We all know venom as one of the most recognizable symbiote and archnemesis of Spider-Man but, in 1993, Marvel made a limited series where Venom is an antihero.
In this series Venom and Spider-Man have a truce and Venom decides to move to San Fransisco. There he discovers an underground city of people. Now Eddie Brock/Venom has to deal with a city that sees him as a hero and a monster at the same time. In the course of the series the Venom symbiote is used to create a team of symbiotes.
Another limited series was Venom: The enemy within, which only consisted of 3 issues.
It is Halloween night, in San Francisco, in this series and thousands of goblins have taken to the streets, now venom has to find out who the real leader of the goblins is. As you can see Venom is still aware of the history him and Spider-Man share. The coolest part of this comic, I think, is the cover:
Glow in the dark! These are only two of about 7 limited series of the good side to Venom. Definitely worth a read!

I remember those limited series. It was like Marvel was scared to just give Venom his own on-going series, so they kept pumping out limited series after limited series.
Indeed. I remember reading about this online and then bringing it up to my boss because he loves Venom. He told me he knew about it and that he owned a few of the issues and would then to me if I wanted. Of course I said yes and it was actually pretty good. I like him as a good guy just as much as I like him as a bad guy.
@MajahnNelson He was my favorite villain and I got these at a flea market a few years ago, not certain of what to expect and I was surprised at how much I liked him as a hero.
