In Next Week's Web of Venom: Carnage Born #1, Hell is Children in Cages

Marvel's previews are just chock full of political metaphors for hell this week, aren't they? Earlier, we saw hell compared to the American healthcare system in next week's issue of Weapon X. Now, it's Web of Venom: Carnage Born which explains what hell is, at least for a young Cletus Kasady: being trapped in a cage, sort of like the children of immigrants rounded up and separated from their parents by the Trump administration. The story comes via Kasady's origin story, as told by a group of Carnage worshippers hoping to resurrect the bloodthirsty villain, who was killed off in the Venomized crossover event.

Which Marvel preview will be next to make a political statement? We've got at least one more lined up, so stay tuned! And if nothing else, this does put is in the mood to rock out to some Pat Benatar

Web of Venom: Carnage Born #1, from the mind of global entertainment superstar Donny Cates and artist Danilo Beyruth, hits stores next Wednesday.

About Jude Terror

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

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
