The coming of Carnage. When Venom’s offspring transforms psychopath Cletus Kasady into a symbiotic serial killer, Peter Parker makes the hardest decision of his life and turns to Venom for help. But will Eddie Brock join the fight, or will he continue his single-minded mission to squash Spider-Man. Spider-Man enters the Lizard’s lair and faces a powerful enemy alongside the New Warriors. When Spidey is haunted by Kraven the Hunter, can the web-slinger save the soul of his fiercest foe. Then, when familiar faces make a startling return, Spidey must investigate a painful piece of his past assuming he can get through Taskmaster and the Red Skull.
