I’ll level with you: While Venom did make an intergalactic army of human babies, seeding “countless worlds with billions of new human( oid) hosts recreated from its hereditary codex,” “Living-Planet Venoms” that brimmed “with reconstituted biolife born into Venomized symbiosis” in “the period of Venom the Meatgardener”– Venom didn’t do all that in the main Marvel Comics universe.
Some of them, like Miles Morales: The End, only endeavor into the next couple of decades of time. Venom: The End shows us the end of everybody’s preferred goo monster on a trillion-year scale, when the symbiote ends up being the last creature in the universe and decides to wage war on the singularity of maker minds set on devouring all matter.
Venom: The End is high-concept, deeply weird, and extremely amusing, in spite of how complicated and dense its storytelling is.
What else is taking place in the pages of our preferred comics? We’ll inform you. Welcome to Polygon’s weekly list of the books that our comics editor enjoyed this previous week. It’s part society pages of superhero lives, part reading recommendations, part “look at this cool art.” There might be some spoilers. There may not be enough context. Let’s start!
There’s a part in Venom: Completion where Venom utilizes mutant genomes to open the secret of time travel and releases Jamie Madrox’s increasing powers to return in time and combine with every being who has actually ever lived. Look how proud he is of this achievement.
The Batman’s Grave # 4
Ellis and Drawback are offering some really top-notch Alfred characterization in The Batman’s Tomb, but let it not be stated that they aren’t delivering in other methods as well. This previous concern was almost all a single fight scene, and the 2 kept it absolutely comprehensible and interesting all the way through with hardly any dialogue.
Dragon Age: Blue Wraith # 1
As noted Dragon Age Garbage myself, I believed you might like to understand that there’s a new Dragon Age comic miniseries, and ya boy Fenris is in it, and he has a new haircut.
The Red Mom # 2
The Red Mom is a Boom Studios series about a female who begins wearing a glass eye after a terrible mishap and starts to see strange visions through it. Like this beast who, I, a giant wimp, absolutely hate
Legion of Super-Heroes # 3
It took me a few problems to figure out the tone of Legion of Super-Heroes, however with # 3, I think I’ve got it: It’s a bunch of teens from the future who heard about superheroes and are attempting to bring the entire thing back. The problem, obviously, is that they’re teenagers, and therefore definitely useless.
Steeple # 5
I will stop putting Steeple in the roundup when it stops providing me a minimum of one good guffaw per concern.
