Venom was really depicted well here, and I enjoyed the back and forth angle from the view of Spider-Man with the POV of Venom. One thing I would recommend is perhaps a better antagonist, the one in this book was rather underwhelming to me. Regardless, a good read, and watching Venom lay waste on people as only he can? just sooo soooo good.
Entertaining read, I liked Venom's portrayal and I liked the villain even if he wasn't super memorable. Not enough snark from Spiderman would be my one complaint with him. Interesting enough to make me want to check out other Spiderman books in the series.
Though the story was a bit unconventional--gangsters, mutants, a superhero, and a supervillain?--it delivered much more content was was decidedly more engrossing than many of the Marvel novels I've been reading lately. The one issue that keeps me from giving Venom's Wrath an excellent rating is a higher-than-usual profanity count.
