Be there when the Marvel Universe gets a glimpse of its newest protector in AXIS: CARNAGE #1 – hitting comic shops and digital devices this October!
I, uh… wha?
Yep, as weird as it might seem, Carnage is making a face turn. Maybe. I can’t imagine the little lunatic staying on the side of the right and the just for all that long. I mean, the dude rips people in half for fun, that’s not all that superhero-y now is it.
Strange as it is, it’s just as cool and I’m really digging the way that Axis is swapping the Marvel Universe, no matter how temporary it might be. Just like the last few big Marvel Events (with the exception of Age of Ultron), Axis just has that feel of a big old classic Marvel ‘event’. Well, it does for me anyway and I’m a huge fan of the publisher’s older event books like Infinity Gauntlet and just about all of the X-crossovers.
And as those crossovers go, this is gonna be an interesting one. Carnage- a hero? Find out how true that statement might be when Axis: Carnage #1 hits the racks on October 29th form the team of Rick Spears and German Peralta.
