Marvel Comics kicking off ‘Extreme Carnage Alpha’ #1 this July

‘Extreme Carnage Alpha’ is written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has announced a new series by Phillip Kennedy Johnson that’ll feature the evilest Symbiote there is–sorry Knull–with Extreme Carnage Alpha #1! Johnson has been blowing up at Marvel of late having launched their first Marvel original series Alien last week with artist Salvador Larroca. If Extreme Carnage Alpha is anything like Alien it’ll likely sell out too.

So what’s it about?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

The Life Foundation symbiotes have always tried to reconcile the sometimes-noble intentions of their hosts with the often-bloodthirsty impulses of the symbiotes. But the Life Foundation symbiotes aren’t the only symbiotes who find themselves reinvented after KING IN BLACK and Carnage has plans for his younger siblings.

“After King in Black, everything we thought we knew about the symbiotes will have changed. Every man, woman, and child in the Marvel Universe will finally understand the massive threat the symbiotes represent, and the symbiotes that are still among us are now in the crosshairs of some extremely angry, scared, and powerful forces,” Johnson explained via press release. “In the pages of EXTREME CARNAGE, we’ll not only explain what Carnage is in this new, post-King in Black era, but also see a return-to-form for the deadliest symbiotes that have ever lived while putting them on a lethal new path for the future.”

The artist has yet to be revealed, but check out the teaser art by Lienil Francis Yu and Sunny Gho below. Who is the classified Symbiote? Likely someone revealed at the end of King in Black!
