Publisher’s Summary: For weeks, the serial killer called Carnage has been hunting former symbiote hosts and killing them. Next on his list is ANDI BENTON, formerly MANIA, who’s back to living in Philadelphia and without any symbiote to save her…The path of bodies that leads to ABSOLUTE CARNAGE continues here!
“You think devils scare me? Think again. I give devils nightmares!”
Andi Benton, formerly known as Mania, lost her symbiote, and now that she is vulnerable, Carnage is after her.
What a ride! Cullen Bunn wastes no time getting this series off to an intense start; the first page of Web Of Venom: Funeral Pyre (2019) #1 ooze intense symbiote action, and establish the breakneck pace, and dire circumstances that will leave readers begging for more. Not only is the plot/conflict exciting, but Andi speaks and acts authentically, making her easy to relate to and root for.
Talk about eye candy: Joshua Cassara & Alberto Alburquerque’s work on this book is stellar. Page after page is packed tight with great detail, giving readers good reason to stop and stare. While I appreciate the facial expressions and setting work, seeing Venom/Carnage/Mania in action is nothing short of riveting.
An absolute must-read for Venom/Carnage fans, Web Of Venom: Funeral Pyre (2019) #1 is one of the most intense debut issues I’ve ever read.
