Marvel to Begin Planting Seeds of Next Venom Event in February

Absolute Carnage just wrapped up this week, but that doesn't mean Marvel isn't thinking several super-mega-crossover events ahead. The House of Ideas isn't so-named because they have a lot of ideas. It's because they have a few solid ones, and they stand by them. If one cover is good, twenty-seven variant covers are better. Everything's better with a new number one issue, especially sales. And ongoing series are just a way to pass the time between super-mega-crossover events.

So it's no surprise that Marvel is already planning the next big Venom event, and they're planting the seeds in February's Venom #23. The Bad Boy of Comics Donny Cates and Mark Bagley bring you this teaser for Absolute Carnage 2: This Time It's Carnager. With multiple variant covers, of course.

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.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
