Maximum Carnage - Intro
An apology again for the delays, I know I've been slow with installments and it's mostly due to that pesky "life" thing followed by it's friends "study" and "work" bastards the lot of them. I probably would have started last night but I actually felt like shit so decided that wouldn't be the time for a fair appraisal of a comic book.

Some background: It's the sequel to Carnage.

Okay I'll give a bit more right when this starts I think Harry Osborne just died (again?) I haven't opened the book up yet to check. In a more meta sense though I do have a few things to say.

First a few confessions about myself: I will admit I'm someone who can trick himself into liking something he paid money for, at least for a short time.

There are some common critiques of this book, one of which is introduced in it's introduction, that they made it too dark and waited too long to have the tide turn. That doesn't' bother me personally I don't find the book to be dark. I do think it's violent but that's not the same thing to me.

Yeah the last book was done by Mark Bagley who's name I probably just butchered, and the art was actually pretty good. He wasn't great at doing faces but he did the characters in their suits really well. The art here is kinda crap though. It's very 90s, and as a friend described very 2 dimensional.

So lets dive into this fucker, lets get elbow deep beyond the borderline.
