The symbiote you know and love has returned to New York City. No more "Agent of the Cosmos." No more "Lethal Protector." It's time for a new Venom, and it's great to be bad.

A suspect that right here in preview... it's just Venom.

Art looks great but I'm a bit skeptical with the story just like with most of their ongoing titles.

I am checking this and Thanos out, but I don't expect either to go very far.

Space Knight was great. I hope it continues. Sandoval is a natural fit. I like it.

So how many people does this thing kill this time?

@mark_stephen: In comics homeless white guys, well-to-do white guys, and nameless thugs don't count as "people." They're all fair game for casualties. So as of now, the kill count is 0.

I'll probably buy this after it comes out and if it gets decent reviews. Based off this first couple of pages, I'm not too sure.

Let Kaine Parker become Venom, I always felt he'd be the perfect host, just like when he was the other. He's definitely in need of Venom at the moment and it would be a cool twist imo

The art looks great but I love my Space Venom defender of the people stories. It's like Mass Effect but with Flash fucking Thompson. NO BODY ASKED FOR THIS! Agent Venom fighting for The USA was cool. Then he became a Space marine...but this is dumb. Why come back to earth. It's boring and Carol Danvers is ruining everyone's stories. Venom was tamed...it's sentient and a good guy...f this.

He had no choice. The Guardians spaceship was destroyed. The team all but broke up. Venom, Angela, Kitty, and Thing all left to go elsewhere, and shortly after, apparently (probably to be told in flashback here), Flash and Venom separated.

I'm actually completely unwilling to accept or give a new host a chance. I already saw what happens to awesome characters once they lose the suit. Im not going to read this so Flash can become a character hardly used and rarely used well like Brock.

Why would you throw away so much development for Flash and the symbiote in favor of another host?

#27 Posted by Dedpool (692 posts) - - Show Bio

@teerack: I am with you. But I think I like the fact that they're not making the Symbiote an outright evil entity anymore. Depending on the mindset of the person it can be Noble or savage. Also kind of hope the new Venom crosses paths with Deadpool after the Back in Black series.

First it was all like "oh it's not Eddie? screw this new venom!" Now people are like "oh it's not Flash? screw this new venom!"

Honestly, I'd like to see Eddie come back as Venom but we may never see that happen, sadly.

Does anybody know how a preview works? Maybe this issue will answer all the questions.

Plus i can clearly see some haven't read Venom in a long time.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I see people asking for Eddie Brock, but had they kept up, they'd know why that wouldn't work.

I try to reserve judgement until I've actually read the issue, you know, the whole issue, not a page or two that have been previewed on a site. It'll be interesting to see what happens next. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Flash as Venom.

This is just the first couple pages guys.. let's give it a chance..! I can't say I have total confidence but who knows..? It could end up being very interesting..! I hope so..!

@supermanwithatan01: I'm not sure that would work. Isn't Kaine dying from the Carrion virus rather than simple clone degeneration? The symboite can handle a lot of things, but the Carrion virus might be more than it can keep at bay.

Didn't we just have another venom solo run with Flash? Hopefully this doesn't come out rushed.

i like my venom with a hint of good to him, a lethal protector is the most i will accept. eddie or flash. everyt ime i get use to a host they switch it up again ffs. Took a while for me to get use to flash but ok great he was a good guy again there was character development, the symbiote was cured, time for it to do good.

JUST KIDDING

I feel pretty bad for the symbiote, its been through just as much as peter if not more lol.

i hope this is mania's symbiote on someone else

So what happens to Flash now? I don't want this guy to end up dead or in comic book limbo. He's had such good development with the symbiote and I'd hate to see that all disappear.

And isn't Venom gonna end up with a criminal in this series. I recall reading a preview that mentioned he'd have just one host.

Actually, really grateful to Marvel for this, and the other planet-bound ex-GotG titles. I was trying to figure out ways to cut back on my spending and they've just made it so much easier for me.
