Tom Fowler Teases VENOM Pages

Well damn. I mean damn

If you'd ridden up on your bike last year to tell me Venom would be a must-read title in 2011, I'd have been all, "Pffffffft!" and made fun of your Cookie Monster bell. Even if I secretly thought it was kind of rad. But it's true. Rick Remender and Tony Moore delivered a top notch first issue, and I've been eagerly awaiting the second. Legless Flash Thompson playing John le Carre and Steve McQueen in symbiote infused black ops missions? It's a trip. 

Now we've got even more reason to sing its praises. Artist Tom Fowler. 

Fowler has hinted at a pending collaboration with Remender for a few weeks now on Twitter. During this past weekend's WonderCon, we got confirmation straight from the writer. You'll see the full interview on next week's video show, but since Fowler just posted some images to his blog, we may as well spill. Fowler will join the Venom art team, drawing #3, then alternating on issues with Tony Moore in one of the inkiest, fangiest, creepiest ongoings on the racks. 

Let's have a look. 

Your bike is still dumb. 


  1. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the reason I got Mr Fowler to create the Save The Date for my wedding. Can’t wait for this issue

  2. Saw the majority of this issue’s pages when I met Tom @ Wizard Word Toronto in March, and man, they are beautiful.

  3. Dynamism — if y’all haven’t read “Mysterius the Unfathomable,” go get it, for more like this.

  4. Those are crazy layouts. @iFanboy you guys have put up some great, GREAT pieces of art today! keep it up!

  5. Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    I’m pretending this is a Grim Fandango crossover. Gorgeous. 

  6. Whoa that inking is insane!

  7. No, Paul. YOUR bike is stupid.

  8. Where can I get a Cookie Monster bell for my bike?  (That needs to be in a “WANT!”)

  9. WOW. That’s all.

    @fuzzytypewriter The moment I saw the face on 3rd page, I got a flashback of playing that awesome game.

  10. New lesson: When Flash Venoms out, spikes ensue.

  11. Venominon…

  12. Looks great.  I hope this book sells well so that we get a nice long run with it.  Very excited for what the future holds.

  13. All a matter of taste. Since his work on Green Arrow I’m not too fond of his style.

  14. @Rhymer His style has changed significantly since that run. Tom will even tell you that’s not the best representation of style. The inking on that book also didnt help

  15. I haven’t read any of Fowler’s work, but htose Venom Pages look amazing.  WHat else did he do?
