Carnage: After the End - Volume 1
He is lured to a mine with the attempt to capture him but some old friends show up including Eddie Brock old venom now toxin. It starts off great, it has a serious tone and almost doesn't feel like a marvel book at all. The art is pretty good it has a grit to it with lots of darker colors A little better than i expected but not much. The art is pretty good it has a grit to it with lots of darker colors used. I will check out volume 2 but not hoping for much Feb 09, Alexander rated it liked it.
It's sort of like reading an 80's horror movie, turned comic book. I like this one a lot, it's just a shame that the story repeats itself almost beat-by-beat as of Vol.
I think there was some real potential for a very creepy story, but it turns a little bit silly at times and not in a good way. That being said, did anyone really expect Carnage's solo series to be something legendary? I for one got what I expected. Would've loved to see some more disturbing, maniacal stuff and It's sort of like reading an 80's horror movie, turned comic book. Would've loved to see some more disturbing, maniacal stuff and the lovecraftian edge is a big thumbs up from me!
But as with everything else in this book, it shows up momentarily, only to be either replaced with something else or take a backseat for the most annoying of reasons. Eddie Brock reduced to a slave? Com'on guys, there was an epic grudge match waiting to happen in here. Wouldn't even have minded Brock getting murdered. Carnage always was the superior psycho. I do recommend it if you don't mind some cheesy 80's horror combined with comic book nonsense. May 19, 47Time rated it liked it Shelves: The story doesn't excel at anything, really. It also makes the mistake of feeling like an Aliens story, so the author doesn't take advantage of the originality of the main character.
Kasady is a serial killer and a proper madman, but he almost feels tame compared to other instances. Typical of an Aliens story, most of the focus is on the secondary characters, with Carnage getting a lot less screen time if you don't count the battles.
Manuela Calderon is the only survivor of Kasady's first massacr The story doesn't excel at anything, really. Manuela Calderon is the only survivor of Kasady's first massacre. She offers to help the FBI capture him. They intend to use army-grade sonic cannons to separate the symbiote from its host. Plan A is a bust when the ground under Kasady collapses under him because of the sonic cannon blast, plunging him into the deeper tunnels.
Calderon's team must follow him down. Unknown to them is Gleason's obession with a prophecy that involves Carnage. Later on Manny resorts to releasing Toxin to continue the mission. Neither are able to stop Carnage. Carnage is told about the prophecy from Gleason and a group of cultists. The cultists believe his sacrifice will awake a creature named Chthon. Instead of dying from their assault, Carnage infects the cultists and gains control of their actions. He also develops an immunity to strong sound waves and gets away from his pursuers.

First off, I would have figured that this series would be deemed Parental Advisory due to the fact that Carnage is pretty violent. It was not but that did not stop the story from being more violent than one would have expected. Me personally, I do not know how long the Darkholm book has been around in the Marvel Universe but it was interesting to see it in play during this story.
I am just ashamed that I am only now just reading this series compared to when I should have over Interesting story. I am just ashamed that I am only now just reading this series compared to when I should have over one year ago. Carnage is definitely one insane and violent character and I am glad that this series start was able to reflect that. Nov 30, Jake rated it did not like it. This was terrible, almost a book version of the worst aspects of a Micheal Bay movie. There is absolutely no plot, everytime you think something deeper is going to happen, or character development will happen, you will be disappointed.
Random characters, events, and happenings occur, seemingly just to create more absurd action sequences. The cover of this drew me in, I thought maybe it would be a cool horror style volume focused on Carnage. Instead its a mish mash of bad action with no consequen This was terrible, almost a book version of the worst aspects of a Micheal Bay movie.
Instead its a mish mash of bad action with no consequences because you care about literally no one in the story. Jul 02, Andy rated it liked it.takomarova.ru/wp-content/299/ryxyv-znakomstva-v.php
Carnage, Volume 1: The One That Got Away by Gerry Conway
It has good characters, but does little to nothing with them. There is so dimensions to any of them, just one note characteristics. Oh Brock is the then villain now hero, carnage is crazy, werewolf dude is a werewolf. The story arc in the book was at least interesting and complete, no crossovers are my favorite part. Hope we can see more of carnage where he is not just the crazy super-villain. So far its interesting enough, but the book to me has a character problem. Jul 14, Adan rated it it was ok. Do people still care about Carnage?
He seems very much like a one-note character. Mar 12, James rated it really liked it. Either way, this comic does have its fun moments and its coal mine setting does help evoke an atmosphere similar to Alien where the cannon fodder gun-toting soldiers are walking into the creature's lair.

Don't kill me, Carnage. Feb 26, Wombo Combo rated it liked it. There were a lot of cool ideas like this, like turning Carnage into a horror movie monster and bringing Lovecraft into Carnage. I absolutely loved how Carnage was written because it was extremely faithful to his 90s appearances. Besides Carnage, I didn't really care about any of the other characters and I didn't care for how Eddie Brock was written, as he seems like a very different character than when he last appeared in Bunn's Venom. The Lovecraft stuff in only introduced in the last issue or There were a lot of cool ideas like this, like turning Carnage into a horror movie monster and bringing Lovecraft into Carnage.
The Lovecraft stuff in only introduced in the last issue or two, so it didn't have enough time to fully develop. Overall, there were some cool ideas, but they weren't flushed out enough to make the book great. Sep 30, Zach Alaniz rated it liked it. In these collected issues, Carnage Cletus Kasady realizes that the sole surviving victim of his greatest murder spree is nearby, and is setting a trap for him.
His inflated ego causes him to take the bait, and this results with a bunch of brawling with other super -powered freaks, including Toxin and the Man-Wolf. The plot is also pretty decent, and the rising action in this book is phenomenal. The ending also ends with a massive cliffhanger. Nov 16, Adam Fisher rated it really liked it.

But how has the religious ceremony changed Cletus Kassady and his symbiote Carnage? Not as funny as previous Carnage storylines, but the action was great and it was nice to see Carnage get his own title.

Let's hope it runs long enough to be part of the next Spidey Mega-Story. Carnage really isn't a character that gets me terribly excited. As a protagonist, he certainly leaves something to be desired. As a villain, he is something vile that is easy to root against. The last I saw him, he had been changed to a good guy during the Axis event and killed.
I guess he is back after Secret Wars, and this book connects him to something like the Cthulhu mythos. Contributing Authors in Volume 2 are Angel D. Happy Hour In Hell.
