    While it is an underwhelming finale to the Lethal Protector arc, Venom #158 is still a fun comic to read. There is plenty of chaos and violence to keep the story exciting, and Bagley and Almaras art make for gorgeous visuals. This one still gets a recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Looking at Kraven The Hunter chase down dinosaurs in the sewers is one of the best examples of why we read comics in the first place. Venom is dumb fun that isn't afraid to be the comic that it is. To expect anything else would be foolish. Read Full Review

    After such a strong showing these past couple months, it's frustrating that "Lethal Protector" ends on such a bland note. This issue delivers neither a fitting homage to Amazing Spider-Man #33 nor a satisfying rematch between venom and Kraven. Instead, it wastes time setting the stage for the return of Lee Price. Mark Bagley's clean, confident art helps smooth over these problems to some extent, but not enough to save what could have been a memorable finale. Read Full Review

    The fight itself was pretty lame but everything around it was a good read. Shreik got her comeuppance! Maybe those wishy-washy cops should be fired too even though they did what reading fans probably hoped for. Nice cover and inside art.

    The end battle between Kraven and Venom was such a let down. The rest of the book was good though. Art, as always, has been great since Bagley took over.

    A less than satisfying conclusion to a pretty decent arc. I could've used another issue just to give things time to really sink in but instead everything's wrapped up quickly. Meanwhile, things need to be set up for the upcoming crossover and that takes up some much needed page space.
