Earlier this morning, The Outhouse, you home for fair and balanced hate, received a press release from Marvel announcing a new Carnage limited series, Superior Carnage, by “Kevin Shinick (Avenging Spider-Man, Robot Chicken) and Stephen Segovia (X-treme X-Men, Thor)” and was quickly ignored by everyone with access to the email account.
- “Who the fuck cares?” asked Jude Terror
- “What's a 'Carnage'?” Xaraan asked
- “Ugh, more Marvel Spider-Man garbage!” ThanosCopter yelled before heading off to Aurba for a non deserved vacation.
But, as the day wore on and nothing was coming out of the “real” news sites and nothing in the news after 10:00 am was interesting enough to maintain our attention long enough to steal it and the writers room drew straws in order to find out who had to write this up.
Carnage is in prison (because that always works out so well) and is being experimented on (another good idea) by a bunch of idiots who want to make a “more dastardly, more sinister, more superior Carnage” (Is The Walking Dead’s Andrea working for Marvel now?)
This is a Carnage story that will send shivers down the backs of anyone who reads it,” explained Sana Amanat, Editor, Marvel Entertainment. “What Kevin and Stephen have planned for the character is unlike any Carnage story that’s come before it, and surely will be one that will have fans demanding more of when it’s all said and done. Want to know why people love Carnage so much? Jump on here.
“…unlike any Carnage story that’s come before” I guess we can hope that means good, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
New York, NY—April 3rd , 2012— This July, the red-hot creative team of writer Kevin Shinick (Avenging Spider-Man, Robot Chicken) and Stephen Segovia (X-treme X-Men, Thor) unleash a supercharged new beast into the world of Superior Spider-Man with Superior Carnage #1! This five issue limited series, launching during Superior Spider-Month, gives fans a whole new look into the world of Superior Spider-Man – great for new and lapsed readers alike!
The homicidal villain, Carnage, is deteriorating in the confines of his asylum—but his fellow inmates are not giving up just yet! Watch as their Frankenstein-style experiment unfolds for better or for worse. Can they restore the deadliest of the symbiotes to its former glory, or better yet, do they have what it takes to build a more dastardly, more sinister, more superior Carnage?
“This is a Carnage story that will send shivers down the backs of anyone who reads it,” explained Sana Amanat, Editor, Marvel Entertainment. “What Kevin and Stephen have planned for the character is unlike any Carnage story that’s come before it, and surely will be one that will have fans demanding more of when it’s all said and done. Want to know why people love Carnage so much? Jump on here.”
But with a catatonic Kasady, who will emerge? The Beast or the Man?
“I'm really excited to be working on Superior Carnage. It's very rare that you can say the words "Like you've never seen him before!" and truly mean it,” explains Shinick. “But Stephen and I have been working on some great designs for what happens when the Wizard attempts to turn Carnage into an agent of evil the way the Avengers converted Venom for good! Plus now that Cletus Kasady has essentially been lobotomized, readers (and the Wizard) are going to encounter a monster very different from what they were expecting.”
This July, Shinick and Segovia restore life and grotesque brutality to one of Spider-Man’s greatest threats in Superior Carnage #1!

About the Author - GHERU
RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
