Title: Stupid Question
Post by: Wringer on August 09, 2018, 10:17:46 AM
Did anyone read the Carnage series from 2015 (16 issues)?

My guess is probably not, but you should.

good story by Gerry Conway and great art by Mike Perkins.

i was taken aback by how much i enjoyed the story and how it was constructed.

it wasn't until the last issue letter page that it all made sense as to why when the original pitch was revealed....














Let do a Tomb of Dracula story with Carnage as Dracula...nuff said.

Of course Gerry was the original writer on ToD as well as Conan and multiple Spidey stories as well as the great "Fire and Ice" cartoon with Frank Frenzetta.

As a matter of fact - I did!

It was very good and what got me interested in that character.

Excellent. ..I'm glad you enjoyed it also.  Really well done and so glad marvel  allowed then to tell it and not cut it short.  I'm sure it didn't burn up the charts.

I liked they gave cletus a bit more character than just homicidal maniac, Brock was more interexting than he'd been in...EVER and it was a pleasure to see JJjr in more than a bit piece.

Good stuff
