donny Cates, artist Ryan Stegman
Preceded by Spider-Man/Venom #1 (out May 5 for Free Comic Book Day), the event officially kicks off in August.
“Absolute Carnage encompasses every single character who has ever worn a symbiote and every symbiote that has ever been, going all the way back to when Peter found the black suit,” said Cates in the teaser trailer released by Marvel.
One of Venom’s fiercest enemies, Carnage was serial killer Cletus Kasady before merging with an alien symbiote. He was recently resurrected by a cult in Web of Venom: Carnage Born #1 (2018) by Donny Cates and artist Danilo S. Beyruth.
Fans of the Venom film will remember him as Woody Harrelson’s character in the mid-credits scene
