    Nice Spidey-Shellhead team-up. Disappointing if you expected to see Carnage though. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - George Chimples Oct 26, 2010

    In all honesty, I'll probably still buy the next issue just to see where it goes, but I can't really recommend this book to casual fans. Carnage #1 contains seven mispronunciations of the word mother, three suits of power armor, one instance of Tony Stark getting the bird, one instance of web-swinging while eating breakfast cereal, and one angry mob. There are 8 thwips, 6 snkts, 2 screees, 2 thwaps, 1 thwip and 1 zzzzzark. 2 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review
