Carnage is coming.
Ahead of Marvel's latest summer event Absolute Carnage, series artist Ryan Stegman shared a new page from issue #1. On Twitter, the artist posted a new, text-less page from the series, along with a warning that fans simply will not want to miss Absolute Carnage.
"FOC for Absolute Carnage is today," Stegman wrote, reminding his followers that this is the final day to order issue #1 from comic shops. "I’m warning you, do not miss it. When I say I’m warning you, I mean I’m threatening you. Order it...or else," he joked.
The artist's page teases the highly anticipated fight between Cletus Kasady's Carnage and Eddie Brock's Venom.

For the past few months, Eddie Brock and the symbiote have been separated after the alien parasite was left a broken shell during their fight with Knull, the god of the symbiotes. Both characters fought separately during the War of the Realms event, and now the symbiote is once again connected to the Klyntar hive mind. Though they are still on their own, they are bound to reconnect soon, as Absolute Carnage kicks off.
In the biggest Venom storyline yet, the Lethal Protector's sinister spawn Carnage is on a mission to recover the codexes left behind inside every character that has ever bonded with a symbiote, so that he can summon the symbiote god Knull. Venom will have to team with friends and foes alike in order to prevent Carnage from succeeding in his deadly plot -- all brought to you by the dynamite duo of Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman!
Writer Donny Cates and artist Ryan Stegman's Absolute Carnage #1 goes on sale Aug. 7 from Marvel Comics.
