As someone who has spent far too much time around comics on sale, I often see this one labeled as ‘the 1st appearance of super-popular future movie star, Venom!’ In a way, that’s true, but there’s perhaps a little context one needs to know… Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of Marvel Super-Heroes Secret Wars #8 awaits!

We know Doom is God and ruler of Battleworld and Stephen Strange is dead by his hand. But how did Doom become God and what happened to Owen Reece aka Molecule Man? Answered are revealed and Major Spoilers has your review of Secret Wars #5.
Give Secret Wars a grand sendoff as some of the hottest names in the comics industry bid adieu to Battleworld later this year!
This week I brought home the last hardcover of Grant Morrison’s Zenith series, which I’ve discussed in this column and reviewed before. I was elated!
