ABSOLUTE CARNAGE News

The folks over at Bleeding Cool gave us a better look into what to expect from August's ABSOLUTE CARNAGE event:

From the Cates and Stegman interview:
"Will we see Rex Strickland from the beginning of your VENOM run again?"
"Yes." 
"Since all symbiotes are descended from a god, does that make Venom a demi-god?"
"It does now." 
"Will Norman Osborn ever make an appearance?"
"Yes." 
"How many former hosts will show up in this event?"
"All of them." 
"Will any symbiotes gain new hosts?"
"Yes. There is one character we are excited to unleash."




Bleeding Cool is also reporting that there will be 25 Carnage-ized Variants coming in July:



Finally, it looks like to keep up with this event we are going to have to purchase some non-symbiote issues:

And Marvel are going to be putting Carnage pages in the backs of ten different books similar to the Where’s Wolverine back ups from last year.

Will you be purchasing all of the main story, tie-ins, and variant covers?  Start saving now, this summer is going to be expensive, Venomaniacs!!

ABSOLUTE CARNAGE Announced


From Marvel.com:

In a video during today’s retailer panel at C2E2 in Chicago, acclaimed writer Donny Cates announced ABSOLUTE CARNAGE—Marvel’s epic summer event! 
Beginning in Free Comic Book Day's SPIDER-MAN/VENOM #1 (out May 5), the blockbuster event starts in August (although fans will see the threads reaching as far back as AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #252, with connections to almost every Venom and Carnage story since) and re-teams Cates with VENOM's Ryan Stegman and colorist Frank Martin for the deadliest story in the Marvel Universe! 
“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.”

Are you excited?!?!? Sound off in the comments!
