    Venom Inc. was never the deepest Spider-Man crossover, and that certainly doesn't change in its final chapter. But if driven almost entirely by spectacle, this issue is worth the price of admission solely to gaze at the dynamic visuals of Ryan Stegman. Between that and the occasional moments of strong characterization, this crossover manages to wrap up on solid footing. Read Full Review

    Looking back on it, Venom Inc. probably could have been condensed to one mega-sized issue and I would have enjoyed it more for the expediency. That being said, Omega is a fun read. Its got action, its heroes have moments where they dont say dumb things, and the art holds together. In the end, I can recommend this one. Feel free to check it out. Read Full Review

    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: VENOM INC. #1 is a fun, action-packed issue full of humor that will certainly entertain readers, even if it suffers from one-dimensionality. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ryoga Kazehino Jan 19, 2018

    For a 6-part series that spans multiple books, I find Venom Inc. a disappointment, compared to other works writers Slott and Costa made. And for its title (and especially in this final part), it's Flash who is the real protagonist in this series and not Eddie. The series's only achievement is the changes to the characters and how they move forward in future stories. The series is worth looking at a glance, but not enough to dig deep. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mark Ginocchio Jan 17, 2018

    Venom Inc. Omega mercifully brings this storyline to an end. But despite its contrivances and absurdities, the comic at least suggests better days (and stories) are ahead for its main players. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Jan 22, 2018

    The Venom Inc story comes to a silly and strange conclusion. This whole thing came off more like a Saturday morning Disney XD Spider-Man cartoon than a story you'd find in the pages of a true Amazing Spider-Man book. Other than a glance at the art present throughout the series I don't recommend this crossover and the extra investment it involved. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Jan 17, 2018

    I think it's safe to say that for me, this crossover was a dud. We didn't get answer for most of our questions, and the ones we did didn't feel well thought out. This one is all style and very little substance, which is fine, but I know will leave many fans of Eddie and Flash disappointed. If you've come this far, check out the last issue, but if you're thinking of looking at the whole story, I wouldn't bother. Go read Rick Remender's Venom instead. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jan 18, 2018

    Venom Inc. involves a new symbiote host and his new mind control abilities, but Dan Slott and Mike Costa don't have any depth to add to the overall concept. Read Full Review

    Some good art and the sweet relief of this story ending will get you through it. Barely. Read Full Review
