Venom #150 Pulling Out All Stops to Make Us Care!

Hello darkness, my old friend. I've come to talk with you again.



Come April, Venom will be reaching a hallmark of hundred and fifty issues. Because someone at Marvel counted all the Venom mini-series of the 90s and the two Flash Thompson ongoings that somehow make this bastard thing a reality. Oh, given the historic occasion Marvel will keep the old numbering after this comic is released in May.

You might say they've had a Rebirth realization of how awful this series is and want to cancel it as soon as possible. Then relaunch it again under a probably better creative team. Because if anyone is just jumping into this without knowing what they're in for. BOY! You don't even realize what you're in for! Go ahead, read my review of an issue. Now let that realization sink in. 

The guys who kicked off the first Venom Mini Dave Michelinie and Ron Lim will have a back-up in this doing a flashback of a better comic featuring Eddie as Venom. Also, Robbie Thompson writer of the previous Flash Thompson ongoing will tell the tragic tale of how Flash lost the symbiote. Can Marvel split this up into two halves so we can only actually pay for these only these two parts? Cause the first portion will so not be worth the money.

Here's the official solicitation and cover:

REUNITED, AND IT FEELS SO GOOD!

Or, feels so bad? However it feels, Eddie Brock and the Venom symbiote have been reunited, and they're web-slinging their way around New York again. Featuring a host (hah!) of Venom creators from the character's near 30-year history, this monstrous anniversary spectacular welcomes guest artist TRADD MOORE for an oversized and brutal main story AND a lethal story featuring fan-favorite creators David Michelinie and Ron Lim, reunited! With questions still lingering about how the symbiote was separated from Flash Thompson, and what lies in its future now that it's reunited with Eddie Brock, this is one issue you can't afford to miss!

56 PGS./Rated T+ ...$5.99

 

I feel like the comic is only worth $2 or whatever content Michelinie, Lim, and Thompson does. It sure as heck not worth the full price. Wait, my oppressors are telling me I have to review this thing?
