Tom Fowler’s art was great, and Remender managed to keep a fight between two gooey monsters grounded in reality, basing it on Flash’s personality clashing with Eddie’s. It must also be said how well this issue meshed with ASM #670, this crossover has really been well-worked out, this was seamless ‘between the panels’ stuff. And then at the end Remender brings us back to the real, meaty human drama when Flash says goodbye to his dad, it was emotional stuff, and it says a lot about Remender’s skills as a writer that he can go from silly stuff like Venom Vs Anti-Venom to real drama.
Venom is definitely one of those books that is going under a lot of people's radar, largely because I think a lot of people assume from the history of Venom ongoings that it is going to suck on general principle.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a bleeding shame.
