“Quitting so soon?” – Venom
When a character is a big hit, they usually bring him/her back sometime later. Or as the cover puts it, “Venom is back!”
Venom has run away from the Vault, a high-security prison for super-powered individuals in Colorado, and has prepared his way to New York intent on take Spider-Man life for his offense. And so, the hardcore fighting pace was established in June 1989. #316 is one of the greatest Spidey comics I’ve ever read, an example of how to bring a villain back and keep things fresh. And I don’t mind to put it on my chest.
