The Big Batman Read: Batman – Venom (in 100 words)

6. Batman: Venom (1991) – Story by Dennis O’Neil, Art by Trevor Von Eeden and Russell Braun

In this awesome comic Batman gets addicted to super steroids and kicks a shark in the face.

This was actually one of the first Batman comic books I ever read, way back when I was in junior school. It has no gangsters or super-villains, just a mad, drug peddling scientist and a disgraced military man trying to make a super army.  The book has an anti-drug theme but manages to pull it off, creating something that feels like a Batman story and not a PSA. It also stands as a prequel to Knightfall with references to Santa Prisca and Venom.
