    It wasn't exactly timely and it wasn't exactly sunny, but Karnak #6 ends its run as it began, as a darkly funny, beautifully drawn, and sometimes troubling exploration of one of Marvel's most enigmatic figures. As Warren Ellis aims to unleash a Wild Storm on us all, he ends his time with Marvel with an biting and weird Strange Tales-like story of his own, one set just on the fringes of the 616 in the dark areas no one likes to talk about. Though he was just a linchpin in a line wide event, Karnak #6 shows that his everyday life is so much more complicated. Read Full Review

    A dark, twisted and strangely lovable character: Karnak is at the end of it's six issue run and it was really a masterpiece, albeit very left-field from the typical kind of Marvel book. Gritty and visually stunning artwork captures the book very well, and Warren Ellis certainly knows how to write a character, although his style may not be to everyone's taste. This book was nihilistic, questioning and boundary pushing in many respects. Looking at the boundaries of what a hero is and how far you are prepared to go for what you believe (or against what you don't). For anyone who wants a weird, dark, but contained and thoroughly unique Marvel comic I'd look no further than this: the 'Flaw in all Things.'This book has had a lot of trouble with t more

    I'm a big Inhuman fan. Of the Inhumans, Karnak has long been a favorite (along with Black Bolt, of course). I'm also a big fan of Warren Ellis. So, taking this into account, KARNAK #6 should have been a home run of a hit for me. Unfortunately, long delays between issues killed the momentum of this series. Additionally, as a singular issue, KARNAK #6 could not support its own ideas wothout benifit of having read the previous five issues. KARNAK (the series), in its six issue entirety, was a deep, dark exploration of my favorite Inhuman but issue #6, as a comic, read without benefit of its preceding issues, is lacking. I'm not a fan of trade-waiting but would definitely suggest reading all six issues of KARNAK, in a sitting, to truly more

    Karnak confronts Adam and finds the young reality warper's flaw. Is the victory thanks to Karnak's skill, or was it Adam's gift to him? Warren Ellis presents Karnak as a big ball of repressed shame and jealousy over missing out on Terrigenesis. Is that deep or shallow? The sketchy "Alex Maleev crossed with Mike Deodato" art is a hindrance rather than a help and a major factor in making this issue (as well as the whole title) rather forgettable.
