Absolute Carnage #1 Will Cost $7.99, #2 Will Be $4.99

The dust from War of the Realms will have barely settled by this August, but Marvel is wasting no time in launching the next super-mega-crossover event: Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman's Absolute Carnage. We've already heard all about the tie-ins that will be emptying your wallet this Summer, but it turns out you may need to set aside some extra cash just to buy the main 4-issue series.

According to Marvel's August solicitations, Absolute Carnage #1 will carry a $7.99 cover price for 72 pages. But if you thought you'd get a reprieve after that, you're wrong, as the second issue, and presumably the rest, will be 40 pages for $4.99. $23 for four issues? The entire fourteen-issue Maximum Carnage event cost less than $25 back in the day.

Check out the solicits below and start saving now, true believers!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
