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.

When Batman is dead, who gets to take over Detective Comics? Batwoman!

With issue 854, Kate Kane became the star of the title and creators Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III made sure she stepped up to the plate.

It’s not often that we get to talk about werewolves and lesbian tuxedo meet-cutes in the same episode, but here we are. Join us for Batwoman: Elegy.

Also, we near the homestretch of Crisis on Infinite Earths with issue 10, as our characters abandon the issue's plot halfway through to do something way more interesting. And Wildcat once again is nowhere to be seen.

Next Time: Venom: Lethal Protector!
