I think the Carnage Venom fans are but non Carnage/ Venom fans seem to have no interest in the event here at all. I’m getting bundled orders for AC.
THE GREATEST TALENT EVER ASSEMBLED FOR ONE STORY!
THIS IS THE BIG ONE! In celebration of Marvel’s 80th Anniversary, we have gathered together the greatest array of talent ever to be assembled between the covers of a single comic book! Names from the past, from the present, and even the future! Every page is filled with all-new work from this cavalcade of comic book luminaries!
Sounds like it should have a broader appeal, something from everyone for everyone aspect.
There is a mystery that threads throughout the Marvel Universe - one that has its origins in MARVEL COMICS #1 and which unites a disparate array of heroes and villains throughout the decades! What is the Eternity Mask, and who is responsible for the conspiracy to keep it hidden? And what new player will make their startling debut as these secrets are peeled away?
Spec potential as well. I’m expecting nothing spec in Absolute Carnage.
I’m also thinking the $9.99 price keeps other spec buyers chasing AC but when’s the last time Marvel delivered anything of spec value in a #1 for a series or mini? #3 maybe, sometimes #2 but they figure they’re going to sell a ton of #1’s anyway so the hold the best for later issues. It feels like MC1000 due to the price needs something to give it that extra push to get ordered so maybe they do what they took the time to say they were going to do. Bendis did leave after all so unfulfilled promises are now a DC thing.
Living on the edge!!!
