This is well written and the art is good, but there are few characters I like less than Venom and Carnage is one of them. Luckily (?) this trade features both of them.

After the Sam Raimi's Spider-man movies, I was very turned-off from Spider-man, hated Peter Parker, and really despised his relationship with Mary Jane. On the flip-side, I had watched the cartoons collected into the movie Spider-man: The Venom Saga and LOVED it (hence why Spider-man 3 was SUCH a bitter disappointment).

I was very resistant to read anything related to Spider-man, but my husband is persistent that the comics are much better and more akin to the cartoon I so adored. So I took a ri

Oh 90's comics, you really are something else! I managed to find this book at Half-Priced books for $0.25 and it was definitely worth all 25 pennies and more! It was cheesy, full of outrageous ideas and just plain fun to read it.

Don't take this seriously at all or you won't enjoy it. Appreciate these 90's comics for what they are, fun, silly adventures.

Story: 1 for serious, 5 for laughs
Art: 4

Probably the lone diamond to come from the "Venom mine". Definitely the best idea since Venom himself and even forces an uneasy truce between Spidey and Venom. This book holds a certain charm due to the glut of material that follows: remember Maximum Carnage, complete with video game? Comics are their own worst enemy sometimes: good ideas get run into the ground.

The introduction of Carnage, a serial killer gets the offspring of Venom. The killer is definitely deranged, and very, very sick. No one can beat him. So an unusual team up has to be created. This story is slightly disturbing, but I did like how it showed Venom actually has a sense of honour. A very good read.

Latter day reread. An engaging enough idea entered into with the best of intentions, destined to drive comics deeper into the darkness (and, like Venom, to be overplayed).
