Venom Reading Order

By popular demand, a complete Venom reading order, from his origins to Maximum Carnage, to Venom’s current role with the Guardians of the Galaxy! Get to know Spider-Man’s most venomous villain!

I) The Birth of Venom

A few notes about this section. There is some overlap in the available trade collections for the issues of Spider-Man in which Venom first appears. For example, “The Birth of Venom” includes the first Amazing Spider-Man issues in which Spidey and Venom battle, but it also includes backstory for the black suit all the way to its origins in Secret Wars. Of course if you’re reading on Marvel Unlimited, this won’t be an issue.

Additionally, “Venom: Dark Origin” is the only series on here published during the 2000’s. Although it was published much later, the story deals with the origins of Venom, and can be read closer to his original appearances in Spider-Man.

II) Venom Begats Maximum Carnage

Venom reading order will not quite double as a complete Carnage reading order, but because Venom and Carnage are so closely related, you will find plenty of Carnage included here, notably Maximum Carnage.

Spider-Man: Maximum Carnage

Amazing Spider-Man #378-380, Spectacular Spider-Man #201-203, Spider-Man #35-37, Spider-Man Unlimited #1 And #2, And Web Of Spider-Man #101-103

III) A Venom for the 21st Century

Not necessarily the beast Venom stories on our list, but the Marvel Knights Spider-Man from Mark Millar in particular has a big influence on the status quo of Venom. The individual inside the symbiote will feel a bit confusing if you skip over this section!

Spider-Man: Venom vs. Carnage

Civil War

I’ll be clear that Civil War is in no way a Venom story, but it does include the sinister symbiote and sets up his status during the following section. You’ll want a passing familiarity with the core Civil War story.

IV) Venom and the Thunderbolts

Some of the most interesting Venom stories stem from his unexpected time as one of the “heroic” Thunderbolts. Following the events of Secret Invasion, this leads to an even more intriguing period of Venom as a part of the Dark Avengers.

  1. I’m trying to get into this series using this guide. I have Birth of Venom. From your trade break down it seems that that trade has the same issues that are in Spiderman vs Venom. Is that correct so I would be able to skip that trade? Thanks.

  2. While I do see Lethal Protector is present is there a reason why a lot of the Venom mini-series occuring throughout the 90’s isn’t included? Stuff like The Enemy Within, The Mace, Along Came A Spider, etc. seems to be missing. Are these just considered non-canon or are they in one of the collected editions listed here and I’m just missing it?

  3. Hi there, just a quick bit if you have the time, I was running through your list and it’s extremely helpful to me and my collection! I was noticing a few bits that you could add in if you ever cared to.

    Venom: Deathtrap – The Vault (1993) (one shot issue that’s occurs before lethal protector)
    Venom: Funeral Pyre (1993) (after lethal protector)
    Venom: The Madness (1993–1994)
    Venom: Enemy Within (1994)
    Venom: The Mace (1994)
    Venom: Nights of Vengeance (1994)

    Venom: Sinner Takes All (1995) (after maximum carnage)
    Venom: Along Came A Spider (1996) (Introduction of the Hybrid symbiote)
    Venom: The Hunger (1996)
    Venom: Tooth and Claw (1996-1997)
    Venom: On Trial (1997)
    Venom: License to Kill (1997)
    Venom: Sign of the Boss (1997)
    Venom: The Finale (1997–1998)

    Venom – Ultimate Collection (2003-2004, collects the Venom 2003 series)

    I hope this is helpful and not irritating, either way thanks for your time and all your awesome work here!

  4. Also web of spider-man 1, 18 and 24 after ff 274 but before ASM 298-300 correct?
    Chronologically, under “Birth of Venom” shouldn’t it go:
    Secret wars 8
    ASM 259-259
    FF 274
    WOS 1, 18, 24
    ASM 298-300
    ASM 315-317
    (WOS 18 eddie brock/venom pushes peter onto train tracks, 24 grabs Peter’s leg from a window and causes him to fall…)

      -Pat

      ps please excuse the /2 or /3 thats just second story in issue etc, also FB just means that it’s a flashback issue.

  6. Hi Taylor,
    I too have been making a list (kinda important to me too lol). Basically what I have so far is every venom appearance in story line order (flashback sput before type stuff). So far i’m up through Venom Vol2 then not quite sure after that. It’s kinda long but here’s what I have in storyline order. Prepare yourself, it’s a long list… any additional help is apprecciated, as I’m still working on the list.
    Thanks,
    -Pat

  7. Thanks a ton, Patrick
    I’ll be sorting through your order for a while

    I’m pretty positive with what I have for Flash Thompson but there are probably a bunch I’m missing. He’s also not in all those Guardians of the Galaxy issues, he leaves in the middle of one of the volumes to do Space Knight. I don’t know which volume though cause I haven’t read them yet but I’m pretty sure it’s volume 3.
