Whoa, Carnage is so Maximum it’s taking us two episodes to get through it. Spider-Man seems to be having a tough time getting through Maximum Carnage as well, because in parts 8-14 he really just can’t deal anymore.
All Star Superman also rolls on with issue 8. Booooooo!!!!! (Don’t worry, that’s a Bizarro Boo.)
Next Time: The New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract (Tales of the Teen Titans #42-44, Annual #3)
Can you believe this is the 25th anniversary of the Maximum Carnage video game? A classic that has such accolades as being A Game and being Based On A Comic Book. At least we know it was a memorable comic book 14-parter that ran through the Spider-Man comics of 1993.
Actually, was it memorable? We know Carnage goes Maximum, but… what else? Let’s start finding out with parts 1-7.
We also don’t continue No Moon Superman with issue #7.
Next Time: Spider-Man/Venom: Maximum Carnage #8-14
You want teeth? Venom’s got teeth!
As his first movie approaches release, we thought we’d read his first titular miniseries, Venom: Lethal Protector from 1993.
Venom travels through time*, fights five different versions of his own symbiote spawn, and deals with three different dudes in suits.
And we’ve got a special no-prize going out to the first listener to count all the teeth in these issues!
PLUS! We read the penultimate issue of Crisis on Infinite Earths…and it’s good?
Next Time: We wrap up Crisis on Infinite Earths with issue #12 and start our next long reading project, Secret Wars (1984) #1!
*Venom does not travel through time.
Spider-Man villains sure do love teasing their arrival before their full first appearances. “Dudes in Shadows” we like to call them.
This time around it’s Venom in Amazing Spider-Man #298-300. Join us as Peter tries to deal with his evil former costume while juggling his romantic troubles.
Specifically how his supermodel wife makes more money than him and wants a bigger apartment. And we feel so, sooooooo sorry for Peter. Really.
Next Time: Prez (1973) – The story of America’s first teenage president!
