    Francesco Mobili delivers some stunning art in this issue. The art style is perfect for the dark tone of this story and Mobili delivers some genuine anxiety with the depiction of Carnage. Read Full Review

    This is a good done in one tale that tells a heartfelt and very real story. It's about an average Joe's life and how a little bad luck can send everything crashing down. Read Full Review

It's a squarely mediocre read for what it is, but is for hardcore continuity cops and event completists only. Read Full Review
