Marvel is launching a new ongoing title for the Venom offspring Scream - but the identity of the symbiote's host is a mystery. In Scream: Curse of Carnage launching this November, writer Clay McCleod Chapman and artist Chris Mooneyham are spinning off the Scream symbiote from the current Absolute Carnage and Scream tie-in books.
"The aftemath of Absolute Carnage starts here in November. The original and possibly strongest offspring of the Venom symbiote at last stars in her own self-titled ongoing series set in the Marvel Universe," announced Marvel's Tucker Markus on Pull List. "But after the events of Absolute Carnage, who is the Scream symbiote bonded to? What are their intentions? And what will a pair of web-slinging wall-crawlers, Venom and Spider-Man... what will they have to say about their presence in New York?"
In the current Absolute Carnage: Scream limited series, the former She-Venom Patricia Robertson has taken on the Scream name and symbiote.
Scream: Curse of Carnage #1 is scheduled to debut this November.
