Absolute Carnage is already one of Marvel Comics’ biggest releases of 2019, but now readers have an even bigger incentive to buy the first issue. Marvel is hiding hand-drawn Carnage sketches inside copies of Absolute Carnage #1.Lucky winners will find this card to the inside back cover of Absolute Carnage #1, featuring a one-of-a-kind sketch from veteran Marvel artist (and Carnage co-creator) Mark Bagley:
A grand total of 20 sketches have been randomly inserted into first-print copies of Absolute Carnage #1. For those not lucky enough to find a sketch, Marvel has set up a website and is promoting the hashtag #CarnageRules so winners can post their sketches online.
Absolute Carnage is Marvel’s latest crossover event, one that forces Venom and Spider-man to team up with a wide range of Marvel heroes and villains to fight back against an even deadlier Carnage. Carnage’s goal is to kill and consume everyone who’s ever bonded with a symbiote, in the hope of freeing his twisted god Knull from his cosmic prison.
