Marvel to Begin Planting Seeds of Next Venom Event in February

Absolute Carnage just wrapped up this week, but that doesn't mean Marvel isn't thinking several super-mega-crossover events ahead. The House of Ideas isn't so-named because they have a lot of ideas. It's because they have a few solid ones, and they stand by them. If one cover is good, twenty-seven variant covers are better. Everything's better with a new number one issue, especially sales. And ongoing series are just a way to pass the time between super-mega-crossover events.

So it's no surprise that Marvel is already planning the next big Venom event, and they're planting the seeds in February's Venom #23. The Bad Boy of Comics Donny Cates and Mark Bagley bring you this teaser for Absolute Carnage 2: This Time It's Carnager. With multiple variant covers, of course.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
