Axis: Carnage

ComicBook.com reports exclusive details about an upcoming 3-part mini, AXIS: CARNAGE!

Marvel was hesitant to share any of the 3-issue mini’s finer details, only offering the nugget that Carnage will return to Manhattan with major status-quo upheaval that no New Yorker will see coming. Marvel says the overhaul ties directly into the main series’ still-secret twist, which will apparently turn the Marvel Universe on its head—or, um, axis. With Carnage amongst the roster of villains featured on the inaugural AXIS teaser image, it’s safe to say the mini might hold an important piece to the greater AXIS puzzle. Leading Carnage into the mysterious new world of AXIS is writer Rick Spears and artist German Peralta, both creators who have spent plenty of time dabbling with less-than-cuddly characters.
“When talking about this with [AXIS writer Rick] Remender, he made it clear the only person capable of the madness necessary to get Carnage through AXIS was Rick Spears,” says Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “And he wasn’t wrong. Rick’s plan is so wonderfully insane and while I can’t say much without giving Axis away, it’s going to shock and appall just about everybody.”
