Venom: Dark Origin #1

Venom: Dark Origin #1
Written by Zeb Wells and Illustrated by Angel Medina
Published by Marvel Comics

This wasn’t what I was expecting. I thought there was going to be Venom in it fighting Spider-Man or eating people or something. It would have been better if Venom was in it doing stuff but it wasn’t a bad book.

I like how they made Eddie bad even as a little kid and a teenager. He was lying all the time. It was kind of funny but also bad that he lied about everything. I can’t believe he stole that cat. I’d be mad if someone did that to my cats. I’m glad that the cat scratched him up for that.

It was funny when Eddie pretended to be a wrestler and lied about that and then the real wrestlers got mad and smashed him into the lockers. He was always lying about stuff and then saying that he did things that he didn’t do.

I can’t believe that he told the gang of bad guys to just take the girl he liked. First he liked her and then he didn’t. He was a big chicken to just tell the bad guys to take her and not beat him up. And then Spider-Man beats up the bad guys and Eddie says that he did that, too. Always lying!

The art was good. I really like how the black eye looked on Eddie after he got beat up. The artist drew a very real looking black eye. Some parts of the book looked a little weird like when Eddie was smiling. He looked weird when he did those big smiles like the Joker but other parts looked good.

It would have been a lot better to see Venom doing stuff, but I still thought it was good to show how bad Venom was when he was a kid. I never knew what he was like before he turned into Venom.

My Rating: 7 out of 10

Sometimes the covers of comics don't match the story inside. This sounds like one of those issues. Good to know.
