Review: Carnage, Black, White, and Blood #1

Carnage: Black, White, and Blood #1

There’s been a string of anthology releases with a “color” theme about them. Black, white, and red has been a popular combo. Then there’s also blue and red. There’s the “blood” direction that Marvel has gone as in “black, white, and blood”. Carnage: Black, White, and Blood #1 is the latest anthology that focuses on the ruthless killer.

With a trio of stories the anthology is an interesting one delivering three very different adventures. The first is a very tradition superhero affair with Carnage drifting off to another life. The second takes place in the Wild West with a lawman on the hunt for Carnage. The final is a brilliant choose your own adventure story.

Each has their strengths and weaknesses and each are intriguing takes on the character. There’s still some underlying themes with each, specifically how much of a force of nature the character is and how uncontrollable Carnage is as a symbiote. There’s some stumbles in a few of the stories but it’s an entertaining read, especially the roleplaying like choose your ow adventure, an entry I’d love to see more of.

The art delivers on the chaos as well with visuals that match the death and destruction within the comic. There’s some solid work, especially with the western, that really fits the stories they’re telling and the use of minimal colors makes things interesting. With such a focus on “blood”, it’d be easy for the comic to overdo the red but it’s done at a level that doesn’t distract.

Carnage: Black, White, and Blood #1 is an interesting comic. If you’re a fan of the character, go for it. It’s entertaining and has some interesting takes. For those new, there’s not enough that really jumps out. It’s good one-and-done stories that has some “fun” with a despicable character.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

The Recount #3

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Alien #1 (Marvel) – The classic property comes to Marvel! The publisher has done amazing stuff when it comes to expanding the world of Star Wars and we’re hoping for the same here.

Allergic (Graphix) – Maggie wants a pet to play with. Unfortunately, she’s allergic to anything with fur!

Carnage: Black, White, and Blood #1 (Marvel) – The various “color” comics coming out have been solid and we’re excited to check out a new one.

Harley Quinn #1 (DC Comics) – A new volume kicking off from Future State. That mini-event had a great take on the character and we’re hoping this continues that direction.

Morrison Hotel (Z2 Comics) – The influential band gets an anthology focused on their impact and the lore about them.

Rabid World #1 (Scout Comics) – A rabies-like disease has broken out around the world. This is a story of two couples, one trying to survive and the other trying to save the world.

The Recount #3 (Scout Comics) – The series has been amazing so far following the follow out of a corrupt President and those rising up to exact vengeance against anyone that supported him.

Shadow Doctor #2 (AfterShock) – The true story about a Black doctor in the 1930s who turned to the mob to get the money he needed to start a practice.

Stray Dogs #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue was fantastic. A small dog winds up in a new home not knowing how they got there. Flashes of their former life hint at murder. It’s an interesting series, a noir murder mystery from the perspective of a dog.

Teen Titans Academy #1 (DC Comics) – The Teen Titans decide to train and teach the next generation of heroes. But, we know the possible deadly future that is ahead for them.
