"What oldschool said"
The Shadow, 2008
Remender's VENOM run has been brilliant. I'm defintiely sorry to see him go but I'm more than willing to give Bunn a chance. His FEARLESS mini was great, the Dr. Rot Wolverine story was solid (if not mind-blowing) and I dug the first issue of DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE so I think Venom is in pretty good hands.
I'm more than willing to give Bunn a chance when he takes over Venom. With Remender still using the character in Secret Avengers, the two writers have to be communicating and bouncing ideas back and forth. Not to take anything away from Cullen Bunn but this seems pretty close to how the book was working the last few months.
Remender really surprised me with Venom and as other said will be sad to see him geaux. However I followed this book through "COF" and that was pretty rough TBH. Let's see if Bunn can deliver and keep it going. I wanna see how "Minum Carnage" turns out and then lets see what is in store for Venom/Flash this upcoming New Year.
Venom under Remender is easily my favorite and most anticipated book each month. Sad to see him go but luckily he is still writing Venom in SA so that is awesome. Venom and Remender are the reasons I am still getting SA.
I have hope for Bunn. The Dr. Rot arc was slightly above average in Wolverine. So I have hope Venom won't drop too far in awesomeness.
So is Shalvey a guest artist or is he sticking around for Bunn?
I had a letter printed once in Amazing Spider-Man #604!
Before Marvel NOW!, my pull list was 14 Marvel books. Now, it's more like 5 Marvel, 7 DC, and a few indies.

He will be missed but now I'm going to follow whatever he works on next. this venom run has been really great imo. the book really hit its stride after the spider island tie ins. they successfully made the jack o lantern really creepy and i thought the circle of 4 was really entertaining. there were even a couple of phish references by jack haha. im going to keep following after he's gone and hope for the best
I came into the series late but man Remender got me liking both Flash AND Venom, both of which I was different about prior. Although I'll be leaving when Rick does I still have back issues to look forward to getting.
