Remember Carnage? After his decadent stay in Marvel Comics in the 1990’s, they eased up on him a little but couldn’t get rid of him. In case you couldn’t tell…he’s back and invading one of my new favorite series, Scarlet Spider. I was hooked immediately after reading Volume 1: Life After Death which covered issues #1-6. Now I’ve been waiting for Volume 2 to be released which has issues #7-9 and #12.1-14. But I’m still a few months away from that and found out that Minimum Carnage bridged the gap. What we have here is a Scarlet Spider crossover with the new Black OPs Venom, Flash Thompson. It spanned Venom #26 & 27, Scarlet Spider #10, 11 and 12 and was bookended by Minimum Carnage: Alpha & Omega. Written and drawn by Scarlet Spider’s regular team of Chris Yost and Koi Pham, Venom’s Cullen Bunn and Declan Shavey with additional art by Ian Medina.
