On the occasion of the theatrical release of Venom: Carnage’s Fury, Panini Comics presents the comics to read before going to see the film, so as to get to know the most lethal of the serial killers of the Marvel Universe. The fusion between the symbiote and the psychopath Cletus Kasady has created one of the most famous and fearsome villains in history, as also confirmed by the comics.
These comics may very well be read both before and after the movie, which we remember having a very important post credit scene, so that we can better understand how director Andy Serkis has transposed this important character. The work done by the actor Woody Harrelson underlines even more the danger of this enemy, which is a real war machine.
The famous red symbiont officially made its debut in 1992, quickly establishing himself as one of the most loved and feared villains in the Marvel comics, without ever having a monthly publication of his own. That was until the event was initiated Secret Wars, which led screenwriter Gerry Conway and artist Mike Perkins to create Carnage: Massacre, volume available at this link, which sees Eddie Brock as the host of the Carnage-born symbiote, aka Toxin.
If you want to see all the facets of the birth of Carnage, in addition to the official clip of the film Panini offers you I am Carnage, a rich anthological volume in large format, which offers some of the most famous and important stories. The volume, available at this link, sees the first contact between serial killer Cletus Kasady and the alien symbiote, brought to Earth unconsciously by Spider-Man.
Last but not least, is the volume Spider-Man vs. Carnage, where some of the most famous stories of the red symbiote are collected, signed by its creators David Michelinie and Mark Bagley and by authors of the caliber of Tom DeFalco, Joe Bennett and Steven Butler. Inside the volume, available at this link, the first appearance of the famous villain is also present, directly from the pages of Amazing Spider-Man 361.
We just have to wish you happy reading with these comics to read before, or after, the vision of Venom: Carnage’s Fury, from today in Italian cinemas.
