It's Free Comic Book Day. And you can catch up with all of Bleeding Cool's Free Comic Book Day 2019 coverage with this handy link. Now, we already looked at today's Spider-Man/Venom Free Comic Book Day title, as it lays down the nature of the upcoming Absolute Carnage event, with disciples of the symbiote god Knull excavating the remnants of symbiotes from anyone who has ever hosted one. And Eddie Brock trying to warn the world.
So we have a Venomless Eddie Brock in jail. And who should be in the same prison as him but Lee Price.
Who previously was a host for the Venom symbiote…
…and then later for the Mania symbiote, born from Venom when Flash Thompson was the host, dubbing himself Maniac.
And perfectly times to be retrieved by Eddie Brock… if that's who he is..
Eyes full of Knull, recreated in a new form – and a very familiar name.
And a new mission. This is Absolute Carnage… and he was Cletus Cassaday all along. With his symbiote taking on the form of Eddie Brock. And finding another symbiote to feed on, for the greater glory of Knull.
And he's coming to a crossover event near you soon.
