This Week’s Highlights for Wednesday 4/10/19

THE WEB OF VENOM: CULT OF CARNAGE #1 sets up the huge Donny Cates / Ryan Stegman “ABSOLUTE CARNAGE” event this Wednesday!!

The biggest symbiote-related event in the Marvel Universe since the iconic MAXIMUM CARNAGE starts brewing HERE!

One of the coolest things brewing for this Summer is the upcoming ABSOLUTE CARNAGE crossover that will explode out of the pages of the FREE COMIC BOOK DAY Spider-Man one-shot this May, and is the end result of all the awesomeness that Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman have been building in the pages of VENOM for the last year!

This is set to be the biggest storyline featuring everyone’s favorite homicidal red symbiote since his iconic starring role in MAXIMUM CARNAGE, and we cannot wait to see the first shots fired in this weeks WEB OF VENOM: CULT OF CARNAGE one-shot!

The HP Lovecraft Elder God / Otherworldly-style take on the VENOM symbiote, and it’s mythology is some of the coolest we’ve seen in comics in quite sometime, and ABSOLUTE CARNAGE is THE perfect place for you to find out why Cates & Stegman on VENOM is one of Marvel’s best books!

In CULT OF CARNAGE, a new terror has risen on the fringes of the Marvel Universe, stirring in the depths of space.

But evil is also rising on Earth, claiming one victim at a time in the name of the killer called CARNAGE!

If you’ve never read the Cates / Stegman VENOM run, we’re telling you now: it ranks right up there with IMMORTAL HULK and Jason Aaron’s epic AVENGERS run that’s going on as one of the best current MARVEL books out, and we recommend starting with the VENOM VOL.1 REX trade paperback to jump on board!

We’re telling ya, Third Eye Faithful — the first time we ever sat down and read Don Rosa’s epic LIFE AND TIMES OF SCROOGE MCDUCK — we had our minds blown, and we’ve been dying to share it with you for many years, but it’s been long out of print.
