With Sony announcing they are going to release a Venom movie, the First Appearance of Venom is going through the roof. Here are the key issues to look out for.
The very first person to be known as Venom was Eddie Brock. His 1st appearance was Amazing Spider-Man 298 which also happens to be Todd McFarlane's first time working on Amazing Spider-man. This book is a sleeper that can still be purchased for a decent price. Imagine what having Todd McFarlane signature and CGC graded would do to it's value.
