As I said yesterday, going to be a long day and unless I got my writing done early, probably wouldn’t get much done. Well, I didn’t get much done. Just shy of 500 words and I’m falling asleep at the keyboard. Tomorrow will be a better day.
That said, had a great time at the movies with three of my nephews. We went to see Venom.
Let me start by saying I’m a big Spider-Man fan. I collected comics for years. I’d read the Secret Wars series when it first came out and loved the black costume. I started collecting again shortly before issue 300 came out (the first appearance of Venom). I had my copy autographed by McFarlane before he went off to create Spawn (which I also collected). So needless to say, I have a bit of history with Venom before and after McFarlane.
That said, I was nervous going into Venom knowing that Sony owned the rights. They’ve done awful things with the Spider-Man franchise. They should have kept going forward but kept going back to the start. It was frustrating.
Well, I think they had some help with this movie. If you’re a fan of Venom, you’ll not many timeline differences. But hey, this is a movie and only partially related to the comics. I get that. So I enjoyed it for what it was. A new series with new characters.
There was no Spider-Man in the movie. This is totally dedicated to Venom and unrelated to the anything Spider-Man (for now I’m assuming). They also set it up nicely for the sequel and holy wow! If you go see it, hang around for the mid-credit scene. I’m eager to see the next in this series.
Anyway, I’m off to bed. Another busy weekend.
Until Next Time!
