Layout - 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 arc? How well did the issue further develop the characters?

Verdict - 4.4

- What I think: While the cover is good, it doesn't imply what's happening in the issue, or that it even what the crossover is about. I don't know why but I found the art really hard to take in. It's just not my taste, but I keep reading because of the story and because I really like Venom. This issue continues the Minimum Carnage story arc from Scarlet Spider #11 - Minimum Carnage; Part 4; Kill Carnage. Unlike the past issues in the story arc, this one flowed a lot better. The issue starts with Carnage and Flash being retrained while their Symbiotes are harvested to create offspring. Unlike other children of the symbiotes these can be controllable by the parent. Unfortunately Flash has done a good of a job subduing Venom, causing Carnage to take control. We see a good couple of fight scenes and the issue bounces back and force between the fight and The Enigma Force. Another pet peeve is the text they used for Bug at times it was really hard to read. In the end Kaine (Scarlet Spider) comes to Flash's rescue, allowing him enough time to recover and bring out his inner demons and rage to defeat the symbiotes and Carnage. The final panel leads us to the conclusion in Minimum Carnage Omega.
