Does the conclusion offer a rousing finish to this event or is it ultimately just a forgettable romp?  Read on to find out.

The official description from Marvel:


• Houston is on fire as Carnage’s greatest act of evil may be his final hour!

• The most dangerous web-slingers of all unite with humanity at stake!

• Cullen Bunn, Chris Yost and Lan Medina bring the crossover smash hit to it’s synapse-shattering finale!

This mini-crossover has been one of the most surprising gems to hit comic stores this year.  As the creative team behind it brings their saga to a close they embrace some deeper undertones expanding the scope of their narrative.  The end result is a comic book that’s simply more than an excuse to have symbiotes and a second tier superhero battle it out over the fate of the world.

Chris Yost and Cullen Bunn do an expert job crafting their climactic conclusion.  Their script is handled in a way that frames the real purpose of this crossover while embracing the proverbial bricks in the road.  Yes it’s been a thrilling and fun ride full of zany antics but the truth is there was a real purpose behind all of this madness and to be honest it wasn’t one that I saw coming.  This is a tale that’s sure to please fans as we witness the birth of some rotten fruits that will absolutely have repercussions for both of our heroes.

Lan Medina absolutely delivers on the art.  Each panel is expertly crafted in a way the both informs and expands on the narrative scope at play here.  The expertly placed pencil strokes yield just enough surface detail to convey the mood and setting of this exciting piece that ultimately turns into a rather somber affair.

Minimum Carnage: Omega #1 brings this outrageous and thoroughly engrossing adventure to a fitting resolution.  Recommended.
