Secret Wars #8

Postby Prophet_DNA » Thu May 10, 2018 10:24 am

I don't get it... I thought this was the first appearance on Venom? Or do they not consider the symbiote Venom until he bonds with someone else other than Spider-Man?

Correct, SW #8 is simply the origin of the symboite. ASM 252 & MTU 141 are the 1st appearances of the suit (though I believe ASM 252 actually came out like a week or two before MTU 141), Web of Spider-Man #18 is the 1st very minor appearance, or hinting, at Venom as it has a mysterious hand shove Peter into the path of a subway, freaking Peter right the hell out because his Spidey Sense didn't warn him. The hand was Eddie Brock's. Then nothing until ASM #298.

Easy mistake to make if you weren't buying comics off the rack at the time. Secret Wars #8 came out 8 months after the books Sigs mentioned.

"I would have happily, gladly, joyfully bought all of those books for cover price, as many as they had. If they had 1,000 copies of X-O #1 in the late 90's, I would have gladly paid $2,000 for them all." Joe VanHagar

Why are some comic collectors so proud to have fake OCD? Is it cool to pretend to be mentally ill?

Thanks guys! I was buying comics back then but I wasn't into much of Spider-Man at the time... more like Ghost Rider!
