    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jan 13, 2021

    When all is said and done Gwenom vs Carnage #1 delivers a great start for its story. The final pages deliver a twist I never saw coming, and I cannot wait to see where the story goes from here. Read Full Review

    Gwenom vs. Carnage is yet another example of how the tie-in books are where the best stories are in this event. The creative team is firing on all cylinders here with a fast-paced action book with a great voice for its main character. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jan 22, 2021

    King in Black: Gwenom vs. Carnage is a standout for this event. It does what few tie-ins can, by using the big points to further a story about the character and not just shoehorn it into things. I sincerely hope we get to see more from Ghost-Spider after this because there are so many cool possibilities here. This book is scary, personal, and downright awesome. Read Full Review

    You can always tell when a creative team gels and fits perfectly together, this is one of those teams! An uncontested championship team of solid writing, art, and lettering. Even after Knull is defeated and things return to normal, Marvel should keep this team together on everything Ghost-Spider. Read Full Review

    Overall, Gwenom vs. Carnage was quite enjoyable. From the story and tone, and tempo. The art is on point. This could well be a turning point for the Spider-Gwen character. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jan 13, 2021

    Fans of Ghost-Spider who were disappointed with the abrupt ending of the series will lap this up. For readers coming solely from the King in Black event it answers the question of what Gwen is up to, as well as being more symbiote goodness. The twist ending promises plenty of excitement in the next issue. With King in Black it feels like Marvel are getting the tie-in issues just right. Read Full Review

    If you are on board for these characters already I would consider it, everyone else is going to wonder what the hell is going on. Not so good for the first part of a story. Read Full Review
