Venom continues to battle against demonic foes, but can the symbiote-clad superhero successfully take ‘em down? Read on to find out.
The official description from Marvel:
The effects of the Savage Six continue to ripple through the life of Flash Thompson! And as the supernatural ante is upped, the world hangs in the balance!
The first story arc by the new creative team draws to a satisfying finish, worthy of the fans that have clung to this series from the get-go. From start to finish, this issue deals with the mystical demonic nature of the Marvel universe, but it does it in a way that’s both accessible and exciting. And I got to be honest, the ideas brought forth, the reveals having to do with Venom specifically have got me really excited for the series moving forward.
Cullen Bunn delivers a fantastic script that offers just enough information to evolve a somewhat intricate plot. His characterization of Flash is spot on to the established tropes, as he continues to mine the character for some natural tidbits that really inform some of the more unique moments contained here. My only gripe, is that there were some scenes that just felt a bit long-winded with unnecessary dialogue that hindered the pace of the issue, but overall those were few and far between.
Thony Silas does a solid job on the art as he continues his stint on the title. His pencil work yields actions that keeps the established flux of the symbiote while offering some trully dynamic shots that just make our hero look awesome. His style and unique visual sense ultimately elevate the quality of the book. With that said there were a few minor moments where details seemed to be a bit lacking as panels looked rather rushed.
Venom #25 is another solid addition to the series, that’s truly worth any fans time and money. Recommended.
