OUT OF THE ASHES OF ABSOLUTE CARNAGE!
ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES!
Patricia Robertson, Andi Benton, Donna Diego... it's all been leading to this as one of the original - and possibly strongest - offspring of the Venom symbiote at last stars in her own, self-titled ongoing series set in the Marvel Universe! But after the events of ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, what remains of the Scream symbiote as it was before? Does it even have a host?  What are their intentions? And what will a pair of web-slinging wallcrawlers have to say about it's presence in New York?

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 26, 2019

    This is a strong first issue that has a dark tone and an unflinching horror underbelly. From the art to the story, this book somehow feels like a blast from the past and it's mature in its approach. This is a dark and mature take on a hero that blurs the line between horror and heroics.  Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Blair Dec 2, 2019

    A little sluggish and drawn out in places, but offset by some great horror artwork and thematic material perfect for a Venom book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Nov 28, 2019

    I hope the semi-obscurity of the title character doesn't scare anyone away, because right out the gate, this book is proving it has merits to give both Andi Benton and Scream every right to be leading character(s) in this new title. Even if you aren't a Venom/symbiote fan, give this a try. It deserves a read! Don't know who the hell Scream is? Get to know her here! Read Full Review

    Rogues Portal - Nico Sprezzatura Nov 27, 2019

    A book like Scream: Curse of Carnage requires a darker, horror-inspired tone, which I think Mooneyham really nails, accented by Rain Beredo's brooding colors that pop when Andi transforms into Scream mode. If there's any reason to check out this comic, I'd recommend it for the art alone. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Nov 27, 2019

    A promising start, if nothing outstanding, to a new series. Time will tell whether it’ll be good or simply a cash in on Venoms success, in the meantime good art and colors make it worth picking up. I have high hopes though. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Nov 27, 2019

    Overall there were some good elements in here that I eventually wanted to see, but not t right now. A lot of the stuff felt kinda crammed in, which resulted in a very difficult to detect narrative story structure, but I will allow it due to the fact that I can see what it is trying to set up. All that to say that this is a must pick-up. If you are a collector or speculator, you almost have to pick this up due to the impending events hinted at in this issue. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 30, 2019

    This comic just doesn't have much to offer, especially with a character that's going to be as tough to sell as Scream. Read Full Review

    While they attempt to do something new with the strange relationship between Andi and her symbiote, it feels like we're treading old ground. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 2, 2019

    If you're a fan of 90s symbiote stories and all the baggage that comes with them, this may be your thing, but it just never quite gelled for me. Read Full Review
