Long Box Project: Maximum Carnage Awesome Conclusion

So this wraps up the 14 part story Maximum Carnage that took place across five different spiderman titles. In my past blogs I mentioned that this story was decompressed, focused on morals, and was a good example of peter getting knocked down but refusing to give up.  I have to say they keep the theme all the way through the  arc.  

Where  the first part of the story focused on team creation, Carnage"s psycho family versus spideys anti-hero team with loose morals; the story line picks up speed around part 8. When our favortie 1940's popcicle shows up to lend spidey a hand.  We also get to see more chacracter developement of our secondary characters. Shreik seems to get the main story in several books.    Although this storyline is a bit lengthy it is a good read for anyone looking to read some classic spider-man. Also an interestesting fact that a future issue of the current Carnage comic will have a 1992 variant cover featuring several charactes for the Maximum Carngae storyline. 


I have decide to also sell all fourteen Issues of this story line and will post it here in the blog comments when I do..

  • Nice review. I've got to admit that I never read much 90's Spiderman. The whole clone thing seemed like such a mess that I decided to steer clear. Carnage is a cool character though. I'm tempted to check this story out now. It's hard for me to accept this as being "classic" really but I guess everyone has their favorite wall-crawler era. Keep pulling from that long box.
