    Torunn offers an accelerated and impressive narrative pace.

    Art is very detailed and successfully achieves bloody scenes, very visceral. Although the amount of detail often changes from one panel to another.

    Carnage #2 explains Cletus Kasady’s mysterious objective and sets him up for interesting personal struggle, while giving Flash Thompson clearer means to stop him.

    There’s some cleverness in Carnage #2. The idea that this chaotic serial killer is trolling conspiracy theorists by building an actual conspiracy as a kind of divine act, their following it as a form of worship, is interesting stuff. The incredibly circuitous way in which he’s going about his plan is less compelling. There’s almost a running gag here as the symbiote continually shouts at Cletus to get out with it, and as a reader, I felt most sympathetic to the reader. There are also some muddied motivations at play. Perhaps I missed something in Flash Thompson’s recent history, but it isn’t entirely clear why he’s so reluctant to go out and do symbiote superhero stuff when he’s feeling a lack of purpose and clearly on the tail of a super-powered serial killer. If it can shed its ponderous pacing, Carnage might become something worthwhile.
