"Predator" meets "Cape Fear" Oct. 1 2011
By Luis A. Reynaga - Published on
Format: Paperback
If any one you have ever seen Martin Scorsese's remake of Cape Fear starring Robert De Niro, you've essentially seen what the early Venom stories were like. An unrelenting force of nature mentally crippling our hero in relatively high tension tales of twisted revenge told in the mighty Marvel manner. It goes without saying that this isn't Watchmen or Sandman, it's very early nineties stuff but above all, they are truly well written and drawn stories that are very easy to enjoy.

As a fan with a nostalgic connection to Venom, I'm glad Marvel has finally packaged all the post McFarlane Venom tales. From Erik Larsen's visual evolution to Mark Bagley's perfectly realized version of Venom's look, it should be a pleasure for any and all to read.

Highly recommended to those who either love Venom or to those who think the age of symbiotes at Marvel was nothing but hot air. These issues are pure fun.

For the completionist in me. June 25 2012
By NDX - Published on
Format: Paperback
Many many moons ago, I stood in front of the comic spinner at the local candy store as my father played his daily (losing) lotto numbers where I spotted a book whose cover instantly caught my attention. Spider-Man #361, the debut of Carnage. Now, at this time, I never was a huge Spider-Man fan, I was more into Ghost Rider, Deathlok, and whatever my father saw fit to bring home. But this cover, of a red and black creature assaulting Spider-Man in such a way, it made me by it. And I bought the next 2 issues that followed, and this story stuck with me. Not only did it introduce me to Carnage, but it was my first taste of Venom as well. I was too late to see the stories of his hatred of Spider-Man, but I caught on fairly quickly with these three issues, and the 30th Anniversary issues that followed in Amazing Spider-Man #373 to #375. All these books, and more, all reprinted here, reprinting some amazing art from Mark Bagely and Eric Larsen. Oddly enough, this book also reprints Spider-Man: Special Edition, the Trial of Venom book you once had to send away through charity, if I recall correctly. Took a lot of convincing to get my mom to do that way back then.

Those books were the main reason I bought these, to be able to enjoy these books again as I did when I was a youth (makes me sad thinking back that far, but that's another story for another time). But, this also fills a hole I have in my trade paperback shelf. See, I already had the lackluster (to me) Birth of Venom, Venom: Lethal Protector and Maximum Carnage (a top 10 story for me since I originally read and owned all 14 books of it near 20 years ago), and this was the one piece I was missing.

I have to say, the art in this book still stands to this day (particularly because both Larsen and Bagely are still active today) and the stories are still solid. You can definitely see how the times were effecting the stories in this book, particularly the Carnage issues, but I feel they still do well to tell a great story, and if you are a fan of Venom or Carnage, this is a must own book for you.

Gave this a 4 out of 5 because, after 20 years, there are some eye-rolling moments in this that stand out now that I'm a grizzled old man.

The Debut of Carnage and Further VENOM stories! Jan. 7 2014
By GSD - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While very dated in the comics world, Spider-Man: The Vengeance of Venom, collects all of the original post Tod McFarlane Venom stories. Still written by Venom's creator, David Michelinie, these tales are basically Venom's return after his original appearances, followed by the spawning of the "red" symbiote and the debut of Carnage.Art duties are handled by Mark Bagley Jr. and Eric Larson.

Not essential Spider-Man tales, but very well done, conssidering it was the 1990's.
If you miss old Eddie Brock Venom and McFarlane/Larsen writing, then this is for you. June 15 2014

Very well produced. 80s and early spider man was the best, devoid of constant multi title crossovers and editorial interference.
Early Venom and Carnage July 11 2013
By David the Collector - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a kid I grew up watching Spider-man TAS and Spider-man Unlimited, and loved the character of Venom. So when they finally made a collection of some of the early appearances, I had to get it. This collection has great Venom stories and also the first appearance of Carnage. I love how Venom is just one of Spider-man's greatest villain. Venom is Spider-man's toughest foe and he can barely even defeat Venom. Features art by Mark Bagley, and guest appearances by the Human Torch, Mister Fantastic, and Daredevil.
