    The "Venom Annual" #1 Double Feature doubles down its bets that you want more Lady Hellbender! If more Lady Hellbender isn't what you're looking for in an Annnnnnnnual Venommmmm, then the art, by masters Di Meo and Ibez, is worth the price of admission alone. Read Full Review

    Venom fans might be a little disappointed with this considering Cady's story doesn't do anything exciting with Eddie and his partner, but readers looking for new characters to get excited about might be enticed by Lady Hellbender. Read Full Review

    Overall, I didn't like this issue. I came out the end of this book with zero inclination to ever read this again. The fanatic in me had issues with how Venom was written, how he looked, and overall what role the symbiote and Eddie played in this book. I'm not excusing the fact that its a "one-and-done" story because I've read better one-and-done Venom stories before (we just had a great one in the previous Venom #16). What a waste.

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Jul 31, 2019

    Venom Annual #1 isn't bad by any means, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone for $4.99. Sure, there's a whole other store in those 34 pages that I didn't even touch on, but it's not doing the book any favors. The main story is pretty run of the mill in more ways than one, and the art doesn't really wow me at any point. If you just have to pick this up, do it when it's on sale. Read Full Review

    The majority of the main story in this annual is focused on a space queen hitting on Eddie Brock because he's strong-willed. That's not a stretch and I don't really think you need to know anything else about this issue to pass on it. Read Full Review
