Minimum Carnage continues here, but do we really need another adventure with symbiote on symbiote violence? Read on to find out.
The official description from Marvel:
• Stranded in an alien world, Scarlet Spider and Venom must work together to defeat Carnage!
• Declan Shalvey makes his return to Venom in all out symbiote warfare!
With Carnage in the Microverse, our heroes had no choice but to chase after him only to find themselves in some rather bizarre situations. That’s where readers pick-up the story as they crack open this comic book and interestingly enough there are some very fascinating but somewhat goofy results. To be perfectly honest, there are some extreme highs and some shockingly low moments contained here but for the most part the creative team finds a way to balance everything out.
Cullen Bunn handles this next chunk of the crossover with relative ease, as the now seasoned Venom scribe pens a script that gets the proverbial blood flowing. Action ensues as some Guardians of the Galaxy type moments flood the screen, and our hero finds himself in a world where war is a much more common place. There are some serious emotional undertones at work here, as both Kaine Parker and Flash Thompson seem to find things they envy in this jaunt through a tiny little universe. It’s these (pun not intended) small moments that really sell the authenticity of the script and keep its zanier moments somewhat grounded.
Declan Shalvey handles the art and he does a wonderful job continuing the quality of this little crossover. The characters look great as they spring into action traversing some diverse locals that give way to an intergalactic war on the subatomic level. The pencil strokes ultimately yield a very engaging visual experience full of chaotic sequences that are easily worth any fans time.
Venom #26 is a very good chaotic romp of microscopic significance, but nonetheless keeps a rather epic scale. Recommended.
