22 page Venom; Carnage story "A Child Is Born Part One: Baby Please Don't Go!"

Characters Black Cat (Felicia Hardy); Spider-Man (Peter Parker)
Synopsis Venom pursues Carnage across the Manhattan skyline. Venom is not playing the role of hero, though. He cares little about Carnage's psychotic bloodlust. It turns out that the Carnage symbiote is ready to reproduce asexually, and as Carnage's not-so proud papa, it's up to Venom to ensure that the new creature develops properly... especially since Carnage wants to slaughter the baby blob once it's born. The slimy family feud crashes into the home of a New York City cop and his pregnant wife, which spells disaster for the couple. Fortunately, a certain friendly neighborhood wall-crawler happens upon the scene.
