Episode 23: The Amazing Spider-Man 374 & 375

These two issues see the return of one of Spidey’s most iconic villains and sets the stage for some much of the Venom-ness that would permeate the rest of the 90s. For these two issues, I knew I couldn’t do it alone. So I brought in the only man for the job, a man who had a letter printed in a Spider-Man comic about how amazing Venom was: Siskoid. So let’s see how the symbiotic villain fares this time around, now that he’s not being saddled alongside Carnage.

One thought on “Episode 23: The Amazing Spider-Man 374 & 375

  1. Great episode as always! Siskoid did a yeoman’s job providing context and substance for the Spider-Man-Venom relationship, and actually made me re-evaluate what Venom means to the world of Spider-Man (although Furn gets the assist, based on the Lonely Hearts episode you guys referred to).

    I haven’t read these issue, but it’s nice seeing Mark Bagley’s art in the scan you provided. I can definitely see the artist the would go on to define Ultimate Spider-Man for over one-hundred issues a decade after these stories.
