Series had promise, but the end shows that as usual, Marvel has no idea what to do with the Inhumans. Pretty sure we won't see them for a while - as another commenter wrote the X-Men are back so no need for the Inhumans now...

Released: Nov 7, 2018

THE FINAL STAND!
The Royal Family has been broken. Now, something new and terrible rises from its ashes. Who is Vox? Where are the Inhumans he's killed? And what lies ahead for a king without a kingdom?

Bleemak reviewed Venom Annual #1 Oct 18, 2018
5.0

The art is great and the writing is too.

But.

What makes this annual bad for me is the inconsistencies. Felicia worked with Venom in Venom Inc. and he earned her respect. So her view is very odd. Shocker has fought Venom in Venom #164, they act like that never happened.

And the worst of all, Gargan. "Venom doesn't eat people, he is not scary..." GARGAN YOU WERE A H more

Seems like a transitional issue, but in the good way.

Farmhand #1

Jedidiah Jenkins is a farmer-but his cash crop isn't corn or soy. Jed grows fast-healing, plug-and-play human organs. Lose a finger? Need a new liver? He's got you covered. Unfortunately, strange produce isn't the only thing Jed's got buried. Deep in the soil of the Jenkins Family Farm, something dark has taken root, and it's beginning to bloom.

A damn good issue. Well I cannot said I'm disappointed to see Shocker as a vilain (After what Zub tried to do with him in Uncanny Avengers). But That was a hell of good issue. That start as a transitional one, but in the middle give the action we needed. And that come slowly with Kamala & Bruno far away of there surrounding.

I never cared about Venom that much to pick up the main book.

But seeing that this time it's going to be run by Cates and Stegman, it was a no brainer to try at least the first couple issues, as these two are some of my favourites in the industry.

This series is very good. Great leading character (he isn’t just an angry Hulk/Wolverine fusion, he is an honorable soldier, driven by his sense of duty and love for his family), and great story. If you are looking for something featuring adult characters in a more "traditional marvel way", give this book a try. I'm sure you won't regret it.
