FOR YEARS, the only host the dangerous CARNAGE symbiote knew was CLETUS KASADY. Sharing a bond unique even among symbiotes and their hosts, the two were the most notorious and prolific serial killers in the Marvel Universe. But after the events of EXTREME CARNAGE, Cletus' codex has found a new home, leaving the Carnage symbiote adrift, alone... and deadlier than ever before!

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 27, 2022

    Ram V and Francesco Manna's Carnage is turning out to be an interesting look at the strikingly different personalities of the two people embroiled in Carnage's path. Carnage #2 introduces a duality that's intriguing while offering a police procedural to stop a supervillain from getting stronger. All along the way, we're witnessing a character evolve in real-time which is so rare in serial comics it's hard to not cheer it on and ask for more. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Apr 27, 2022

    Carnage #2 continues the Carnage symbiote's dark journey with a couple of tag-alongs. The comic is a little light on the horror but it explores this sense of dark “transformation” between all three characters in several ways that will continue in the next issue. The art from Francesco Manna with Dijjo Lima's colors continue to make the comic look great. Read Full Review
