Venom #8 (It's arousing Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Wed Oct 26, 2011 1:31 pm

I read this issue after I read ASM, so it was kinda/sorta ruined by me already knowing how The Queen was defeated, and that the events of this issue had already been condensed into 2 pages of ASM, but this was still good. This was down to the fact that the crazy events of Spider-Island are really not the focus of the story Remender is telling, he’s more interested in Flash’s father’s death, and their relationship, and who Flash is as a human, and this issue continued the stellar job he’s done at making Flash a truly compelling character. And yes, there was crazy symbiote fight action and a team-up and all-sorts of coolness, but deep-down, this is a realistic personal drama. With aliens and stuff. Oh yeah, and I’m guessing this story is the inspiration for Venom joining the Secret Avengers once Remender takes over that book, I must say, it’ll be cool to see Flash and Cap work together on a regular basis.
