Venom #3
The new Venom title has been very polarizing thus far, at least at my local comic shop. You either hate it or you love it. You like Flash Thompson as Venom or your disgusted by the choice.
So far I have really enjoyed the Venom series and a crippled alcoholic as the iconic character of Venom doesn’t bother me. But this issue was a let down.
It starts off great. The first two pages set the stage for what should make a great story, but the art quickly falls off and the plot becomes fairly predictable.
Page to page the art is extremely hit or miss. When Flash begins to lose control, the depiction of Venom is down right distracting. It’s awful. He looks like a black blob of spikes. But by the end when Venom is securely in the driver’s seat of Flashes actions, the art picks up a bit and the last few pages are solid.
Venom #3 receives 2.5 stars out of 5.
The art looks lazy and the story is flat. The extra half a star is for the bonus appearance of Peter and Spider-man and for there brief battle. Hopefully the next issue will pick up the slack.

    • This series is really growing on me. I think the beginning was rushed, but it has started to build into a new direction of its own. Oddly, it is taking a while for Agent Venom to build his own rogues gallery. He’s still working out of the Spider-Man reject pile. This series did get better.
