vibes that happened with Venom and Peter at the end, which I suppose makes sense but also felt sort of out of left field after the rest of the collection.

In fact, the first half seems to be leading up to a climactic confrontation with the Hobgoblin, only to completely skip it once we finally know enough about the symbiote so that Venom actually makes sense.

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.

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. I think in a later issue in this book it Peter Parkers spider senses were explained three times in one chapter. All we get is some exposition about how Spider-Man apparently ruined Brock's life when he solved the Sin Eater case (from The Death of Jean DeWolff). Not knowing this, Venom goes to Peter's old apartment but only finds the Black Cat, who was there to renew her relationship with Peter.

Actually it's not, because if you read the issues before Venom comes along on the ongoing Amazing Spider-Man series that's included in this volume, and the issues that's after Venom goes away, you'll pretty much feel the good ol'feeling of "you only appreciate what you have once it's gone" and this one proves that shit right here. I think that would have slightly helped this collection, since readers would not have been anticipating Venom the whole time and thus could not be disappointed when he only shows up at the very end. I know this review seems overly negative at first, but at the end of the day, I had my fun with a good chunk of the book, so high two stars.It was fun to read some classic issues of Spider-Man from my youth, though this is one Frankensteined story pulled together from various series, and with various butchered bits from individual issues. 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. This Trade Paperback retells Venom's origin, starting with when Spider-Man got his black suit and when he got rid of it and it merged with Eddie Brock to form Venom.

I can't tell, but the sky's blue now and it was pretty dark in contrast when Puma attacked the second time. At halfway point of this 300+ pages collection, Peter finds the truth about his black suit with the help of fantastic four.

Because when Spidey manages to get the symbiote off of himself in the church, he then starts dying from the bells (I guess?

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. While this book definitely had some silly stuff you usually find in older comics, it was still very entertaining. 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. You see, Brock thought he got the scoop when he interviewed the supposed Sin Eater for his newspaper, but it turned out that guy was just a fake. Characters like Mary Jane, who, at the first sign of trouble, literally runs to cry in her teddy bear instead of showing the bravery she's more commonly known for today.While at the church contemplating suicide, he merged with the symbiote to form one of Spidey's most lethal and powerful foes, Venom. As a result, nearly without fail, every new issue contained an in-story summary of the last issue's events.
