Carnage is hunting down previous symbiote hosts for codices that will unlock a direct link to the symbiote god Knull! And he's not asking nicely...he's taking them by force! Which means former Ghost Rider Alejandra Jones is next on his hit list!
With Johnny Blaze preoccupied as Hell's king, it's up to Danny Ketch to ride again and keep Alejandra out of Carnage's clutches!!!

    Carnage's fluidity meets flame in this fun one-shot that'll have Ghost Rider fans itching for the upcoming reboot in October. Check this out for the great action and design, but stay for the hints at what is to come from the Spirit of Vengeance.  Read Full Review

    Its ending is somewhat predictable and feels like it's more concerned with setting the table for a separate Ghost Rider book, but writer Ed Brisson gets a ton of fun out of Carnage as a Ghost Rider (complete with a Carnage Cycle) and there's plenty of dark humour spread throughout.

    Again, this is not too important for those keeping track of Absolute Carnage, but if you just want extra content, this issue was one of the better tie-ins. By the book's conclusion this issue serves a little more as a lead-in for the upcoming Ghost Riders title, so if you are a fan of Johnny Blaze, Danny Ketch, etc., you can treat this as a teaser.

    Absolute Carnage: Symbiote of Vengeance is a comic that you read quickly and generally forget. It's entertaining but doesn't stand out a whole bunch. The comic feels like it'll become important down the line once Ghost Rider #1 is released. Stealthy is the best way to describe it all. Read Full Review

    Whether this was that calculated a move or not, Absolute Carnage: Symbiote of Vengeance will absolutely appeal to fans of both Ghost Rider and Carnage, and as far as tie-in comics often go, that's victory enough. Read Full Review
