Venom #15 (Sell it calm Spoilers)

Wow, this was another stellar issue, this book is so underrated it’s unbelievable, I can’t believe so few people discuss it online. After a month of hell-bound fun, we’re back down to Earth as Flash deals with the impact of his going off the wagon and how it’s basically ruined his life. I love how Remender contrasts the real-life drama of Flash’s personal life with the crazy shenanigans of his joining the Secret Avengers. His conversations with his mother, Betty Brant and Peter Parker in this issue were all fantastic, and show how this title is kind of a dark reflection of Spider-Man. I can’t wait to see how much more Flash can screw up his life, or maybe he’ll turn it all around and bone Valkyrie! The scenes in the Secret Avengers HQ were very well done, Remender is brilliant at writing Beast, and I loved the contrast between what Flash says and what he’s thinking. Those scenes also beg the question of what will happen if Peter ever finds out that Venom is an Avenger, sparks are going to fly. This title really is fantastic, and I can’t recommend it enough, I haven’t even gotten around the mentioning the subplot of Eddie Brock going around and killing other symbiotes like Hybrid yet, that has to be building to something big. Basically, if you like Spider-Man, buy this book, it’s like that book, but if Aunt May died and MJ hated Peter and he was an alcoholic, Dark Spidey. With guns.
