First Look: Venom #11

Venom is on the run. Who can he turn to for help?

Looks like some of Venom's past actions are coming back to haunt him. He's on the run and has no where to go. This is part of the new direction for VENOM. Check out the first look courtesy of Marvel.

Venom is on the run from his country and he’ll have to turn to the one person he despises the most for help in your first look at Venom #11! From critically acclaimed writer Rick Remender and red-hot artist Lan Medina, Venom has nowhere left to go and when he’s able to finally find some help…it may be the worst decision he’s made yet. That’s right, it’s the team-up you never thought you’d see as Venom teams with JACK-O-LANTERN! How bad can things be that Flash Thompson has to side with his archenemy? Find out this December, in Venom #11!

Holy crap! Is that Toxin's picture behind the guy with the fancy gun? Is he hunting Toxin as well? Does that mean we'll get to see Toxin make a reappearance in comics?! Am I getting my hopes up? YOU BET I AM!

Dude, don't turn to the bottle for help. Stark tried that, it didn't work out so well for him.

And please let somebody in so they can clean the room. Yuck!

Symbiotes are taking center stage in the Marvel Universe lately, I wouldn't be surprised if Toxin bade a comeback too.

For people interested in Venom and not wanting to start at the beginning, Remender said #10 is new reader friendly and starts the next chapter of Flash's story.

I don't see Hybrid in those pictures. Did marvel forget that there is another Symbiote out there?

Hybrid

I just read the Bio and the host of Hybrid (Scott Washington) lost the use of his legs. He is able to use his legs now with the use of the symbiote. That theme sounds familiar, but it is waaaaay better with the Flash Venom.

@The_Hero_Without_a_Name: Thanks. Good to know. With Remender writing Secret Avengers soon and Venom joining that team, I have been looking for a jumping on point. (or should I say jumping on point one)

Takes a true alcoholic to know the name and type of whisky just from the shape of the bottle.....lol

You do realize that guy with a gun is Eddie Brock, right?

If that's Eddie Brock with the gun - HOLY GARBAGE! -

Why is we should believe that Eddie Brock is some how going rouge Mercenary? - When all he ever was a photojournalist, a Schemer, and a liar that got busted and blamed Peter Parker for outing him? - Where exactly are we supposed to buy the fact that he somehow picked-up weapons training? - Far different shooting a Camera than a Gun - Some what the Heck??

I Love this book - I generally don't like darker titles like this but I definitely dig the Character Development and the angst Flash Thompson has to endure to recoup some resemblance of a normal life - and that of a soldier - through the struggle with the Venom symbiote.

This is my #1 book right now - but leave Eddie Brock to being a washed-up has-been - Eddie's character has been waaaay over used and abused - Anti-Venom (uuuuugggghhh!) - Had it been any other character other than Brock it might have been ok - the name alone "Anti-Venom" - that really is as bad as it gets!
