Spider-Man & Venom: Double Trouble #1 (Review)

Spider-Man and Venom are roommates and that’s only part of the craziness.

While Spider-Man swings through the city helping others and being your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, Venom is doing the exact opposite. After a run-in with Green Goblin, Venom decides to head home as Spidey is making dinner.

After showing the wall-crawler what a horrible roommate he can be, Ghost Spider enlists Spider-Man to help her with another problem caused by Venom and some unorthodox experiments he seems to be running out of his room.

With a light heart and low stakes, Mariko Tamaki is telling a story that is unique. The light tone of it is perfect for younger readers or anyone looking for a Spider-Man tale that incorporates elements of anime and manga in style and pacing. The story is simple enough to dive in and that is probably its best virtue. A lot of the humor fell flat but it is a workable attempt at a light, Odd Couple type of story.
