About this deal

And this collection has a giant hole in its center, leaving out Gang Wars, Peter's wedding to Mary Jae, Kraven's Last Hunt, and more. Venom intended to kill him with the sounds of the bell but Peter was able to escape the web ball and they fought on the roof of the Church with Spidey outsmarting Venom and knocking him off the Church. We wonder why Hydro-Man suddenly popped up, or what happened to the Rose, and the Hobgoblin, but none of their reasons ever connect with us. Honestly, apart from the two pages of Secret Wars, I feel like I could have skipped this volume entirely. Starts with Spider-Man breaking a fight with some criminals and then he and Black Cat knock out the rest of them.

I can't tell, but the sky's blue now and it was pretty dark in contrast when Puma attacked the second time. There are many side stories during this time with Peter in love with Black cat then MJ comes back into his life. The main problem with Birth of Venom is that when it was originally written, collected editions of every issue of every comic series weren't made.

The last 20% of Birth of Venom contain Venom's first encounter with Spider-Man, and these issues are pretty good – better than most first encounters between Spidey and a new villain. but then i have to think of the likely readers at least of superheroes comics, kids at least at first, then getting more ‘adult’ over the years. Venom is so popular among fans for a reason and his battles with Spidey here are a pretty good showing of why.

With a new Spiderman movie coming out next month I thought it was prudent to take a look back at my favorite superhero as a child.

I do think (after Todd McFarlane takes over as artist for the series) that the Venom story (and the art) later brings Venom to the greatness that most of us think about when thinking about Venom and I really enjoyed the later portion of this collection. As a result, nearly without fail, every new issue contained an in-story summary of the last issue's events.The incredible coincidence that the Fantastic Four use the two weaknesses (fire and sound) on the symbiote on the first try was pretty convenient. As Venom, Eddie vowed to make Peter's life miserable so for his first act, he snuck up behind Mary Jane when Peter was not around and completely scared her.
