Almost twenty years after "Maximum Carnage" was first published, a new and smaller -in more ways than one- story featuring the sanguinary red symbiote begins. Cletus Kasady, Carnage's human host is on the loose once again, this time with a specific purpose and lot of help; it is up to the combined power of Venom and Scarlet Spider to stop him; of course, that is if they don't kill each other first.

New readers don't have to be concerned with having to know a lot of backstory; the introductory page and the main characters' inner monologues take care of providing the necessary context. Flash Thompson and Kaine are likeable, nice guys that are trying almost too hard to seem detached or uncaring; then again, with the legacies they carry, they may have no other option. Lan Medina's artwork is very nice, as good with the splashy panels as with the smaller ones. A good start to this six-parter.
