"Put together an arms shipment, terrorists, and the high-rolling mercenary called Chance, and what have you got? You've got pretty big trouble for everyone's favorite wall-crawler in "Chance Encounter!" Also of note for all you Venom collectors that don't know: this also happens to be the first cameo appearance of Eddie Brock. With the second Venom film coming out shortly, the McFarlane Connection, and the way the market is right now, this book has a ton of room to grow as far as value is concerned, especially if CGC announces a signing with the popular creator.
