By Nick Mercurio Each week we highlight a classic storyline told in full inside Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited, the greatest collection of Marvel comics available online! This week we revisit the symbiote smackdown of VENOM VS CARNAGE!
It's a symbiote slam-fest for the ages as our two titular characters go at it like rabid cats and dogs!
Carnage is ready to give birth, and chooses to mark the beautiful occasion with love, celebration, hatred and violence! As Venom says, he's "loathed [Carnage] like a son," and you know what they say about the apple not falling far from the tree. With Carnage out to kill his little bundle of slime and Venom looking to breed a Spider-Man killing machine, the tentacles fly in the kind of ooey gooey brawl that could only take place between two symbiotes.!
As if a fight between Venom and Carnage could in any way not look cool, Clayton Crain's incredible artwork takes the book to a whole other level. With a viscous and organic style that perfectly captures the physicality of the symbiotes, the illustrations alone are worth the price of admission.
For all this and a brand new character who offers a fresh take on the symbiote idea, head on over to Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited and check out the four-part limited series VENOM VS CARNAGE!
