Amazing Spider-Man Review

    I can’t recall if I’ve mentioned previously on goodreads my passive feelings towards symbiotes, but I’m probably one of the few spider-man fans that doesn’t care for them that much. Aside from Agent Venom and a few other storylines, I always find symbiote to be boring and same old same old. And other than making Flash the anti-toxin, this felt like that.

For me, having read a lot of the Spider-Man and Venom stories that led up to this crossover, I had a 5-star experience.

    This is a mini-event story which sees the Amazing Spider-Man and Venom titles crossover. Black Cat and her gang are attacked by Maniac who has a symbiote that can take over and control and unlimited number of people. Spider-Man, Flash Thompson and the current holder of the Venom symbiote Eddie Brock get tangled up in the mess.There's some good ideas here.

I liked the confrontation between Flash and Eddie as they argue over who should have the symbiote. I liked a brief section where Spidey is being controlled- evil Spider-Man is always fun and Dan Slott knows this. The Black Cat is also great here, becoming a hero for the story rather than a villain. I've said before that re-using old villains and concepts can just lead to a story that feels like we've had it before. And to an extent this feels the same. For me, symbiotes aren't all that interesting- I enjoyed Venom in the Guardians of the Galaxy and in a cosmic context but Venom in New York is nothing new. The story tries too hard to celebrate the history of Venom and in doing so fails to tell a decent story. At least I felt this tied together better than other crossovers I've read. The single issues don't necessarily focus entirely on the titular character so here we actually get a story which runs directly through all the issues which is nice. There's some good ideas and the volume is well put-together but the story just isn't that strong.

    “Symbiotic relationships aren’t all that healthy.”A fun and action-packed collection of Spider-Man-Venom-Flash-Thompson-Hellfire-Black-Cat team-up involving some zombie Maniac symbiote thing. Although the last issue (and pretty much any other issue not written by Slott) is pretty awful writing, I can’t give the arc a low rating simply because I had too much fun. There have been some weak symbiote storylines in history, but I’ve generally always enjoyed them.

There have been some weak symbiote storylines in history, but I’ve generally always enjoyed them. It’s something about the familiar risk and pull towards losing control and the way it feels ironic that that is the light to the dark of normalcy that I find so intriguing. Eddie Brock is always a welcome character, of course. I wished there was a better underlying characterization for him as we only get a shallow glimpse of his compulsiveness, but I didn’t mind too much as long as I received the same relief he felt when rejoining with his other half. I suppose if one does not have an emotional connection to Venom or Maniac or Carnage or any of this symbiote stuff, this storyline may seem completely and utterly stupid. I can see it being pretty stupid, sure. But I liked it anyway.

    I'm not really a fan of anything Venom but this event was really enjoyable! I loved how this played out and how low level this crossover was. I believe this event can be read without prior knowledge of what's going on in Venom or Amazing Spider-man currently. This was just a really solid, fun story and loved how it all played out!

    Not the most exciting or greatest for a Venom comic, but at least there's Spidey!

    Nuda jak pytel. Že Slottův Spider-Man už není to pravé se ví už nějaký ten pátek, ale ta postupná stagnace Venoma, který začal jako jedna z nejslibnějších věcí je doslova tragická.
