Hello fellow Gothamites and welcome to the latest edition of the Batman Book Club! @AquamonC137 asked me to fill in for him for this one – something about having to isolate himself in a cave and purging himself of…something…I’m sure he’s fine.
Anyway, this week we’re going to continue (and possibly finish) our trek through the early days of the “Legends of the Dark Knight” title from the 90s with the very special storyline “Venom,” by Dennis O’Neil, Trevor Von Eeden, Russell Braun, and Jose Luis Garcia Lopez (and NOT Dan Abnett and Colin Macneil like the site lists them as, weird).
When a failed mission causes Batman to question his physical abilities, he’s introduced to a new chemical alternative. But once he swallows the drug, Batman finds himself on a dangerous path between who he is…and the monster he could become!
This edition of book club starts today, but in the DCU Book Club discord, we’ve been talking about reducing the number of days for each installment, so everyone can get their selections in a more timely matter. So in that sense, let’s say it starts from today, September 1st, to next Sunday, September 8th.
So let’s get reading, looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
