Me personally I was always into Venom as an anti-hero. So he over shadowed my judgement of Carnage.
Now this is the first of the Spider comics that his main antagonist goes on a city-wide killing spree, becoming so bad Venom has to join forces with him and as well as several other heroes to bring him down and even then it was hardly enough.
Definitely an awesome story from Marvel and can't to try out some other Carnage reads!
In terms of raw power Carnage is one of the more destructive villains in Marvel, and if he'd had any skill at planning or strategy he'd probably be neigh unstoppable. He's broken out before etc. So lets be honest as much as we'd like to be able to live by Spidey's no killing rule, I at least kept thinking: Venom's got a goddamn point, you should end this guy before he kills again because HE WILL.
It doesn't help that this kinda interesting moral dilemma is not handled subtly at all. Seriously the writing at parts is painfully obtuse and obvious. To the point of almost being insulting to my intelligence.
The book isn't bad though, it's fairly entertaining if not written great, it has two true A-listers with Spidey and Cap. And to be honest I really liked Cap's role in the book. The alpha-wave gun was umm... bad at best though.
I'd recommend it if you're a fan of Spidey and the symbiotes though. Venom is pretty decently written in this story, though considering his characterization goes from: Deadpool with teeth to random psycho killer he can't be easy to write.
TL:DR : it's entertaining if not great.
