    Venom fans do not want to miss out on this one. It's a love letter to everything we remember about that most sinister of symbiotes. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Eric Wilson May 26, 2017

    This is everything I wanted in a return for the original Venom. It's spooky, psychologically introspective, and darkly comedic. The additional material also feel like warranted bonuses, rather than padding for a few extra dollars on the price tag. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 24, 2017

    Venom #150 is a significant step up from the series first six chapters. Tradd Moore's dynamic art style is a natural fit for this over-the-top villain, and the writing immediately benefits from having two solid protagonists rather than one. However, the series still has to prove the new status quo can do more than bank on nostalgia. Also annoying is that neither backup feature really justifies the increased cost of entry.

    The GCRN - Dan Clark May 26, 2017

    First and foremost it is compelling story built on the dramatic weight of the character. With that we get the purest form of celebration, a reminder of what has made this character work all these years while so many others have been quickly forgotten. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis May 24, 2017

    The first story is great. The other two are not nearly as good. If you're a 90's-era Venom fan, however, the whole issue is definitely worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray May 29, 2017

    An oversizedVenom #150 Issue Spectacular for $5.99 is filled with a throwback feel to howthe character used to operate which seems to be the way this series is progressing. This may be a development to upset long time followers of Venomthe last few years after some interesting forward progress for the symbioteitself as a character. The art from the middle story featuring Sandoval remainsmy favorite way Venom has been rendered plus you gotta love that classic cover style! Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Don Alsafi May 26, 2017

    All in all, an impressively compelling and sadly off-putting final product. That's a shame, but the lead story effectively does the job of giving readers the original Venom again, and in a far more interesting way than you'd expect. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho May 28, 2017

    Venom #150 is a step in the right direction, but it's not perfect. Mike Costa needs to build up the relationship between Eddie and the symbiote more. It almost seems like we're thrown in and things are already in place. The art needs to be a little darker for a title like this. It was light in certain spots and didn't fit. We're on our way to getting the Venom series we want, but we're not there yet. Read Full Review
