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 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. Spidy isolates the symbiote and places it in Baxter building for safekeeping, but it gets out and binds itself again with Peter. I think in a later issue in this book it Peter Parkers spider senses were explained three times in one chapter. The cool conceit of Peter Parker getting a new costume that also happens to be an alien symbiote originated in Secret Wars. I can't tell, but the sky's blue now and it was pretty dark in contrast when Puma attacked the second time.It's not bad, but it barely hints at what's to come for Venom, and it's kind of a slog to get through. The incredible coincidence that the Fantastic Four use the two weaknesses (fire and sound) on the symbiote on the first try was pretty convenient. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. 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.

Before going to fight Venom, Spider-Man visits Ann Weying, Eddie Brock's ex-wife in the story and asks her about Eddie. It's disappointing really, because a major part of the Spider-Man universe is its character development, and the symbiote is the only one we really have background and development with. All we get is some exposition about how Spider-Man apparently ruined Brock's life when he solved the Sin Eater case (from The Death of Jean DeWolff).She tells him about Eddie and about an amusement park from his childhood where Peter rationalizes is Venom keeping his parents.

While at the church contemplating suicide, he merged with the symbiote to form one of Spidey's most lethal and powerful foes, Venom.

Ann then convinces Eddie that Spidey saves innocent lives and Venom decides that if he kills Peter, future innocents will die so he tells Spider-Man that he will hunt him no more as long as Peter does the same.
