Marvel Age #12 (black costume preview)
Peter Parker, Spectacular Spider-Man #90 pre-dates Secret Wars #8. (Spider-Man is wearing a black costume)
I have both of those books...
Me personally, i don't consider the costume Venom, but the costume + Eddie Brock = Venom
But, i'm aware that the costume is considered "Venom."
All these people "Venom" has attached to since Eddie Brock don't mean squat to me, personally...
