Minimum Carnage Alpha #1 – 1:25 Mark Bagley Variant – December 2012
Happy New Year's Ladies and Gentlemen, and welcome to the first Covers from the Unknown for the New Year! While 2016 had it's ups and downs, in terms of the hobby, I believe one of the main characters of the year was Venom! With that being said, it seems like some of his “heat” bled over to Carnage as well. So, take a combo of that, and I give you Minimum Carnage Alpha #1, the 1:25 Mark Bagley variant, which came out in December 2012. I have always been a big fan of the Bagley Spidey era. He had some amazing art with Venom and Spidey. This was a no brainer for me. Carnage, Venom, and the Scarlet Spider, all on one cover. I have always thought that the Carnage series were always overlooked, and are finally starting to see a little uptick.
These are very rare on the ‘bay, yet, if you take a look on another retailer website, you may come across a few of these for a decent price. With a print run of 37k, and being a 1:25, you are looking at about 1400 of these out there. I do believe these will disappear rather quickly, and it will end up being a $75+ variant. This has a perfect mix of heroes and a great artist.
Happy Hunting Fellas!
