Carnage, along with his original host Cletus Kassidy, is about to tear through the Marvel Universe with a new title that will show the terrifying Spider-Man go solo. A spin-off from ‘Death of the Venomverse,’ the series will focus on the red symbiote as he causes chaos within the realm with a cover that showcases the villain.
“Many of Marvel’s hottest issues are shining on comic stands with Foil Variant Covers! This classic and iconic cover treatment is all the rage and this November, CARNAGE #1 will get one of its own by acclaimed artist Gabriele Dell’Otto,” Marvel said on their website.
They continued, “The piece captures the bloody fury the Carnage symbiote will unleash when it reunites with its favorite host—Cletus Kasady! Spinning out the current DEATH OF THE VENOMVERSE limited series, CARNAGE is written by Torunn Grønbekk and drawn by artist Pere Pérez. The series will reveal new levels of depravity and savagery from Marvel’s most terrifying villain as he continues his dark ascent to power!”
You can take a look at Dell’Otto’s cover here:
Carnage first appeared in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man #359’ created by writer David Michelinie and artist Mark Bagley in 1992.
New series writer Grønbekk expressed his excitement saying, “What are powers without purpose? Having hunted down and triumphed over his greatest weaknesses, Carnage’s powers are unrivaled. However, a piece is still missing—the symbiote needs a host with the ambition to match its own. And for Carnage, there was only ever one. (And you know who!)”
“I knew writing Carnage would be an opportunity to explore some pretty dark themes, but I am surprised and delighted to find that the darkness is coming from some unexpected places,” Grønbekk continued. “It is my kind of horror—overwhelmingly gruesome but still rooted firmly in humanity. Expect big symbiote action, mysteries, myth, and murder. This is gospel, according to Cletus Kasady, and he is the end of the world as we know it.”
The release date for the premier issue is set for November 15, 2023.
