Format: Paperback
The stories from issues #23-25 and #28-30 of the 2011 Venom series are collected as Venom: Devil's Pack. The `missing' issues are collected as part of the Minimum Carnage storyline.

These are both action-packed adventures, with good scripting and artwork. There is some character development also, as Flash Thompson tries to move on in his civilian life. The first story is a much more overtly supernatural one, as Venom comes into conflict with Daimon Hellstrom, only to discover that as a result of an earlier adventure, he is himself now endowed with a bit of supernatural power... He also discovers that there is something brewing in the Underworld that will no doubt infect a later story, as well as recruiting a new supporting character, reporter Katy Kiernan of the Daily Inquisitor. The second story, set after the Minimum Carnage storyline, involves a group of unpleasant villains called U-Foes, who have set up home in Philadelphia and are carrying out experiments with advanced technology on unwilling locals. Venom is assisted by new not-girlfriend the Valkyrie in this escapade.

The nature of the powered characters does mean that the visuals do tend more to the horror than the pure superheroic end of the artistic spectrum, and so may appeal to horror-comic fans as much as superhero ones. I enjoyed it, but didn't feel as invested in the story as I would have with more established favourites. However, I did go on to read the next couple of volumes straight afterwards...

Well Venom is back...

This collection of Venom Comics will pass an hour of your time, but that is about it.

It seems in Venom we where introduced to an amazingly deep and powerful 'super'hero, but since we have been waiting, passing the time with the odd graphic novel here and there about the same person, but a watered down version and with no real direction.

I was hopping for a lot with this one, after the last couple I was expecting a real breakthrough within this series, but I am once again left with nothing but hope in the next instalment.

The art work is fantastic and the lettering and layout is great, but the story is weak, playing of older stories which are equally as weak.

What we need is a 'super'hero who doesn't want it or think he deserve it, who is battling with his past just as much if not more than the present and with that reality in his mind that he doesn't quite 'fit in' with the rest of the superheroes, what we don't need is what we get, a weak watered down character who is invincible just to hide the fact there is no depth to him.

Let hope for next time, right?!

I read a library copy of the paperback.
I have really enjoyed this Agent Venom character. I like the fact that this is Flash Thompson, I applaud the history of the symbiote that has led to using it in a lobotomized state in this manner. I like the way this series is written and the art fits really well.
There is a good overlap here between events here and events in the Rick Remender Secret Avengers series that also stars Flash and his `girlfriend' Valkyrie.
What I'm not sure about and don't see the need for is the addition of a demon into the mix. There is a drive here to make Venom more supernatural /magic in adventures which is fine but the scientific use of an alien symbiote is background enough.
I hope this isn't the beginning of the end.
I fear Flash as Agent Venom will not last very long in Marvel history but while he is around I'd recommend the title as a refreshingly good book.

Im really enjoying this new Venom series,Flash Thompson and his symbiote are really evolving together and creating a fresh take on Venom. Very enjoyable read and cannot wait to get the next TPB.
