It is so good to finally get to the fight that I have been waiting for. Just by looking at the cover of the book you can see that Toxin and Venom finally get the chance to go head to head and it is just as violent and vicious as you could imagine. It is incredibly sad that Eddie Brock is bonded to another symbiote but it is not surprising how fast he does bond. He works with Toxin like they are old friends and is able to beat Flash into the ground with very little effort. Thank goodness Flash had a secret weapon up his sleeve...but you'll have to read the issue to see that.
I think the surprising attribute of this comic is the weird creature that had been fighting the two guys previously. The mystery as to what it is exactly still stands in the air but it is something to drag me into many more issues. It seems that there is more than one of them (which isn't a giant surprise) but the reasoning for them being there is. I will delve more into that in the next issue's review so that I am sure to not spoil anything.
I have to close this by saying poor Flash. The guy just can't seem to catch a break and I don't think he is going to any time soon. His life seems to be a roller-coaster that he just can't get off. I am glad that I have stuck with this title considering it keeps getting better. I just hope there isn't another lull for a long time.
