This event takes place over two One-Shot issues, the first being Minimum Carnage: Alpha and the last being Minimum Carnage: Omega. Between those, in order, are Scarlet Spider #10, Venom #26, Scarlet Spider #11, and Venom #27. This event, clearly playing on the famous Maximum Carnage storyline, tells the story of Carnage escaping from prison and entering "the Microverse", an entire, life-filled universe occupying the space between the atoms of our world. It's a pretty out there concept, but if you get on board with it you're in for a pretty fun read. Anyone who has been reading Scarlet Spider and Venom's current runs (let me be clear, I have not) will know that they are not quite typical heroes. Venom is struggling with control of his symbiote, trying to do good and help the Avengers. Scarlet Spider is a murderer turned hero, trying to help people and deal with his violent tendencies. I wouldn't go so far as to call them anti-heroes, but both had runs as villains of the real Spider-Man, so things are pretty intense.
