Coming this March, in honor of Venom’s 30th Anniversary, the next round of “True Believers” titles are going to be focused on the popular Anti-hero, Super-Villain, Deadliest Foe of the Amazing Spider-Man and whatever other title you choose to give him. Venom is one of the most unforgettable faces in the Marvel Universe and I am really excited about this next go-round.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I know that I have already lauded the awesomeness that is the “True Believers” re-issues program that Marvel Comics does. In a nutshell, the idea of releasing a number of titles several times a year for only one dollar apiece is fantastic. It lets you snag a whole bunch of reading copies for your collection or even better, grab a pile of titles and give them to the younger reader in your world in hopes of inspiring them to collect as well. With the latest go round featuring the menacing Venom all I can say is sign me up. I’ll be asking my comic book retailer to set aside a few copies for me so I have the reading and saving copy along with one or two to gift to some lucky recipient. Venom has been a favorite character of mine for many years and I can hardly believe its been thirty years since we all first encountered the insidious symbiote and its human host Eddie Brock. He’s going to star in his own Sony Pictures film this year and while we didn’t get too much in the teaser trailer that we shared HERE, I remain interested in seeing how this plays out. Remember that this film is not a part of the proper Marvel Cinematic Universe and is instead Sony’s own side thing. What do you readers think about these Venom-ous additions to your comic book collection? Will you be purchasing them? Let me know down in the comments section below. With this whole set costing you a whopping $10 it’s a high recommendation from me to you. That’s cheaper than lunch in most metropolitan cities.
