That's not a knock on the graphic novel, but more so on the quality of comic writing that created Venom in the first place.

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. on the other, maybe i will just watch the films, listen to riley, rather than look at more superhero comics. I think this graphic novel would have been better off being titled something along the lines of The Alien Costume Saga (like the animated series of the '90s had named this story arc) rather than marketing it as solely Venom's origin.I genuinely find it so ugly and bizarre it's distracting to my whole reading experience, but again, I do know that's not a universal opinion. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

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 being much older, I wanted to look into all of the Venom stories of the old comics that I was too young to appreciate before. Stuff like Aunt May's fight with Peter, Black Cat's love/hate relationship with Spidy/Peter and the sudden appearance of Mary Jane and aftermath were pure family drama. Starts with Spider-Man breaking a fight with some criminals and then he and Black Cat knock out the rest of them.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.

This isn't to say that Birth of Venom is all bad, as when it finally gets going, it's rather exciting. I was surprised how both amusing and threatening was as I expected that before his introduction he was just some rando, unlike a character with some built-up development like Eddie from Spider-Man TAS. Keeping Venom's name out of the title would have given readers an unexpected twist when they finally do see Venom emerge for the first time. Readers have whined about how Venom coming to MJ's apartment and trying to exploit Parker's position is so demeaning to MJ's character.Using sonic weapons they were able to temporarily disable Venom and inform him that his "son" is killing innocents. 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.
