Carnage Returns to Marvel Comics in ‘Web of Venom: Carnage Born’
Spider-Man and Venom Villain, Carnage is Back!
After a short-lived death during Marvel’s Venomized series, Carnage will be returning in the November one-shot, Web of Venom: Carnage Born. And who better to write the story than current Venom writer Donny Cates? The Venom/Thanos/Death of Inhumans/Cosmic Ghost Rider writer will team with artist Danilo Beyruth for the one-shot.
Cates on Web of Venom: Carnage Born:
“When I was a little kid, my mom used to drop me off at the YMCA to be babysat while she was at work,” Cates tells ComicBook.com. “So naturally I would just sneak away down to the comic book store across the street. The store was called JT’s comics in Garland, Texas, and it was there I first met Venom. And it was ALSO there that I read the scariest comic book I’d ever read. It was called Carnage: Mind Bomb (written by Warren Ellis with art by the incomparable Kyle Hotz!) and boy, oh boy, if you haven’t read it, make sure you get thee to a comic book store and check it out. But read it with the lights on, because it will mess you up, man. It is brutal. And insane. And brilliant. It was there that the character of Carnage bloomed for me as a fan. He’s been my favorite bad guy ever since, and to be able to write him is such a huge treat. And to my utter delight, KYLE HOTZ has come back to Carnage to give us our cover!! How’s that for full circle! I am a very lucky Venomaniac.”
The Carnage symbiote was last seen in the Amazing Spider-Man series when Norman Osborn merged with the symbiote and became the deadly Red Goblin.
