Marvel has announced their next Spider-Man related event, Absolute Carnage, at this weekend’ C2E2 convention in Chicago. The series will feature the symbiote-wearing character Carnage as he goes hunting for “every single character who has ever worn a symbiote.”
Donny Cates, the current writer of Venom, will write the series, who re-teams with artist Ryan Stegman and colorist Frank Martin.
“Cletus Kasady is back, and he is deadlier than he’s ever been,” Cates teases in the video announcement. “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. Going from there to Maximum Carnage to Venomized to everything…everyone is a target.”
The story will kick off in one of Marvel’s Free Comic Book Day offerings, Spider-Man/Venom, and then spin off into its own event in August.
