Carnage is a result of an alien symbiote joining with serial killer Cletus Kasady, and one of Spider-Man’s deadliest foes. Spidey has defeated Carnage in the past and he has been placed under heavy confinement. New York has been safe. But researchers believe that they can separate the two entities, and bring Carnage to New York for this experimental treatment. Unfortunately, Carnage escapes and begins a deadly rampage. Spider-Man must stop him again… and that is just one problem Peter is facing....more

A passable story marred by large amounts of filler. Between several pages of illustrations and white space, one chapter that adds nothing to the story, and abysmally large print and wide margins, paying full price for Carnage in New York is a cheat. If you've enjoyed other Spidey novels, and can find it on the cheap, this novel may be worth a shot, but those who are new to the wall-crawler's prose should start out by reading Adam-Troy Castro's Sinister Six trilogy.

A perfect superhero novella. I enjoyed it reading it very much. I found it at my comic book store for only 2 bucks so I decided to give it a shot. It was worth it. The balance between drama and action was good and Mary Jane in this book is right down gorgeous. She's perfect and here she's everything I've always wanted in a wife.

I have to admit that I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. The writing is good and the storyline kept my interest and made me want to read the book in one setting. Is it great literature? Of course not. Is it a fun way to spend a few hours escaping? You bet!
Carnage in New York is one of the better superhero based novels I have read. Carnage is loose in New York and causing massive deaths and destruction. It is definitally worth the read for any Spideman fan.
That poor man's nose!
