- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?

Verdict - 3.3

- I'm not really into this cover, it's a combination of the art and the pose. Something that could have made the cover really nice is if Flash Thompson's shadow as Venom instead to go with the title "The Evil Inside Us All". Luckily the art in the issue was well done and makes up for the cover art. Being a .1 issue I feel they did an OK job of conveying the recent events, but more could have been explored. I am however confused as to when the events of this issue took place due to Hellstorm being in The Raft, and the events in New Avengers. Their really wasn't much to the story, we find Flash in conflict with the Venom symbiote while also trying to figure out what is to become from his deal with the Satan from the Circle of Four arc. In the final pages we do get a lead-in to the upcoming issues with Flash seemingly not always in control of his own body, and that he decides to leave New York. I really enjoyed Venom up to now and this was a so-so issue, here's hoping the next story arc will be great.
