    As Venom wraps up the debut arc I can happily say that Venom is not just one of the best new ongoings out there It IS the best new ongoing out there. Remender and crew have given us the best new comic from Marvel in a while. The over the top espionage and fun adventures of Venom have made for a fantastic read this issue and have smoothed out most of the bumps this series was having in the previous three issues.

    When all is said and done, this re-imagining of Venom continues to provide the thrills I am seeking from a book of this nature. Remender has really made good use of the black ops angle he infused into the Venom mythos. Having never been a fan of Venom in my life, it's saying a lot when I'm anxiously looking forward to what comes next. Read Full Review

    Flash has a lot of explaining to do to his superiors. Before that can take place, Flash has to fight Spider-Man while wearing the Venom suit. Ever since Flash was revealed as the new bearer of the suit, I've been waiting for this fight? Will it be the end-all fight we all crave? Of course not. Something needs to be left for round two. Rick Remender is continuing to build up Venom's new enemies and each appearance makes me wonder what they will do next. Tony Moore's return sweetens up the issue giving the glorious green-Venom spittle and detail I enjoy seeing. A nice ending to the arc and I'm curious what the next issue will bring. Read Full Review

    All in all, this is a series I'll be sticking with, if Remender can keep from resorting to busting out the slobber-monster every other issue, as the slobber-monster is the least compelling aspect of the current situation. And slobber monsters just feel outdated in comics anyway. Keep the damn tongue in your mouth and tell some good Flash Thompson stories. That's the guy I want to know more about. Read Full Review

    "Venom" is a very good comic, completely enjoyable and mad cap fun. It's yet to traverse into the realm of greatness, but the offerings of this first arc portent enough towards some quality coming down the pike, and Remender's other work must engender some sort of faith credits. "Venom" has more tricks and treats to offer and is worth sticking around for. If you like the Spider-Universe but don't want the wholesome everyman of Parker then this is the title for you. It has the classic Spidey feel mixed with a funhouse mirror and some serious nightmare dust. Indulge the kid within; The twelve year old you would have dug this so hard. The adult you won't mind it either. Read Full Review
