Four issues into the Carnage event of the summer and the bodies just keep piling up - including some of the Venomaniacs the Mighty Marveldom know and love! But now is not a time to mourn for fallen heroes (or their symbiotes). CARNAGE is on the loose, and he's building an army...

    Good pacing and even. Kept a jovial take while introducing the dark, more emotional side. It's like "Pennywise", funny/goofy but you can't help but know he will eat you. That's the emotion carried throughout the comic. Read Full Review

    Extreme Carnage: Lasheris another good issue in a one-shot event well worth checking out. It features all our favorite Symbiotes in a more horror-centric way and isn't pulling any punches. This issue clearly aims to mix things up and develop the Symbiote world and it frankly feels like this side of the Marvel universe needed it. Extreme Carnage continues to be a great injection of horror and action into the colorful world of Symbiotes. Read Full Review

    LASHER #1 was a fun read and, although action-packed, does leave me wondering when the stories will link up. With the next issue introducing RIOT to the fray 5 issues into this 8 issue run, my hopes are that the story becomes more centred to avoid the climax feeling rushed. That being said, I still enjoyed my time with this issue and would recommend it to readers who enjoyed previous symbiote events. Read Full Review

    The Extreme Carnage event has had a lot of good moments but suffer from a lot of characters that don't always feel necessary at the moment they are introduced. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 1, 1970

    Extreme Carnage: Lasher #1 has great action but is lacking something special. A lot is going on within the issue, and yet some parts feel stale. More Symbiotes are joining the fray, and that may be the problem. It doesnt feel like each one has been given a distinct voice and personality, so they have begun to be interchangeable.

    The only facet of Extreme Carnage that remains interesting is the choice to drag out so many undeveloped and unwanted characters because that is truly inexplicable. Read Full Review
