    The second chapter of Venom Inc. isn't quite as as strong as the first. Lee Price and his symbiotic minions aren't exactly the most compelling threat Spider-man has ever faced. But this crossover continues to thrive in two key areas. The characterization frequently shines as Slott explores the constantly evolving relationship between Peter and Flash. And Stegman's gritty, powerful art recalls the best aspects of the early '90s Spider-Man books. Read Full Review

    This takes place seconds after the last issue and really pushed the story along, a fantastic back and forth with Peter and Flash Thompson. Read Full Review

    A good second chapter that succeeds at giving Spidey and Flash some good bro-time. Read Full Review

    Brock, Flash and Lee Price are all fighting over who gets the Venom symbiote and Peter is caught in the middle out of guilt and responsibility. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 13, 2017

    There's nothing bad here, there's also just nothing that has me super excited to where things are going. We've seen this before in some ways and none of it feels new enough to really get me wanting to see where it all goes. This is entertaining yet forgettable and feels like it'll be going down as a rather mediocre Spider-Man story when it wraps up. Read Full Review

    I've used the word "solid" a lot in this review, but I think that's really the word that describes Amazing Spider-Man #792 the most " out of all the crazy, heartfelt, character-driven storylines that Dan Slott has been involved with, I'm not sure if Venom, Inc. is ever truly going to match up, but its crowded roster is handled with enough dexterity and such thrilling artwork that you can't write it off as any sort of failure.

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Dec 18, 2017

    The story just seems like a good guys hunt down and beat up the bad guys eventually sort of tale with a variety of Venom type symbiotes as the villains currently. I think so many Venom focused stories the last six months have really taken the shine off an already average crossover. The art deserves a second glance though. Read Full Review

    Though "Venom Inc." has all the makings of a decently entertaining Spider-Man/Venom team up, Amazing Spider-Man #792 makes putting all those makings together a bit of a chore. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ryoga Kazehino Dec 20, 2017

    Despite being an ASM comic and part of the Venom Inc. crossover, Spider-Man continues to play sidekick to Venom and Anti-Venom rather than an actual team-up. While the issue tries to illustrate there's a lot happening, in reality, there is very little progress in the narrative. Still, Venom Inc. has four parts left, and hopefully, part 3, which will appear in Venom #159, will bring in much-needed action. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mark Ginocchio Dec 13, 2017

    Amazing Spider-Man #792 and "Venom Inc." have put the simpler, more character-centric storytelling from "The Fall of Parker" in its rearview mirror, and that's not really a good thing. The issue's sloppy storytelling and art that plays it too safe has knocked a book that had been on a steady upswing, back down a few pegs. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 14, 2017

    However, Venom Inc. has already turned out to be pretty awful, and this is only issue two of the story. I almost dread the next issue of Venom, but heres hoping Mike Costa can pull something together here. While I may still ride this one out for review purposes (and for a bit of masochism), avoid this Amazing Spider-Man #792. Its a grating experience with very little redeeming value. I do not recommend it in the slightest. Read Full Review
