I've never had a particular affinity for Carnage as a character. However, I have always enjoyed his design. The way he seemed like a much more raw version of Venom, and that stark red and black color scheme made him that much more of demented take on Spider-Man. The gaping maw and tendrils exploding in every direction always caught my eye, and truly presented a terrifying presence. Sideshow's captured all of that grotesque design and more with its Carnage Premium Format Figure, making it a shocking tribute to Spider-Man's most unpredictable foe.
When you think of Lin-Manuel Miranda, what do you think of? Hamilton? Moana? A Twitter feed full of positive and encouraging thoughts? The Spider-Man villain Carnage?

Ahead of Brazil's Comic Con Experience event in Sao Paulo, Iron Studios and the convention have revealed one of the official posters for the event. The poster, by Rafael Albuquerque, features Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen going up against two of the biggest Spider-foes, Venom and Carnage, on the Brooklyn Bridge. Ordinarily this would be a cool print in and of itself, but it's also providing the inspiration for Iron Studios' next statue series.
Sideshow Collectibles doesn't often venture to New York Comic Con, but when it does, the company manages to roll out more than enough surprises for fans. While the booth at NYCC was decidedly smaller than that at San Diego Comic-Con --- which was a bit of a relief, to be honest --- that doesn't mean there weren't some great new statues and figures on display. This NYCC in particular was especially good for Sideshow's Premium Format Figure line, which debuted a half-dozen new pieces.
