I got the characters confused briefly, it is something to be mindful of when employing this art style. I'm still digging it though, I hope the creators stick the landing with the next issue.

This issue is so hauntingly good. I'm really digging this series. I love how the greys are portrayed. They have unique personalities. They seem fallible and not so powerful... human-like, flawed, conflicting. Anyways, pick this series up if you're looking for an amazing, thought provoking story.

"Oh god, you're so gross"

Good issue. Story and action were good, David Marquez's art was phenomenal (I'm even getting used to this grainy look of it), but some of Aaron's dialogue was bothering me.

Some of the lines were cringy and made characters look stupid. The line about Namor being gross made Captain Marvel sound like some dimwitted 14-year-old girl and Iron Man talki more

Pretty much Chip's version of Dan Slotts Asm 801. I liked that issue and I think this similar but differnt take was just as great. I actually had no idea Chip was leaving the title and I honestly am bummed. His run started so average and turned into one of my favorite Spidey runs of all time. You will be missed. He also killes it on art.

You really can't go wrong with Venom right now. Story is clicking and the art just tops it off. *** on a side note. Does anyone at Marvel know what to do with Miles. He is in this book as Spider-Man. You have him kind of transforming in Champions, Bendis undid the Spidey thing when he left and to top it off he gets an annual like a week or two ago with a new origin and still spidey. Very confused!
