This issue offers very little to the table. All it really does is recap al the events up until now. We’re then led to Scream resisting Carnage’s control, which was interesting to see, and her and Andi teaming up to fight against the horde of Carnage monsters. And in one panel, they are referencing the cover of Amazing Fantasy #15, which I don’t know how I feel about. The art overall is decen more

This really isn’t anything special. All it shows is how Miles gets himself and The Scorpion involved, and we even get some flashbacks to Venom #3 from a year ago to show how he’s involved but that’s it. Now It’s not that I hate Miles Morales or anything like that, it’s just that with Absolute Carnage, he really has no true role. From what we know, he’s one of the few heroes who hasn’ more

This was a nice edition to the event. Although, nothing major happens in this issue. But we do get the return of the Life Foundation Symbiotes who first appeared in the Seperation Anxiety one-shot, and the return of of a very important player from a year ago. I even like the interaction between Dylan and Normie. Even if they just met, Dylan was gonna protect from the Symbiotes. Iban Coello’s art more

Personally, I’m not that intrigued by this comic. This comic really has not much that could be said. We do get some nice callbacks to the Venom series and the return of two special characters, but that’s it. This comic is basically nostalgia bait.

This was a fantastic issue. After the events of War of the Realms, it seems like Eddie is alone, he has his son, Dylan, by his side (Even though Dylan still doesn’t know Eddie is his father). Eddie is no longer Venom for the time being, but is still able to work his way around this things, and this issue shows that. While it wasn’t anything important, it was still enjoyable.

After weeks on the run and battling the monsters of Asgard through the WAR OF THE REALMS, Eddie Brock finally has a moment to catch his breath. But without his symbiote, getting even the basic necessities will become a challenge for Eddie Brock. Which means that keeping his son, Dylan, alive will be too!

Now, this could one of the best issues of the series so far. It just makes Peter more relatable as a character. He wants to be able to be there for the one closest to him. But it’s his responsibility as Spider-Man that gets in the way. This issue reinforces that idea even more. Not to mention that the ending and the dialogue is clearly foreshadowing to the undoing of One More Day. I can’t wait more

In my opinion, this one-shot doesn’t really scream Absolute Carnage. This wasn’t bad by any means as it was a good story, and the art was fantastic.
