    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jul 22, 2020

    Another excellent FCBD story, it fills in the blanks between Venom #25 & #26, but most importantly it introduces readers to Virus. Fans of Donny Cates run will lap this up, Ryan Stegmans art is incredible as always, and released as a free comic it's a no brainer. Pick this up at your LCS today. Read Full Review

    Through some excellent framings of the fight between Venom and their new opponent, Virus, we're treated to some unique perspectives and a compact scrap that highlights Venom's longevity and resolve as one of the character's most appreciable qualities. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Jul 22, 2020

    An enjoyable Spider-Man and Black Cat romp, and a Venom tale to remind us of what's to come, for the price of nothing. The Venom story might not be as essential due to Venom #26 being released before this, but the Spidey story handles itself as its own self-contained story. Even with the release of this being delayed, both stories are worth reading, and with “King in Black” being months away still, you can at least get your Ryan Stegman now while the long wait to Knull continues.

    Your enjoyment might vary based on your expectations and how much Marvel you read though and I suspect readers new to MacKay's great Black Cat or Cates/Stegman's edgy and horrific Venom will be bowled over. Read Full Review
