Rich Johnston for Bleeding Cool:

So we have a new looking Venom as well… with all sorts of Dark Elf symbols. And yes, it is rather Fear Itself-like but Venom never got a hammer in that one.

I’ve always found it a little awkward how similar to Spider-Man and Venom Todd McFarlane’s Spawn looked, given how soon after his run on Spider-Man that he created the character.

However, we now have Venom adopting a new look that essentially fills in whatever gaps existed between McFarlane’s design work on both franchises and characters.

It’s taken almost thirty years but the circle is finally complete I suppose.
