    As far as crossovers go this one is awesome, and not too extensive or intimidating. I like it when crossovers are somewhat contained and don't force readers to buy a bunch of books they wouldn't otherwise lest they are crucial tie-ins (I'm looking at you, Deadpool Secret Empire tie-in issues!) All in all I would recommend this book to others. Read Full Review

    Venom #159 doesn't bring anything new to the table. Its more of a filler issue to me, like its setting up for the next part of the story. It was nice to see Anti-Venom back in action. I am disappointed that Maniac didn't do much either, all he did was bark orders. For crying out loud, Lee Price was the guy who broke the Venom Symbiotes will and forced it into submission. At least have him throw down with Spidey or Black Cat. I did love the art style for the issue, the sharp edges in use fit a Venom comic. Read Full Review

    Overall, Venom #159 does bring a fair amount of fun to the otherwise grindy story of Venom Inc. Theres a lot of punching, Spider-Man isnt insufferable here, and Sandoval and Curiel keep things aesthetically appealing. I can recommend it to the fans of this story and its characters or anyone just looking for a fairly fun and mindless read. Its worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Venom #159 is a fun read for hard core Venom fans, but doesn't have much else to offer past that, not even for Spidey fans. Read Full Review

    I'm still going to read this story arc, but dammit was this entire issue a waste of time. Read Full Review
