Amazing Spider-Man 645 Point One

Marvel is starting their 'Point One' initiative in February. The Amazing Spider-Man is one of the launch titles and look who is on the cover!! From Marvel.com:

Geared for new and long-time readers alike, the all-new Marvel: Point One initiative delivers the perfect jumping on points for the biggest super hero series in the world! Beginning in February 2011, select Marvel comic series marked with a ".1" after the issue number feature full-length, self-contained stories by Marvel's top creators, laying the groundwork for the next year of storylines. From INVINCIBLE IRON MAN to AVENGERS to AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, each Marvel: Point One issue of the associated series not only begin major new storylines, but also seamlessly introduces new readers into the dynamic Marvel Universe and its popular super heroes.

Additionally, each issue bearing the Marvel: Point One branding will be followed in the same month by another issue of that series, delivering new fans another exciting installment of the series they enjoy.

I think that this is a great plan to get new readers interested in the current story lines. Even more great is the fact we get a sneak peak at the new Venom. He looks too much like the Gargan version to me. We also get a whited out version of someone next to him on the cover. My guess is Spider-Man in a new suit. Regardless, of who it is it looks like we will be starting 2011 off on the right foot!

What do you think of the 'new' Venom look?
