CBF Quick Picks #112 : Venom #15

The journey Flash Thompson is going on is a fascinating one. You have Rick Remender to thank again for his incredible character work in Venom #15. There’s some intriguing sub-plots with Flash now being part of Secret Avengers and Eddie Brock’s new purpose in life, but how he handles his relationships in the face of the loss of his father is what sells this book. Odd to say when talking about a Venom book.

And of course, there’s the giant elephant in the room that we have to talk about. Avengers vs. X-Men #1 begins Marvel’s next event, as we see the beginnings of the Phoenix Force making its arrival and the battle to decide what to do with Hope. It would have been easy to dismiss this because of the failure in Fear Itself, but that would do a disservice to the nice start this event has. Good art from Romita Jr. and a nice build to what should be a good ride should it sustain this quality for the next 11 issues.
