    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Feb 21, 2022

    Carnage Forever #1delivers both a great stand-alone horror story, as well as an intriguing setup for the character's future. While I would deem this a definite pick-up for any Carnage fans out there, I would say the first story is good enough that even horror comics fans not interested in Carnage may want to give this book a look.

    After readingCarnage Forever #1, it is obvious that Marvel has big upcoming plans for the character. It makes sense since we are entering the 30th anniversary of Carnage. Hopefully, the upcoming series will allow Carnage to become more of a mainstay within the regular Marvel universe. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 21, 2022

    If Carnage Forever #1 is any indication, we're about to enter an age of extreme horror and adult content with everyone's second favorite Symbiote. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if in a year Carnage edges out Venom for many since this new wilder version of Carnage is about to begin. There's a new threat coming onto the scene in 2022 and Carnage is even more unhinged and feral than most will expect. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Anthony Trudeau Feb 21, 2022

    Like most any one-shot, Carnage Forever is not essential reading. It is good, however, and fans of the character will appreciate Johnson's horror yarn. Newcomers or readers curious about the ultraviolent alien's post-"Absolute Carnage" fate can preview his next chapter, which will also be by Ram V. Read Full Review

    Anyone interested in the overall concept of Carnage and less invested Kletus Caday will surely be entertained with the book, while those who are already exciting for the new Carnage series will have even more chaos to sink their teeth into. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Feb 24, 2022

    Final Thoughts:Carnage Forever #1 tells a couple of good dark stories with Carnage to celebrate the character. The first story is good, but the others feel more like backups, so mileage will vary. The artwork and colors for the first two stories are good all around, so readers can expect Carnage in the book to look good. Read Full Review

    While disturbing on the surface, what exactly was meant to be achieved in this prelude one-shot to an upcoming series remains unclear by its end. Read Full Review
