Updated August 30, 2019: Absolute Carnage: Avengers #1 has been re-scheduled for an October 16 debut. Originlly solicited to hit stands September 16, Marvel informed retailers about the schedule change earlier this week.

This comes a few weeks after retailers were told that a co-writer, Zac Thompson, was added to the book alongside original series writer Leah Williams.

Original story from August 8, 2019: Absolute Carnage: Avengers #1 will now include contributions from writer Zac Thompson, as announced in Marvel Comics' weekly retailer newsletter.
