Liz Allen is the mother of Normie Osborn, who she is blissfully unaware is the all-new and all-deadly RED GOBLIN! But what Liz DOES know is that the Red Goblin has been active and has been seen VERY close to her home. And after her late husband's father, NORMAN OSBORN (maybe you've heard of him?), gets pulled into the chaos and violence swirling around Normie, Liz has no choice but to use the resources at her disposal as the head of ALCHEMAX to take matters into her own hands and become something the Marvel Universe has NEVER SEEN BEFORE!

    Cult of Carnage: Misery #1is a great debut for Liz Allen's new status quo. While it may pose as a difficult jumping on point for readers unfamiliar with her history, that doesn't change the fact that this book has strong emotional and genre themes coupled by great art and greater action.

    AIPT - David Brooke May 3, 2023

    Cult of Carnage: Misery #1 is an excellent start to what could be a unique new Symbiote in a sea of Symbiotes who are mostly the same, save for their color. The creators set things up beautifully, making you care about a C-List character while establishing the need for a mother to rise up and protect her kids, even if it takes a Symbiote to do it.

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker May 3, 2023

    Cult of Carnage: Misery #1 finally gives Liz Allen a comic of her own. Since her father-in-law and even her son have been given titles, it is only fair that she gets the spotlight shone on her too. She is powerful in her own right and Pirzada captures the chaos and the spectrum of disasters happening to her, before ramping it up even further. Read Full Review

  • 3.0 - Chase Magnett May 3, 2023

    The exposition and storytelling is certainly competent throughout, but without answering the question of "why" it's difficult to recommend Cult of Carnage: Misery even to readers who are all in on this corner of Marvel Comics. Read Full Review
