I really enjoyed this volume. I never expected Remender to form one deadly group of villains that Venom has fought since have the villains that Venom has fought since issue #1. The battle against the Savage Six is like Spider-Man's first battle against the Sinister Six, where he has to face each villain one after another in order to protect his loved ones.
This volume also reveals the identity of Crime-Master; there were a number of clues leading up to the big reveal that long, long time Spider-Man readers may be able to guess his identity.
Flash Thompson has been a really interesting protagonist. He really harkens back to the early Spider-Man, where he struggles with having lead 2 distinct lives and letting down the people in his personal life.
This is my first review( here anyways) hope it is ok. :D
