    The Venom/Scorpion grudge match is off to a great start. Scorpion is a more threatening villain here than he's been in some time, and Lee Price is almost sympathetic for a change. Bring on round two. Read Full Review

    I'm still hoping that Lee meets a grisly and undignified end"just not with the symbiote. I'm not sure what it says about the series that a savage, id-controlled parasite is more interesting than the main human character, but I'll keep reading (and enjoying) the book if it continues its current upward swing.

    Perhaps it's just as well that Venom seems due for a major status quo upheaval so soon after its debut. The series simply isn't working in its present state, as the compelling portrayal of the symbiote itself is undercut by an aggressively boring main character. This issue also compounds the book's visual troubles by featuring two artists with wildly incompatible art styles. Read Full Review

    If you are looking forward to the May 2017 release of Venom #150 do not let this series get you down. We can assume this flat story telling of new host, Lee Price, will either get the hint, get a swift kick in the ass and make some changed or he will become a foot note in the history of Venom hosts. This book does have the potential to tell a great story and do a lot to set up the inevitable return of Flash Thompson to the Venom scene. The art has the possibility to really be great, it just needs the right direction to allow it to stand out in the right ways and not let it come across as incoherent. If you are feeling down after reading this issue just do a Google image search for Todd McFarlane Venom and take a nice trip down memory lane to get yourself pumped up for issue #150.
