Setup for a new arc
OK, so now Venom is a good guy - neat. Not sure when or why this happened as I've been away from comics for a long time, but it does setup an interesting rivalry for the coming books since Brock knows something Parker doesn't. The story is your standard starting story arc content of "WTF?" and you can't really tell how things are going to go. But I did add TAS to my pull list so we'll see how this goes.
What I liked the most in this book was the bonus story at the end. Thanks...But No Thanks is a great story of Spider-Man trying to get back to his roots since he's been spending so much time with The Avengers and FF. It's a great story and I won't ruin any of it with descriptions. If it were a little longer I'd say you should pick up this issue just to read that story
