Cover/Solicit - 5/5

Layout/Flow - 5/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 5/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?



Verdict - 4.7

- I enjoyed the Minimum Carnage story arc for the most part. There were times in Scarlet Spider #11 - Minimum Carnage; Part 4; Kill Carnage that seemed confusing but Venom #27 - Minimum Carnage; Part 5; Family Bondage seemed to flow better. There were certain parts of the issue where the art seemed rushed but overall it didn't effect it much. The issue is told from the point of view of Katy Kiernan's article for the Daily Inquisitor, and flowed very well. This issue ties up the end of the arc after Carnage leaves the Microverse and returned to Houston. Once Flash Thompson (Venom) and Kaine (Scarlet Spider) return from the Microverse they have to battle a Carnage, who appears to have been separated from his hosts conscious and that's not saying much considering who the host is. The issue also explains how Flash fears that the same could happen to him and the Venom symbiote. The battle rages thru the city and in the end the duo are able to bring Carnage down. The final panels show a shocking revelation that Kaine has about why bad guys act the way they do, it's because heroes don't really stop them. I wasn't sure about in the beginning, but I think this was a great finish to the arc  and definitely a must read for any Venom, Carnage, or Scarlet Spider fan.
