The latest era in writer Jonathan Hickman’s revolutionary transformation of the X-Men universe is now underway, bringing with it exciting new titles like last month’s Children of the Atom by Vita Ayala and Bernard Chang, next month’s Way of X by Si Spurrier and Bob Quinn, and May’s X-Corp by Tini Howard and Alberto Foche. And after June’s highly-anticipated franchise-spanning Hellfire Gala, fans can expect even more surprises, including a trio of brand-new series by amazing X-Men creators such as Gerry Duggan, Leah Williams, Pepe Larraz, Valerio Schiti, and the Head of X himself, writer Jonathan Hickman.

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.
