Venom #17 (Cut the gibberish Spoilers)

Another very good issue of Venom, seriously, why aren’t more people reading this book? It’s excellent. This issue featured the formation of the Savage Six, and I really liked how the team’s coming together played out naturally and was based on what we’ve already seen in this title. It felt like everything up until now has been leading up to this arc. I think the new Jack O’Lantern may be my favourite villain in comics at the moment, he’s just so whacked out and crazy, and teaming up him and Crime-Master with the Human Fly makes a lot of sense. As does what happens to Eddie Brock at the end of this issue, I’ve liked his role as a sort of Punisher for Symbiotes, but in the end, he works best when he’s covered in an evil alien goo. This issue once again featured top-notch interior monologue and character details about Flash Thompson from Remender and new co-writer Cullen Bunn, Flash just feels so real and the addiction he’s going through is very effecting. I can’t wait to see what happens when the shit really hits the fan in this title, it’s going to be crazy.

Jack O'Lantern is a new goblin done right. It takes the concept of the goblin and puts a whole new spin on it. I loved him being in awe of the Tetris blocks.

I can't say it. It's too horrible.
