Venom Vol. 2
Reunited, and it feels so good! Or rather, feels so bad! Eddie Brock and the Venom symbiote are back together, web-slinging their way around New York again - and a host of creators from the character's near 30-year history are here to celebrate! With questions still lingering about how the symbiote was separated from Flash Thompson, what lies in its future now that it's reunited with Eddie Brock? Will he be the city's lethal protector once again, or revert back to a sadistic, Spider-hating villain? There's only one way to find out!COLLECTING: VENOM 150-153

    You would be hard pressed to not enjoy this Venom comic. Venom has always been cool as Hell, and in this volume he fights dinosaurs for about 75% of it. Moon Girl makes an appearance, and some meaningful development happens between Brock and the symbiote. It's a whole heck of a lot of fun, and the art is consistently awesome. The real zinger here though is the first issue: "Heart of Darkness". The writing wasn't anything special, but Tradd Moore illustrates the coolest looking issue of Venom I h You would be hard pressed to not enjoy this Venom comic.

The writing wasn't anything special, but Tradd Moore illustrates the coolest looking issue of Venom I have ever seen, and I have never wanted him as the regular series artist as much as I do now. The world needs more Tradd, and he's remarkably well suited to Venom.

    [Read as single issues]I'm a sucker for Eddie Brock. While I wish Flash was still Venom, I'm happy to roll with Eddie being back, especially since Mike Costa's take on the character is very, very interesting. Instead of having these characters on even footing, he has Eddie and the symbiote working like ex-lovers reunited, trying to work out what their relationship should be as they try to fight crime and not murder people (which is more difficult than it sounds).Not helping matters are Alchemax [Read as single issues]I'm a sucker for Eddie Brock.

Instead of having these characters on even footing, he has Eddie and the symbiote working like ex-lovers reunited, trying to work out what their relationship should be as they try to fight crime and not murder people (which is more difficult than it sounds).Not helping matters are Alchemax and their dinosaur experiments, which lead Eddie into battle with Stegron the Dinosaur Man, with a little help from Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur (in their most organic cameo ever). It's a completely nuts set-up, but after the dourness of the opening arc featuring Lee Price, it's exactly the shot in the arm that the series needed.Also included is issue 150, which reintroduces Eddie as a character, and has a few little back-ups by Venom mainstays, including a story meant to bridge the gap between Venom: Space Knight and the current series (although I'd call this a bit of a failure since it really doesn't explain anything).Gerardo Sandoval tackles the Land Before Crime proper, and I really love his heavily shaded, manga-inspired visuals for this series, especially with the dinosaurs. It's like he's trying to see how monstrous everything can look before it gets ridiculous, and it never, ever gets ridiculous. Tradd Moore steps up for the main story in #150, and his slimey visuals are perfect for that, too.The first arc of this series was okay - this one is where it's at. Lots of clever storytelling, and a main relationship that really looks at the idea of symbiosis in a different light.

    Después de Flash Thompson, pensaba que la vuelta a Eddie era un error.Pero estaba equivocado. Estos números han sido una perfecta introducción para una historia con algo que contar. Espero que llegue pronto, porque la espero con ganas.

    This can't help but feel like a major regression, from a storytelling perspective.

    Feels like some non-funny Deadpool Heroes journey stuff.

    Art looked great, storytelling felt sloppy and lazy.
