Writer Donny Cates has recently shared a message to retailers in Vegas about the upcoming Absolute Carnage event from Marvel for the Venom and Spider books.
Epic Summer Event- Absolute Carnage
The Marvel Comics writer just attended the Diamond Retailer Summit at Las Vegas.
Marvel Comics will be giving away versions of Donny’s own tattoos as promotional novelty items alongside the release in August of Absolute Carnage #1.
It includes the new limited series SCREAM, featuring the return of a classic symbiote…the daughter of Venom!
This August Carnage is taking over Marvel Comics with a mini-event of his own. We get to know that it comes 8 tie-in series(or maybe more).
The tie-in series has plenty of great personalities and creators already getting in on the Carnage game like Donny Cates and Frank Tieri, to Saladin Ahmed, Cullen Bunn, and Clay McLeod Chapman.
Artists like Iban Coello, Marcelo Ferreira, Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque, Federico Vincentini, Gerardo Sandoval, and Brian Level are joining in the fun too.
In addition to Carnage’s usual sparring partners like Spider-Man and Venom, this time Carnage will get in touch with many Marvel heroes are including Avengers, X-Men and other to summon Knull, the creator and god of the symbiotes.
