About this deal

This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees.

It does make for slightly weird reading just bc of the chunks of time taken out and summarized, which sometimes dumps the reader into a totally different situation and style. Venom is an interesting character starting out as a newly designed spiderman costume and becoming a sentient being.It is however a good example of art and writing styles throughout the years and shockingly for comics a well executed plan over several months. At halfway point of this 300+ pages collection, Peter finds the truth about his black suit with the help of fantastic four.

I highly recommend Spider-Man: Birth of Venom to those looking for a greatest-hits of the symbiote, spanning from its attachment to Spider-Man all the way up to its bonding with Brock to give us Venom. Now, I understand putting together almost 10 years of development is no easy feat, and that some cuts had to be made, but the story still feels disconnected and its thrown-together approach doesn't mix too well. on the other, maybe i will just watch the films, listen to riley, rather than look at more superhero comics. We move on to the next issue, where MJ tells Peter all about her tragic past and the Hobgoblin strikes, attacking this guy and demanding 10% of his income. The fact that this is Spider-Man makes it easier for individuals reading who are not big superhero fans to follow, because most people have heard of Spider-Man, so it's easier to understand the general backstory when you are reading it, even if you don't like Marvel or superheroes.While this book definitely had some silly stuff you usually find in older comics, it was still very entertaining. It starts with how Spiderman gets the black costume, then has some issues from Amazing Spiderman of him learning about the costume and fighting crime with it, then his separation from it, followed by the first two battles Spidey has with Eddie Brock/Venom.

Despite being a big Marvel fan, this was the first time that I read about the earlier stories involving Spider-Man and Venom. I will say, and I know this is personal preference, but I just HATE the 80s comic art, which was the last chunk of this collection.I think in a later issue in this book it Peter Parkers spider senses were explained three times in one chapter.
