Marvel teased this event at Wondercon earlier this year but has kept pretty damn quiet about it up until yesterdays The Amazing Spider-Man panel at Comic-Con. This upcoming event will kick off with Minimum Carnage: Alpha this October and then run through Venom and Scarlet Spider. The story will see Carnage escape into the Micro-verse, as the two heroes pursue him. Cullen Bunn and Chris Yost will handle writing duties in the prologue before the story moves into the two titles.
“Carnage is the worst case scenario for both Venom and Scarlet Spider,” Bunn said. “For Kane, it’s all about how terrible a killer can be. And for Venom, it’s how terrible a symbiote can be. This is a situation for various reasons that only Venom and Scarlet Spider can deal with Carnage…it isn’t a thing where Peter Parker can swing in and save them.”
If you haven’t been reading Venom or Scarlet Spider you should be. These are both awesome titles and I am really looking forward to see where they go with this crossover event.
