    Venom #13 is a madcap romp, sadly a rare thing to find in comics, and probably the highest praise I could give to a book with a concept this goofy. This is not what I expected the Circle of Four to be about, but I'm not disappointed at all. I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    But all kidding aside, I'm looking forward to seeing Flash/Venom take a little break from the impending doom of his little cross-country tour. It's been pretty dark lately, and while a rip roaring punch 'em up through a corner of Hell might not exactly say light-hearted, at least it'll be fun, and I don't have to worry about Flash killing anyone that doesn't deserve it.

    This Venom crossover looks like it is going to be very entertaining as Remender throws a bunch of random characters together against a motely cast of villains where Hell on Earth is the potential outcome. It helps that the book is going to be a weekly affair and that each future installment is only $3 and that they use a wide range of creators. This book may not be on everyone's radar but after I read this issue I find myself totally onboard with this pseudo-crossover. Read Full Review

    Oh, did I forget to mention the laundry list of characters that appear who all add to the story? Read Full Review

    Four superheroes meet up in Las Vegas. You can imagine what kind of a mess this will be for the city. When heroes meet up either there is a misunderstanding and they fight or they immediately band together to take on the common foe. With four different heroes getting together, you get both. Rick Remender sets the stage for this six part story and, in a surprising fashion, makes these characters getting together work. Venom, Red Hulk, X-23 and the new Ghost Rider don't have anything in common but Remender easily pulls them together to fight a common threat. It's great to see Tony Moore's art again on Venom. There is plenty of action and surprises that makes this arc begin on the right foot. Seeing how it all plays together is going to be a blast. Read Full Review

    Overall, I think Venom #13 is a solid start to this "Circle of Four" mini-event. There might be some lackluster art scattered throughout, but that doesn't take away form the genuinely interesting story Remender has concocted to bring together Venom, Red Hulk, X-23 and Ghost Rider. This one should be interesting to see play out. Read Full Review

    The 'Circle of Four' event is shaping up to be something fun. Hopefully now with the business part dropped, the rest can step up to meet the creative conclusion this issue holds. These four characters meeting in Las Vegas and fighting a hellish battle against evil is going to be a bombastic caper, but don't expect any subtext or meta-anything to analyze. This is an excuse for superheroes with alien suits, rage powers, arm blades, and flaming skulls to do what they do best -- entertain you in silly and awesome ways. Enjoy, if that's what you are after. Read Full Review
