    *However, this leads to the BIG negative I had with this issue, and that's the scene with Gargan/Venom and the hooker. For all intends and purposes, what Gargan was doing was tantamount to an attempted rape, although technically he was actually going to eat her--as if THAT were any better. It just seemed widely out of place for an all-ages book like Amazing Spider-Man.

Agreed, although I think this probably had more to do with the art than the writing (can't really be sure without seeing the panel description in the script). Regardless, I was unimpressed with the art this issue, particularly how Harry was drawn. Otherwise it was entertaining, particularly Norah.
