Venom #23 (Right to be afraid Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Aug 25, 2012 10:03 am

Cullen Bunn begins his run on Venom, and whilst it’s not quite as dark and personal as Remender’s got towards the end, it’s a very good start, and it looks like Bunn is building on some very interesting dangling plot threads that the outgoing writer left behind. Agent Venom is sent on a mission by Hawkeye to investigate some mysterious cult or other, and after being introduced to what is probably a potential new love interest, we’re onto the demonic action as Flash faces up to not only the DOA cult, but the Son Of Satan himself. It looks like Bunn is picking up on the ‘Circle Of Four’ storyline, which left Venom, along with Red Hulk, Ghost Rider and X-23 in debt to Mephisto. Somehow, this means that Venom can order demons about, and has led to a heelturn from Daimon Hellstrom, who is now working with a bunch of Nazi Occultists. I’ve always been a big fan of Hellstrom, and while I don’t like to see him as an out and out villain, it’s always good to see him guest-star in a comic, and it looks like Bunn has a good reason for him being such a dick. The fight between him and Venom was very good, and I feel like this was the scene where Bunn got closest to the raw personal drama that fuels this title and character. I’m very interested in seeing where this is going, and what kind of demonic trouble Flash will get into. New artist Thony Silas is new to me, but he did a good job, reminding me a little of Mahmud Asrar.

This issue was a jumping on point for me. I'm in for this arc. Not bad at all.
