    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Dec 29, 2019

    With an interesting take on the Lethal Protector concept, Venom 2099 is an excellent book for someone looking for a different lead character, or for anyone looking for a fix for their Venom addiction. The open-ended conclusion feels like there should be more, and we can only hope Marvel continues Alea Bells adventures as the new host of Venom. Read Full Review

    The other thing that makes this issue memorable is the excellent art from Francesco Mobili and Geraldo Borges. They bring some beautiful visuals to this issue and there are some brutal, but beautifully framed panels spread throughout this story. The flashbacks are particularly well-drawn and the character looks fantastic. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 3, 2019

    I enjoyed this 2099 story and while I'm a sucker for Elseworlds tales, it's nice to know this is bonafide in-canon storytelling. The cliffhanger twist near the end is proof of that. Pick this one up for a slightly different Venom story that may just have you begging for more. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Forrest C. Helvie Dec 5, 2019

    While there isn't much to make this book feel definitively like the electric Marvel 2099 books from years past, Houser cooks up an interesting sci-fi horror angle for reintroducing Venom to the Marvel Universe as a dissected symbiote used to cure all illnesses. Read Full Review

    Overall it's a fine piece, but nothing about it screams 2099 like one would expect. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Dec 4, 2019

    This new take on Venom, 2099 or otherwise, was pretty lackluster. I really wish they found a way to simply keep and revamp the original Venom 2099. There was more material to work with, having the original Venom 2099/Kron Stone being the son of Alchemax's CEO and half-brother of Spider-Man 2099. This new Alea/Venom has nothing interesting about her, and I'm left wondering by the end of the book why she even wants to go forward with being the new Venom" Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Dec 4, 2019

    Venom 2099 #1 is a pretty by the numbers story. It's good, but only so basic that it doesn't do anything strong enough to make me tell you that you have to go buy it. The art is solid throughout, but without any truly mind-blowing pages, I would recommend you check this out on Marvel Unlimited than pay full price for it. Read Full Review
