In a Willy Wonka-Golden Ticket-esque twist, Marvel Comics have revealed that 20 copies of August 7's Absolute Carnage #1 contain an original sketch by Carnage co-creator Mark Bagley.

On the inside back cover of these 20 copies, the Axe/Freshman ad has been replaced with this framed design in which Bagley drew in sketches.

One of the sketches has apparently already popped up online:

Marvel is encouraging readers to post photos of any found copies using the hashtags #absolutecarnage and #carnagerules. And while the campaign seems intended to activate interest in the title on social media it'll be interesting to observe what if any effect it will have on the collector's aftermarket for the 20 issues, assuming they're ever found.
