    Cullen Bunn and company finish off the current volume of Venom in great fashion. Sad to see this title go. Read Full Review

    This may be the end, though sadly it's time has come. Hopefully if this story continues in a different capacity Mania is the main character, but after what Mephisto let them with, there's still reason for this story to be given another chance. With a better artist definitely, that much I'm sorry to say but George Coelho hasn't done much good for this book since coming in on art. Read Full Review

    Venom #42 doesn't end things perfectly but for the most part devoted followers will be pleased. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, the final issue of VENOM comes off as feeling like the start of something promising instead of the end of something epic. Sure, the series technically ends on a bang instead of a whimper, but that's due to a ginormous action sequence and not progress with the plot. If Marvel actually has something underway for Andi and Venom in another series, then it'll be great to see how they run with this ending. But, seeing as there's nothing like that currently revealed to the public, I can't help but be slightly disappointed with this final issue. It's certainly entertaining and there's a nice focus on who Flash was and who he wants to be, but overall, it doesn't quite feel like a satisfying finale. Read Full Review
