    Kev Walker is my favorite artist to handle this series since Tony Moore. In a perfect world, Tony Moore would draw every single issue, but if we can't have that let's at least have Walker on board. He draws the hell out of this thing. His Hobgoblin looks beautifully sinister. The only area he lacks is in his backgrounds. It's hard to tell where the action is moving at times. Things move fast in this issue, and the set pieces aren't pivotal, but there are points where you can't tell if Venom just punched the wall or the floor. Read Full Review

    A good looking action shot featuring Agent Venom taking on The Fly and The Hobgoblin at once. It does kind of spoil the surprise that the Hobgoblin cameos in the book, but at least we get a sweet looking cover out of it. Read Full Review

    Overall, we get a solid single issue story that ends on a downer… but a good downer. A downer that makes you want more because it's adding to the tortured nature of this troubled hero. If there's one thing we've learned through Remender's writing on this series it's that in the end nothing ever really ends nicely for Flash. Read Full Review

    Venom #16 is a fun comic, and perhaps even more importantly, a fun comic that doesn't try to put on airs or try to apologize for its escapist tendencies. What it does do is it puts a nice artistic spin on an existing book, and it juggles three characters extremely well for a self-contained chapter. It doesn't always have to be deeper than this. Sometimes a pipe is just a pipe; sometimes a fight comic is just a fight comic. Read Full Review
