    It's probably just as well that Venom is gearing up for a major status quo change, because this series clearly isn't working in its present state.

    It shouldnt be a secret that this series is not a fan favorite. The cameo at the end of the issue says a lot about the direction editorial decided to take. Matt Costa isnt a bad writer, but this isnt the vehicle for him. The art has steadily improved each issue, but is ultimately not enough to make this a series to invest in. Read Full Review
