Following the success of Wolverine’s latest series by the same name, a new Marvel Comics miniseries titled Carnage: Black, White & Blood is coming from Marvel Comics in 2021!
Running for four issues, Carnage: Black, White & Blood will be written by Donny Cates (Venom, King in Black), Benjamin Percy (X-Force, Wolverine) and Tini Howard (Excalibur, X of Swords) with artists Sara Pichelli (Fantastic Four, Spider-Men II) and Ken Lashley (Friendly-Neighborhood Spider-Man, X-Men Gold) are tackling Cletus Kasady and his alien symbiote, not for the faint of heart.
In an exclusive interview with CBR, writer Benjamin Percy had this to say about the upcoming title:
“Carnage is a hell of a character. One of the most terrifying villains in comics. When Marvel reached out to me about contributing to this Black, White, & Blood collection, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. My heart is poisonous after all. And my brain is a twisting ball of centipedes. So he’s someone readymade for my foul handiwork. I was immediately drawn to the freedom of writing out of continuity. I grew up in the West. I’ve always been obsessed with westerns. In my former life, I was a professor, and I used to teach a graduate course called (re)Writing the West. So that’s where my mind instantly gravitated…. what if Carnage were alive back then? In frontier times? Wouldn’t he become an outlaw more infamous even than a Billy the Kid or Jesse James? Indeed, he would. And that was the first dark seed of the story I’ll be telling.”
Artist Ken Lashley added to Percy’s remarks:
“When you get the chance to work on a character like Carnage it’s a very fast ‘YES’ … and this story is a dream come true for any artist. Working with the best writing talent in the biz is a plus as well. I can’t wait to show what we have created. It’s not what people would expect, it’s super exciting.”
