Patricia Robertson may know symbiotes…but nothing could have ever prepared her for their god, KNULL! With Carnage building strength to call the symbiote god to Earth, Patricia must harness the power of the Scream symbiote! Can Scream withstand the draw of Knull, or are they doomed to be another casualty? Rated T+

Continuing the carnage where we left off, we have the newest host of the Scream symbiote going after Andi Benton. But Andi, proves to be a formidable opponents due to her being the bearer of the hell-mark. The physical battle may be going on but the mental battle wages with Screams new host fighting the calls of Carnage to do his bidding. The voices so loud to the point of causing physical pain to herself, Andi understands the call of something darker than yourself and knows it can be fought off. Scream will try her damndest to gain control, wanting to destroy Carnage not aid him. But you just can’t keep a serial killer down his hooks dug deep into any and all who bear a symbiote. With only one issue left it will be intriguing to see how everything goes down.
With Bunn crafting a fun story and thoroughly enjoying Sandoval clean, sharp, and yet somehow gritty artwork it fits with the subject matter. These tie-ins have been great for Absolute Carnage and Scream continues to have me excited for the next issue.
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
