In the end, our Anti-Carnage Task Force plants explosives around the ship and make their way to a life boat, while Toxin tries to keep Raze and Carnage at bay........ and even though it looks like our team actually pull it off, since we know that this story is in the past, it kind of makes it a bit less satisfying that we know the ending before we even really get into the action. We do leave this issue with finding out that Claire Dixon is believed to be dead, even though the castaway our team picked up claims she talked to her and with this belief, she's continuing to go with her team, but tucked away on the side of the ship as their journey to stop Carnage continues.
That's it for this issue of Carnage and I enjoyed this issue more than the last....... simply because it offered the same thing, while giving us everything we wanted from the last issue, plus adding a new spin to the tale by making Claire Dixon a symbiote host herself. The thing that I find most unfortunate about this issue and really just Carnage on the open water is that we're stuck in the drab environment of a cargo ship...... or whatever kind of ship it was and it's just not very exciting, especially since most of the Anti-Carnage Task Force, who aren't monsters don't really have anything to do in the story besides for shooting their guns at anything that moves. So yeah, we got a few more things this issue that made it a half decent read, I just hope that our team get to their destination in the next issue so we can get back to having something to look at besides darkness, catwalks and pipes.
Bits and Pieces:
Carnage this issue does take a step in the right direction when it comes to action and showing off what the super powered members of the Anti-Carnage Task Force can do, but since we continue to be in a drab, dark environment, the art doesn't seem to shine as much as I would have liked. I do look forward to where this series is going though and with the added reveal here, it does change up the dynamic of the book.
