    It's too soon to tell, but Costa could be starting the best Venom run Marvel fans have ever seen. Read Full Review

    Venom #154 is easily one of the best issues of the comic Ive read. With action, characterization, and a killer artist, it looks and reads fantastically. Pick this one up off the stands. Its awesome. Read Full Review

    Paolo Siqueira's detailed, dynamic pages do a great job of bringing the symbiote's world and viewpoint to life while also bringing a more balanced, evenhanded look to a series that's often too stylized for its own good. Read Full Review

    We get a peek into the squishy black head of the Venom symbiote this month, and it provides a welcome return to form after the oddly disjointed "Land Before Crime". However, the art isn't well-suited to the story, and you can't help but feel a bit more could have been done with the book's central concept. Read Full Review

    The best issue in this series so far. It really impressed me. The art was way better than anything before it and the story was actually meaningful. If your looking for a time to start reading Venom it would be now. Each issue just gets better.

    While Eddie Brock dreams, his symbiote pal is thinking heavy thoughts about heroism and villainy. This is a wonderfully weird peek into Venom's head, and there are a lot of ideas to unpack. (Also probably a healthy heap of foreshadowing.) Paulo Siqueira's art makes it all look very glamorous, though he has his limitations when it comes to expressiveness for both Venom and human characters. Why is it that Mike Costa seems to be better at writing Venom the shorter his stories are? This one-shot is significantly more interesting than the whole three-issue arc we just finished. #154 just might be the start of something great - and it's thoughtful and entertaining enough on its own to make me hope that it is.
