    Comicsverse - Aaron Berkowitz Feb 20, 2019

    VENOM #11 is pure quality. From start to finish, this book is filled with dialogue and plot points that really resonate. Donny Cates delivers the best issue of this series, so far. Ryan Stegman and Joshua Cassara draw some truly beautiful pages. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Mar 5, 2019

    This presents a pretty crazy idea that becomes all the more harrowing with the understanding that the threat of Carnage looms in the distance. Eddie is going to have to find a way to work with his symbiote if he hopes to survive that, but how could he forgive it for what it's done? Cates continues to revitalize Venom, redefining the character from the ground up. It is a bold new take and I could not be more excited for it. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Feb 22, 2019

    I'm impressed that this series is selling as well as it is, usually stuff this well written goes over people's heads and gets dropped. #betterthanwatchmen? You decide. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Feb 20, 2019

    When it starts, Venom #11 is all about cancer and the Brock family. That theme holds true at the end, but in between, Eddie ferrets out some huge, transformative truths. This issue does a near-flawless job of engaging the reader's curiosity and compelling continued attention. Eddie's next steps are unclear, but they show every sign of being unmissable.

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 20, 2019

    If you've ever had a major fight with a partner you'll relate to this story. You'll also know some fights change a relationship and you're definitely getting one of those in this issue between the Symbiote and Eddie Brock. Passions flair in this emotionally captivating issue. Read Full Review

    Donny Cates, you are seriously winning me over. Not since the Rex arc (issues one through six) have I enjoyed this book so much. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mattypwbrown Feb 19, 2019

    Another great issue of Venom that kept building and progressed the story in a meaningful way. For a book, without really any fight scenes of anything crazy for the artists to really sink their teeth into it looks fantastic and shows the ability of the art team to take a story such as this and make it look so badass. As with Donnys style again there was an interesting cliffhanger at the end that has me bursting at the seams to get my hands on issue 12! Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Branden Feb 20, 2019

    The Venom series continues to move forward dealing with Eddie's family issues, while forcing him to confront the symbiote, and simultaneously sort out what is reality from fiction within his own mind. All that and the Maker continues to make his presence felt adding yet another layer of intrigue to this mystery. Venom always remains at the top of my reading list each month, mostly for its story consistency and beautiful art, I just hope we start to get some definitive answers about what's really going on before the book falls into War of the Realms and changes teams for a few months.
