    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 6, 2018

    Venom #164 brings the title back on track after the crossover stories, bringing us an interesting mystery story that leads to a shocking revelation. Bagley, Hanna, and Sanchez-Almara, bring excellent work to the artistic side of things, complimenting Costas character-focused narrative. This one gets a strong recommendation. Give it a read.

    Comic Watch - John Jack Apr 10, 2018

    A good to great issue, the Shocker fight alone makes it worth your time, everything else is just a bonus. Totally recommend it if you like the character at all, maybe less so if you aren't already semi-interested, hard to recommend the last couple issues before a renumber. (Just ask me, proud owner of Batman issues 620-713, last 20 are basically pointless thanks to the new 52) Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Apr 4, 2018

    In the rare quiet interludes between crossover shenanigans, Mike Costa has crafted a fascinating take on the Eddie/Venom relationship. He's turned the symbiote into a separate character, one with its own agenda and secrets it keeps from its host. What happens when those secrets are laid bare to Eddie Brock? Venom #164 delivers a blockbuster of a revelation, and there are doubtless more surprises ahead. Unless you absolutely cannot stand introspective, character-driven Venom, you'll find this new evolution enthralling. Read Full Review

    Venom is beginning to feel like a skipping record. Each issue plays out pretty similarly to the last. Read Full Review
