    A Chip Zdarsky Spider-man What if he never took off the symbiote mini series. Venom 200 being Donny Cates Stegman run(athough Donny said he has plans for long game so I assume they mean't collab between Cates/Stegman)

    hmm.. this would be at least the second 'what if' involving the "Peter didn't get rid of it" narrative. There was an issue of the 1989-started What-If series that dealt with it.

    I suppose this one deals with the events of King in Black if that's the case.

    I like the idea of a What If? mini-series. "Life Story" shows that Zdarsky can do that type of stuff very well with Spider-Man.

    I guess it's nice to see Zdarsky writing Spider-Man again but the story kind of feels "been there, done that."

    I liked how Life Story started, but as it went on, it was almost like the writing was using some kind of wheel of misfortune for Spidey. Like a bunch of negative shit went on this wheel, and when Zdarsky needed the next plot point, he spun the wheel and put Pete through the wringer. I wasn’t a big fan of it.

    Oh, I liked it quite a lot; it may be one of my favorite Spidey tales of the past 20 years.

    It was handled quite realistically IMO and I found any misfortune introduced was in keeping in with the Spidey mythos; I can't name many classic Spidey story arcs that don't have a healthy dose of misfortune, great challenge or even tragedy.

    Wow, this really says why writers like to torture Spider-Man.

    You're not wrong, but that doesn't really make it good writing.

    Sadly Donny Cates has confirmed that he is done with Venom forever, or at least for a long while. A big, big disappointment to say the least. This was probably Venom's best moment, and I sincerely hope the next creative team continues to ride with this momentum.

    I’ll believe it when I genuinely see it.
    I feel like it might come back under a different name/new Venom status quo.

    It’s been teased frequently in Donnys run that we will learn the symbiotes true name, so I’m on the fence if that will be where it goes next.

    If it does end there, then hats off to the creative team for telling the story they came to tell.

    I'm expecting Cates to continue his story elsewhere.
    In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Venom continues with a new host while whatever title Cates moves to will continue Eddie's story.
    I've seen once that this is the end of the story, but that could be just speculation or the story of Venom.
    I've mostly seen that this is the last issue they will do on Venom, which is fairly vague.
