    Brian Michael Bendis has managed to rework Venom's back story into a fairly engaging untold chapter from Peter's past, and he's also developed Eddie Brock into a character who makes for a wonderful addition to the book's supporting cast, as he's almost playing the role of Peter's older brother. The issue also does a nice job of explaining what the venom suit is, and how it relates to Peter's world. Now the whole idea of the venom suit being stolen away by a group who were looking to use it as a military weapon struck me as a bit too old school a plot for Brian Michael Bendis to be offering up, but then again the Ultimates has shown us that the government agencies are not above taking part in some outright deplorable activities, so tossing aside a possible cure for cancer might not be too far fetched. The final pages of the issue offer up a pretty surprising twist though, even if the cover does act as a bit of a spoiler. Read Full Review
