    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings May 5, 2021

    Carnage: Black, White & Blood#3 continues to spread the menace of Carnage across different genres, courtesy of various creators. With only one issue left, I can't wait to see who else gets to put their own spin on Carnage and if other characters in Marvel's stable will get the Black, White & Blood treatment. Personally, my fingers are crossed for a Blade series in the same vein. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson May 5, 2021

    Carnage: Black, White & Blood #3 is a solid collection of three short stories. The other two stories are solid in their own rights but the standout is "No Survivors" by Dan Slott and Greg Smallwood. It is an incredible psychological thriller of a short story, something that will stick with you for a while after reading it. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 5, 2021

    This is yet another good issue ofCarnage: Black, White & Blood. The quality of talent mixed with clever smaller story ideas makes for a delightful time with one of the most psychotic characters ever put to the page. It's sad to know this is the second to last issue, but it's good to see every story comes at this character with exciting and fresh approaches. This is about as exciting as comics can get, with every page turn offering new surprises, shocks, and stories to boot. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 3, 2021

    Carnage: Black, White & Blood is a solid anthology through and through. Its focus on such a terrifying character makes for some crazy stories and this issue is a perfect example of that. I hope we get to see much more of these kind of books in the near future as the Marvel Universe embraces horror. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods May 6, 2021

    Carnage: Black, White & Blood #3 shows some more bloody stories with Carnage as the star. Some are better than others, the art is all around pretty good and really compliments the stories they're illustrated for. It's not better than the second issue, but it's a nice read if you like Carnage stories. Read Full Review

    This wasn't a bad collection of stories. Dan Slott's story was my favorite, but the other two were original, to varying degrees of effectiveness.

    The first 2 stories were pretty good. The 3rd one was a little more funny and not as good but, enjoyable. This, overall, still better than the 1st issue by alot but, last issue was best. Plus, anything that has Greg Smallwood is always great.

    I liked Slott's story, a good tale of paranoia.

    The second story was alright, but it had great artwork.

    The third was weak but not bad.

    I love the first strip, which deftly pivots from Carnage's usual "blood and guts" MO to craft a neat vignette of psychological horror. I like the second strip, which recasts a Venom/Carnage fight as a piratical sea-battle in a "yo ho ho" vein. But I get the sense that the creators of that strip know pirate stories (and sea shanties) more from cultural osmosis than in-depth familiarity with them. The final strip puts Carnage on the side of angels (accidentally) when he slaughters some murderous fanboys at a comic con. There are some solid ideas there, but the execution feels rough-draft-y. And that strip fulfils this series' ripoff mandate by being a little too reminiscent of the classic "Corinthian crashes a serial killer convention" story more

    Nothing too memorable. I hated that high seas one. The comic-con read made up for it in realistic creepiness that had my mind wandering after I closed the book. I love that feeling, especially when I'm getting it from a book instead of a film. That's a rarity. And saved the book ultimately since I cant even remember the first story and the second one should have stayed on the cutting room floor.

    The first story was pretty good but the other two just weren't for me personally. Hopefully others enjoyed it but I wasn't really into this one
