   Good but not great
At some points it's like a dagger story with a guest appearance from SpiderMan. Even though it is a good read, it remains a good read.
   Entertaining, but not an essential buy
Let me start this off by saying that I am not the biggest SpiderMan fan on the planet. I don 't like the character, but I have always preferred others. That is said, this is the one SpiderMan collection I own among my three shelves full of TPBs. The story is entertaining even though it seemed to be mostly an action sequence after another with an increasingly growing cast of heroes and villains. Here there were not serious plots or even motivations, just bad guys going out and causing havoc and the heroes showing up to stop them. Unless I missed something, they never really explained how the heroes were, except that the villains were new every time. New York is a big city and I have a hard time believing that they happened upon them ever time. This is a good read though, and I always enjoy seeing heroes come together, even if some of them are not exactly A-list characters. This is a good story, whether you're a SpiderMan fan or not, so long as you don 't expect anything too complex.
   Blast from the past.
I followed this story religiously the 3 months it came back in... I want to look at 1993, and I'm too lazy to say it now. But for others, I can see this as a problem. This is already a book for those who love the story definitely. Although I have lent this out to people who were not fans back then and they greatly enjoyed the book, so who knows. I'm going to suggest picking it up, but it also helps to have books like Vengeance of Venom and Venom Lethal Protector to help build up this story. Not a great story to go blind in. Nevertheless, a lasting favorite of mine is always there, and will always be.
   Very Repetitive
I read Maximum Carnage first when it came out in the 1990s. I bought the good novel and was not nearly as graphic as I remembered. The plot is negative and the momentum is repetitive. Carnage and his gang kill someplace, a lot of people, and then Spiderman and his friends show up and fight them. Characters develop out of no reason, they pop out of the blue and the characters are constantly re-stating everything that happened in the story, like it was a soap opera. Very pleasant reading, very dull. Really had to stretch to get this to 14 issues. If they had bound the story a little further to 4-5, the threadbare plot probably wouldn't have seemed quite so bad, but they shortened it for 14 issues!
   amazing thanks prime!
Spider-Man maximum carnage is totally amazing, the draw are incredible that brings me back to the 90s, when I used to read SpiderMan comics!
   OK read
In the story there was no real supesence. The probable question met an improbable solution.
   Carnage rules
Warning : there will be spoilers in it's review, but most of the book is fighting, but there is some story there and it's pretty straightforward, which is a lot more than most modern books, but that is just my opinion. And no, it is not the 1990 video game.
   Amazing story, Inconsistent art
Tons of action and internal conflict in both heroes and villains. Tons of crossover characters joining the fight and keeping the action dynamic. The only thing that keeps it from being a five star book is the drastic changes in art style across the 14 edition run.
   If your looking for a good story with Carnage you found it
I had mixed feelings about this. I heard from many sources that Maximum Carnage was one of the greatest symbiote comics of all time. But I was concerned that Carnage would be a one dimensional character who only likes to murder things. Never been more happy to be wrong, Cletus gets a backstory in a way where you understand and can almost sympathize with him. Combined with all the other characters used extremely well makes this a comic book for the ages. Five stars :
   Poor story
I get that it is cool to see spiderman, venom and carnage fighting against each other along with several other cool characters, but the story and dialogues are very poor and almost lame. There were parts where I thought I was reading a Power Rangers comic book.
