Marvel Comics has announced that it is set to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Carnage with the launch of a new ongoing series from writer Ram V and artist Francesco Manna, which will see the murderous symbiote seeking a new bond after separating from his longtime host, the serial killer Cletus Kasady.
“This Carnage story is very likely to become the most twisted thing I’ve written,” states Ram V. “The killer symbiote has gone through some pretty significant changes in recent times and I’ve been left with an opportunity to do something new and inventive with the character and the kind of stories you might expect to find in a Carnage book. This is my kind of horror– as frightening in its implications as it is on the page. This is a devilish, scary Carnage and he’s setting out to discover just where the bounds of his abilities really lie. Pity those caught in his wake. The Marvel Universe is not ready for what Carnage is turning into.”
Carnage #1 will go on sale in March 2022, following the 30th anniversary anth0logy one shot Carnage Forever in February.
