August’s Absolute Carnage event looks like one of Marvel’s better ones in a long time, though many would argue that War of the Realms feels pretty solid as well. Admittedly, Jason Aaron’s event has been teased throughout his years-long Thor run but Donnie Cates has done a great job at sprinkling clues in his Venom comic as well. Either way, the spiritual successor to Maximum Carnage looks like a good time.
To celebrate, Marvel is imagining how many of their iconic heroes would look like while possessed by the Carnage symbiote. Many of these comic book covers will be available this July and there will be a whopping 25. Fans of Carnage might want to save up for July since these covers look real slick.
