venom joins guardians of the galaxy

GOtG - Venom
A few days back a preview image of the Free Comic Book Day cover of Guardians of the Galaxy showed a mysterious blacked out silhouette that many speculated as Venom.  I didn't post anything because nothing was confirmed, until now!  Per Newsarama, Venom is the newest member of the Guardians of the Galaxy:

As a reminder, The Guardians of the Galaxy Free Comic Book Day Special – free of course to comic shop visitors on May 3, 2014 at participating retailers – will offer readers their first glimpse at the “all-new Guardians of the Galaxy.” It sounds like Venom is there for a particular reason, and at the center of the story written by Brian Bendis with art by Nick Bradshaw. Here's Marvel initial description of the story: “The Guardians are about to welcome two new members – including Captain Marvel and one Mystery Marvel Superstar you’d never expect to see with the Guardians of the Galaxy! And this mysterious character is about to set off a chain reaction that takes our heroes to the farthest reaches of space – on a collision course with one of the deadliest threats in the cosmos!” And in a particular bit of synergy given Venom is best known as a Spider-Man character, the special will also feature a back-up story by Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli that the publisher says “lays the foundation for 2014’s top secret Spider-Man event…an all-new story that will rock the Wall-Crawler’s world to its core!”

How do you feel about Venom joining another team?  What about this top secret Spidey event?
