Collects Venom (2011) #1-5. America...meet your newest Hero! The lethal alien symbiote known as Venom is in the custody of the U.S. military…and with a familiar face from Spider-Man’s world inside the suit, the government’s own personal Spidey is going into action as one of the nation’s top covert agents in hostile territory!
A whole new take on Venom
Really good story-telling, great artwork, and a great way to start a new hero. Unfortunate that they don't currently have the collected #6-9 but they do have the next two chapters.
Although Flash Thompson hasn't always been one of my favorite characters, his turn at wearing the Symbiote really adds an element of humanity to the already established super-villain, Venom. I found it easier connect with the character as oppose to Eddie Brock or Mac Gargan.
I won't say that I relate to the Flash but I can certainly see his where he's going and how he views his life. You add in the fact that he's working for the government, and how he's coping with everything that's going on, and you have a truly unique version of Venom. I recommend this comic to any Marvel fan.
