Venom #16 (Naked Lady Party Yacht Spoilers)

Another great issue of Venom, and this time with guest-art from the excellent Kev Walker! This issue brought back the disgusting Human Fly and used him to great effect, even though you could kind of see the twist that he didn’t have a son coming. I also liked the guest-appearance from Hobgoblin (insert your rant about how much you hate Phil Urich here), his craziness is a good fit for this title, and it set up a cool parallel between Kingpin and Hobgoblin and Crime-Master and Jack O’Lantern, each boss has their own crazy flaming assassin. I’m guessing that Venom is going to get caught in the middle of a gang-war in the near future. I was kind of disappointed that this issue didn’t really deal with Flash’s emotions after being dumped by Betty last month, but when I think back on it, this issue did reflect a change in Flash’s demeanour, it was a way of showing, not telling, how he’s changed. But then that could also be down to his now being an Avenger. Next issue is the ‘Savage Six’, that should be good.

The issue did deal with Flash's emotions. Why else do you think he bought the story of the Human Fly's so easily? Phil was alright here. He should have owned Flash but.. well Phil being Phil he got owned instead.

Kev Walker seems to be getting used to the Marvel style. Big fan of his art.

A party yacht? Were the Minnesota Vikings there?
