    Default Venom Island by Cates and Bagley

    So issue 21 of Cates’ Venom run is the start of a new arc called Venom Island.

    Mark Bagley is on art duties.

    What do we all think about this.

    I hope this does not mean that Stegman is not finished on the title.

    Are you thinking that this is the island that Venom ‘retired’ to after Spidey tricked him into thinking he killed him ?

    You won’t find a bigger Bagley fan then me and he is one of the very best Venom artist ever. That being said, I’m not sure if his style works as well as stegmans for this particular Book.

    I guess Venom doesn't come off the final fight with Carnage unscathed (although no one should've expected him to do).

    Bagley back on Venom again? Not that I mind, but it seems to happen a lot .

    Kaine needs to show up. He played a big part in the original, he needs to duke it out with Brock.

    Well, it's obvious this won't be like Spider-Island, as this seems the same island where Eddie and the symbiote decided to retire after they believed that they managed to kill Spider-Man. Of course, Peter only faked his own death; and it had to reveal himself to Venom when he needed his help to stop Carnage for the first time.

    I agree. #346 and 347, but 347 especially, are incredibly creepy. With Larsen's art, the whole story is basically an increasingly bedraggled Spider-Man barely holding off the literal walking sarlacc that is Venom:

    "I should describe my known nature as tripartite, my interests consisting of three parallel and disassociated groups; a) love of the strange and the fantastic, b) love of abstract truth and scientific logic, c) love of the ancient and the permanent. Sundry combinations of these strains will probably account for my...odd tastes, and eccentricities."
