CARNAGE FOREVER To Celebrate 30 Years Of Carnage In February Ahead Of New Ongoing Series In March
That's right, Marvel Comics is once again set to turn the spotlight on Cletus Kasady as they celebrate Carnage's 30th anniversary! Find details on Carnage Forever, and his new ongoing series, right here.
Believe it or not, it’s been 30 years since Carnage slashed his way into the Marvel Universe and went on to become one of the most terrifying villains in comic book history. Next February, Marvel celebrates the bloodthirsty icon in a special one-shot titled Carnage Forever.
Featuring stories by an all-star assembly of creators including Phillip Kennedy Johnson, Ram V, Ty Templeton, and Edgar Salazar, this one-shot will be packed with violent stories from everyone’s favourite symbiote serial killer’s notorious past, present, and future (which is definitely a surprise considering the fact Cletus Kasady is very much dead after Absolute Carnage).
"What makes Carnage such a fun challenge to write is that everyone thinks they know what to expect from him," Johnson explains. "I’m a huge fan of horror stories in any medium, and getting to lean into the unbridled violence and terror of Carnage - while also finding new ways to subvert reader expectations - has made it a complete thrill. I wanted to show Carnage in an almost Exorcist-like setting. Without spoiling it, we see him make an unexpected bond with a very unexpected kind of character, with all the grisly and horrifying consequences Carnage fans have come to expect."
Adds Ram V, "It’s been a lot of fun working in the Symbiote corner of the Marvel Universe. Now with Carnage Forever, I’m thrilled to have a chance to tell some absolutely twisted tales for the killer symbiote for this anniversary collection and perhaps seed some ideas for things to come."
Carnage Forever #1 is set to be released on February 23...and it will be followed by a new ongoing series in March! Clearly, this will be where Cletus is once again brought back from the dead!
