Free Comic Book Day on May 4th 2019 sees the release of 51 different official Free Comic Book Day comic book titles, including a Spider-Man comic from Marvel Comics. Which contains a look ahead at Absolute Carnage, the upcoming big Venom event from Marvel later this year.
And has Eddie Brock making a statement that lays out just what Absolute Carnage is, as we may have surmised from recent issues of Venom and Web of Venom. From page one…
Carnage, the Carnagettes and those workshipping the great symbiote god Knull and collecting bits of symbiote from everyone who has worn one. And their spines being ripped out to retrieve what was left? Does that include everyone who has appeared on a Venomized cover? It just might.
But yes, even on-panel, that means all these folk.
And this fellow.
Looks like this might spread far and wide…
