Venom: Tooth and Claw #2

Venom: Tooth and Claw #2 - Comic of the DayI tried to get through Venom: Tooth and Claw #2 but after reading yesterday's comic of the day I was so burned out on ridiculousness, I couldn't finish this comic book. Instead, I decided to focus on another aspect of issue #2 which I noticed from Venom: Tooth and Claw #1: the ads and extras.

The advertisements in Venom: Tooth and Claw are amazing. My favorite is actually from the last issue... on the inside of the back cover there is an ad for a Star Trek card game, and on the outside of the back cover there is an ad for a Star Wars card game (this ad is actually on the back of both issues, 1 and 2). Seeing these fanboy rich universes which hate each other so close together makes me smile in a "there are bigger nerds than I" kind of way.

Any two page spreads? Of course. A huge Action Man ad lies in the middle of Venom: Tooth and Claw #2 and confirms what every viewer thinks when laying eyes on this 12 inch action figure: who the f*** is Action Man? I hope Action Man was worth the cost of the 2 page spread. By my assumption that no person has heard of Action Man, I would say he was not worth the price.

To be honest, one part of the comic I did like was the fan art section at the end. I mean who doesn't enjoy a bunch of childrens' crappy art at the end of a crappy comic book? If I wanted my suffering to continue I would read the last and third issue...which thankfully, I do not own.
