Massive 'Absolute Carnage' Event Extended

A forceful issue #5 is added! Plus, see the new cover for 'Absolute Carnage' #4!

On August 7, superstar creative duo Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman are set to put the Sinister Symbiote through hell once more...only this time, Carnage comes calling, and everyone who's ever worn a symbiote is dead in his sights.

ABSOLUTE CARNAGE kicks off in less than a month, and today, Marvel.com is exclusively announcing that this raucous rampage is extending its run into a fifth issue! This November, Cletus Kasady cannot be contained, and the blood-red reprobate's reign of terror continues in ABSOLUTE CARNAGE #5.

It's bad news for Eddie Brock, Spider-Man, and the heroes of the Marvel Universe...but in spite of their plight, members of the Merry Marvel Marching Society will unite in delight!

In addition to this deliciously dark update, the cover to ABSOLUTE CARNAGE #4 has been revealed!

Above, the mighty Marvel mastery of penciller Ryan Stegman, colorist Frank Martin, and inker JP Mayer is on display, as the symbiotic event of the year explodes to new heights.

Eddie Brock has taken a beating, lost the allies closest to him, and, after the shocking events of ABSOLUTE CARNAGE #3, sees no way to take Cletus Kasady down once and for all without making the ultimate sacrifice... But what is the ultimate sacrifice? And of the two beings that are bonded as Venom, which will make it out alive?
