"Demons of Broadway" Maximum Carnage Part 3 of 14. Script by David Michelinie. Pencils by Mark Bagley. Inks by Randy Emberlin. Cover by Mark Bagley and Randy Emberlin.

Part 3 of "Maximum Carnage" - Eddie Brock arrives at Laguardia Airport. He sees a newspaper concerning a headline involving Carnage. He speaks aloud concerning his intention to kill Carnage, and transforms into Venom. When Airport security clumsily attempts to apprehend him, he flees. While he approaches the city, Venom laments how he feels responsible for Carnage, as his symbiote created him.

Meanwhile, Cloak and Spider-Man are nursing their wounds in the Holy Ghost Church. Cloak is beside himself with grief from losing Dagger to a surprise assault by Shriek. He expresses grief and then rage, swearing to make Shriek pay. Spider-Man then leaves to pursue leads concerning Carnage. Spider-Man, while searching, considers the fact that Carnage has teamed up with the Doppleganger and Shriek and how death and life work in a balance.

Halfway across the city, Carnage confronts Shriek and Doppleganger about their going after Spider-Man without him. Carnage effectively puts Shriek in her place, indicating that Spider-Man is his. "Every bone and sinew, every drop of blood or bile...MINE!" Believing her to be in danger from the murdering symbiote, Doppleganger attacks Carnage. Using a piece of the alien symbiote, Carnage easily knocks Doppleganger away. Carnage then informs Shriek that this "band" has one leader - him. - READ MORE

Cover art by Jim Aparo. Closed Circuit! starring Batman, Talia, Robin, and The Electrocutioner (intro), script by Marv Wolfman (plot) and Michael Fleisher (dialogue), pencils by Irv Novick, inks by Frank McLaughlin.

The Electrocutioner, a self-appointed executioner of criminals who slip through the hands of the law, begins a series of crook-killings in Gotham City with his electrically-charged suit. A touch from one of his hands delivers a severe shock, but when both his hands touch a victim the circuit is completed and the victim dies. Batman has three encounters with the Electrocutioner. In the first, killer Mike Caine dies; in the second, Batman rescues Dane Whitney; in the third, the Electrocutioner falls through a window, grips a metal railing, and shocks himself, so that he lets go and plunges off a cliff into the river below. Despite the growing rift between him and Batman due to his decision to drop out of college, Robin traces Ronald Watkins to Gregorian Falstaff's headquarters. He also learns that six months back, Wayne Enterprises acquired a dozen of the seediest tenements in Gotham, and the fact has made the headlines of the Daily Star. Bruce, noting the paper is published by Falstaff, says that he will have to have it out with his corpulent competitor. Later, Talia arrives at the Batcave, seeking sanctuary in the wake of Ra's Al Ghul's apparent death. Robin is vehemently opposed to the idea, but Batman agrees to it, saying Robin needs to learn more about "people, and about relationships!" Robin snaps that Batman is the one who has a lot to learn, and stomps out. - READ MORE
