    Venom is on track with Mike Costa, Bagley, and Almara. #156 was a fun and absorbing issue through and through, and it earns its recommendation with aplomb. Read this one. Its a great ride. Read Full Review

    Not sure why some bad reviews, I thought this book was really good. Really looking forward to the next issue. Bagley is the perfect artist for this series. The colors are great too. The story is not overly intricate, it's just been a fun read. Dinosaur people!

    Lethal protectoring for his dino-CHUD friends puts Venom on a collision course with Kraven. If you can set aside your Venom superfan ire (OMG knives and guns hurting Mah Venom is teh bull☠☠☠☠!), this is a pretty nice story. Mark Bagley's strong fight art is a big positive, as is the way Mike Costa's script calls back to a lot of previously-established points about Venom's current status quo.

    I also have to give Mr. Costa credit for restraint: He *totally sets up* the Silver Age silly name "Tana the Pteranodon" and then manages not to use it.
