I read a compilation of previously produced titles from the beginning of the venom character to the end (or is it?

I'd say 80% of this collection deals with the alien costume (or symbiote) while its host was Spider-Man. Despite being a big Marvel fan, this was the first time that I read about the earlier stories involving Spider-Man and Venom.

If Eddie Brock worked in journalism nowadays, he'd be lauded by the likes of CNN for pushing fake news! I understand this book has multiple books in it so they are separate issues telling a story that comes together but hearing things being explained to you multiple times to the point where it gets repetitive such as the spider senses and the costume feeling weird and then the costume doing something weird that is pretty much the whole story summed up. Its not particularly well written at times, but the way this collection is put together keeps this story coherent at least. The fight continues onto a stadium where Spidey uses the sounds from the speakers to take Carnage down. Venom is an interesting character starting out as a newly designed spiderman costume and becoming a sentient being.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. He tells Peter that he didn't attack because he didn't want to hurt innocent people and told him to meet him at the Seacrest Estate in Manruk. Seeing that he can't take down Carnage alone, he goes with the Human Torch to the island Venom is at to ask for his help. Using sonic weapons they were able to temporarily disable Venom and inform him that his "son" is killing innocents. cannot see much ambivalence as it seems mostly that at least for spidey, motivations of villains are darker and resolutions are somewhat bittersweet.

when my brother and me were old enough to read word books our mother, school librarian, would let us read no more graphic of any sort. Reading this series of comics (there are 6 or 7 comprised in this graphic novel) was pretty nostalgic. I can see how, back in the day, reading individual comic issues gave readers a greater appreciation for these kinds of surprises, but when it gets bunched into one big collection, the effect is lost.The first 200 pages can be summed up as Spider-Man costume feeling weird when he wears it or Spider-Man's costume doing something weird when he does not wear it. 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). Later Spider-Man decides to have his suit checked out by Reed Richards, and right as they're studying the symbiote, we cut to the Hobgoblin, who takes out a bunch of the Rose's men to prove he's the Hobgoblin.

I was surprised how both amusing and threatening was as I expected that before his introduction he was just some rando, unlike a character with some built-up development like Eddie from Spider-Man TAS.The Birth of Venom is not a fully cohesive story than it is charting the first appearances of the character and for a dork into the Marvel cast it's a good intro and importantly shows that the tongue was a later addition the creators originally wanted to emphasize the smile and sheer bulk of Venom than the gross out cannibalism that showed up later.
