Spurned by its longtime host, the Carnage symbiote has undertaken a quest to push the boundaries of itself and its understanding further than ever before. But as seen in the visceral pages of CARNAGE #10, CLETUS KASADY himself hasn't been sitting idly by either. Bound to an all-new type of symbiote, the EXTREMBIOTE, Cletus has a whole new array of deadly abilities - that he's eager to put to a bloody and brutal test!

    On its own, Carnage #12 doesn't do anything all that thrilling, but it's a great appetizer for what's to come. Read Full Review

    Carnage #12 brings things to a head as the serial killer Kenneth Neely is now partnered up with Cletus Kasady who's just as much of a wild card as his symbiote counterpart. The art from Francesco Manna and Erick Arciniega's colors continue to be a strength for this series in depicting both Carnage and Cletus Kasady in his new symbiote form. Sadly, the portion with Carnage and Detective Shayde continues to be the low point of this comic, while the better parts are with Kasady and Neely as murder and mayhem ensue. Readers who still like what they see here can follow the continuation of this story in the title Carnage Reigns Alpha. Read Full Review
