"Minimum Carnage Omega"
This is what it has all been leading up to, Carnage back in the real world. I LOVE the way that Yost and Bunn decided to bring him back into the real world. People are literally bleeding Carnage out of their eyes and mouth. He is so violent, he kills on return to the Macroverse, you have to love it.
Of course Carnage isn't allowed to return to the Macroverse alone, so Flash and Kaine follow behind equipped with a weapon to help destroy Carnage. Their re-entry isn't as epic as Carnage's...it actually causes them problems because they do not return in the same size in which they left. As mini versions of themselves, you know that they are going to struggle fighting one of the cruelest men ever alive.
The fight is well done and shows the changes inside of Flash and Kaine. They are no longer enemies of one another but they have a slightly different idea of what justice is. Kaine will always be more violent than Flash which makes me wonder what it would be like to see Kaine in the Symbiote. I doubt that will happen but it would be a really cool story.
I don't want to spoil the ending for those of you that want to read it but it was definitely the best part of the arc. Also, if you read Scarlet Spider or Venom I think this issue is key to some major changes going on in those two character's lives. Yost and Bunn did a really nice job with this book and I am excited to see where their individual titles go in the near future.
