Head to Your Local Comic Shop for an 'Absolute Carnage' Launch Party

Get exclusive variants, posters, and gear at your LCS on August 7!

Gather with your fellow Venomaniacs to celebrate the launch of ABSOLUTE CARNAGE #1 this Wednesday, August 7!

Absolute Carnage

In the biggest Venom storyline yet, the Lethal Protector’s sinister spawn Carnage is on a mission to recover the codexes left behind inside every character that has ever bonded with a symbiote, so that he can summon the symbiote god Knull. Venom will have to team with friends and foes alike in order to prevent Carnage from succeeding in his deadly plot—all brought to you by the dynamite duo of Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman!

And this week's ABSOLUTE CARNAGE #1 Launch Parties have a titanic truckload of exclusive offerings, including limited edition variant covers and promotional items such as tattoos, posters, and even a premiere limited edition variant by series artist Ryan Stegman!

Join your fellow True Believers at a participating comic shop near you to usher in the all-encompassing event that’s poised to shake the symbiote world to its core!

Pick up issue #1 of this symbiotic saga at your local comic shop on August 7, and be sure to take part in the exclusive offerings seen in the gallery below!
