    Some pretty decent action to what I'm guessing is the final chapter of the Venom arc, as it would appear that Venom is no longer a threat. Now truth be told the lack of a body does leave me rather doubtful that Venom is no more, as if nothing else Peter's earlier encounter with the power lines when he was encased in the suit would seem to suggest that Eddie's smoking corpse should still be on the scene. Still I'm getting too hung up on how this issue ended, and I'm not spending nearly enough time praising the book for its delivery of a fairly intense battle that gave readers a pretty good look at the Ultimate Venom in action. He certainly looks like he can hold his own in a fight, and while the electricity weakness is a bit worrisome, the art does a pretty solid job of making the blast of energy look like something Venom wouldn't be able to shrug off. The framing device using the video tape from Peter's father was also a nice touch. Read Full Review
