Three Comics That Rewrite Venom Continuity, This Week

Posted by September 16, 2018 Comment

It’s a busy week for Venom continuity coming. Three comics from Marvel, each taking the character’s origins apart. There’s the Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1, from the point of view of the symbiote talking about Peter Parker. But sadly wiping out the Deadpool Secret Secret Wars continuity plug-in… and somehow reminding me of this scene from The Inbetweeners.

Mind you, the Venom monthly series, Eddie and Venom have absorbed previous symbiote host Rex Strickland and the resultant narratives remind you of Deadpool’s own competing voices. So maybe that’s a way back in?

While in Venom: First Host, Eddie is bonded with yet another symbiote and is learning its different powers and skills, while the Venom symbiote is off with his original Kree warrior host.

And here are previews of them all…

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL #1
(W) Saladin Ahmed (A) Garry Brown (CA) Aco
TIES THAT BIND!
Years ago, Spider-Man came back from an alien world with a fantastic new costume – one he eventually learned was a living alien symbiote looking to bond with him permanently!  But before he rejected the costume that went on to become VENOM, many a night the symbiote would creep onto Peter, and unbeknownst to its host, take them out into the night!
Now, for the first time, see just what the symbiote steered Peter into during these mysterious nighttime excursions! Saladin Ahmed (BLACK BOLT) weaves an ALL-NEW nightmare fairy tale, illustrated by the incomparable Garry Brown, in what is sure to be a dream book for any Spider-Man fan!
