    That one's easy. John doesn't work at Ravencroft anymore. He's called in favors from the staff from when he used to be the Chief of Security there. He's explicitly referred to in Cult of Carnage as Agent Jameson.

    I still don't understand one thing. During Venomized, Cletus was bonded to a different symbiote, then turned into a Poison. If both the symbiote and the host end up dissolving in the Poison, how did Cassady survive the experience?

    And now that I mention them, do you think the Poisons will return to defeat Knull and the others?

    One detail I really liked in this was the homage to Venom pushing peter in front of the train in a Web Of Spider Man issue.

    Read Web Of Venom: Carnage Born and that will show you what happened to Cletus between Venomized and now.

    Basically when Poison Cletus crash landed on Earth after those events, the Poison/symbiote surrounding him shattered, while also still killing him, leading to the cult resurrecting and bonding him with the Grendel.

    He does not. First issue is more or less set up. Eddie and Pete re-establishing their dynamic, bringing in the Maker, and showing how batshit insane Cletus is.

    someone make cliffnotes
    Our main character, a socially awkward outcast, gains newfound confidence and arrogance before committing a string of horrid acts. He then wears a fancy suit and proceeds to dance like a maniac to music that isn't actually there playing around him.

    Read #1 -- really enjoyed it. Even without Ben

    Has Stegman's art ever looked better? Jeez oh man. Glad to know he's a fellow Ryan and a fellow Michigander to boot!

    I was already reading the Silver Surfer mini, so that adds an extremely fun aspect to this storyline. I definitely recommend picking that up for anyone who hasn't.

    Pure Speculation: Andi becomes the new Demogoblin

    -Pav, who wonders if Firestar will show up...

    The Hickman X-Men run has been in the works for a long time. According to the Directors Cut, the script for #1 was finished in November 2018.

    It is also a bigger deal to have a relaunch of the X-books after a fallow period than a crossover between Spider-Man and Venom (even if this is their first interaction after efforts to give Venom a unique identity outside of Spider-Man.)

    Awesome start (though Funeral Pyre made for a great prequel). One thing that really has me interested is how Carange's appearance might continue to change as he absorbs more codices.

    Scream was great. I love how the new Scream is essentially now a mash-up of three different personalities, and that Scream is going to be the one who's going to be fighting Andi. With Lethal Protector, are you referring to Separation Anxiety?

    An Absolute Carnage animation/tie-in that shows how much crazy Norman is and a few spoilers of the future:



    Yeah, Harry will definitely die... I hope he brings Molten Man back first. He would be the perfect bodyguard against symbiotes.
