The first of Titan's new series of original Marvel novels, starring Spider-Man's arch foe Venom in his anti-hero role as the Lethal Protector.
WHEN EDDIE BROCK BECOMES BIOLOGICALLY LINKED TO A BIZARRE ALIEN SYMBIOTE, THE TWO SHARE A COMMON GOAL.
At first they seek to squash their arch-foe Spider-Man. After repeated attempts, Venom reaches an uneasy truce with the web-spinner. Brock leaves New York and heads west to San Francisco, the city of his birth, eager to put trouble behind him.
Trouble has different ideas.
Brock commits himself to becoming a defender of the innocent, but he's a six-foot-three-inch, 260 lb. figure with bulging muscles and fangs like a shark. Venom quickly draws attention--first from a furious Spider-Man, who's certain Brock has broken his word, then from a team of armored enemies who set out to kill the "Lethal Protector."
Venom joins forces with the web-spinner, only to face an even deadlier threat--five trained killers, each wearing a symbiotic suit like Brock's.
These are the Spawn of Venom, and they're out for blood.
