Venom and Carnage will try to eat each other again in a four-part event this spring.
Venom and Carnage will cross over in March and April, bringing together Cletus Kasaday and Dylan Brock for the first time, and debuting a new look for Carnage.
The crossover will be written by Torunn Grønbekk and Al Ewing, with art by Ken Lashley, who also will do a series of connecting variant covers for the crossover, and Pere Pérez.
“There is some family drama going on here because technically they’re both the child of Eddie or Venom in a sort of strange way and it felt natural to bring them together,” Grønbekk said on the This Week at Marvel podcast. “It brings up, especially for Dylan, all the secrets that Venom has kept from him. Venom was the one who made Eddie do horrible things. If Dylan sees the full extent of what Venom has done in this world, it might not be great.”
Here’s the new look for Carnage, designed by Cafu:

The new title comes from writer Torunn Grønbekk and artist Pere Pérez who set out “to reunite the bloodthirsty symbiote with its equally ruthless host.” Currently Cletus Kasady is split from the Carnage symbiote, but it sounds like that could be changing.
