Years ago, Patricia Robertson was unwillingly bonded to the clone of Venom that eventually became Mania, and she's been living in fear of symbiotes ever since. But she's also been living with a secret, and with the coming of Carnage, Patricia must take a stand - and will have no choice but to confront her demons head-on!

    There are genuinely compelling characters and fun artistic flourishes throughout this first issue, enough to have me give the second installment a chance. Read Full Review

    The comic is good but not great. There's a reliance on knowing two characters and without that, it lacks the punch to really sell the issue. Still, as it progresses the action will likely be the draw and hopefully more explained. Absolute Carnage: Scream #1 is an interesting piece of the bigger puzzle but doesn't quite stand on its own yet. Read Full Review

    I'm happy to have Scream back, but this was not an interesting read. I can imagine how other readers who have no inclination towards a semi-obscure character (two characters if you count Scream and Patricia Robertson separately) might feel reading this. Maybe we'll actually get deeper into Patricia's head with the following two issues, but as of right now, Bunn brought back two forgotten characters in a forgettable fashion. Read Full Review

    A compelling introduction and some fantastic art are the only things holding back this Absolute Carnage tie-in from being completely forgettable. Read Full Review

    Absolute Carnage: Scream pays a lot of lip service to redefining the women who have hosted the symbiote in the past, but ultimately it doesn't do anything unique with that opportunity. Read Full Review
