    VENOM #13 changes Eddie's status quo in an exciting way. However, the poorly-paced plotting serves as a detriment for the issue, holding back its full potential as a superb issue. Iban Coello's character designs are top notch. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 24, 2019

    A good tie-in if you're looking for violence, horror undertones, and a Venom that's all about killing. It's classic Venom built for war. Read Full Review

    Final ThoughtsCoello and Bunn deliver their first chapter of a three part War of the Realms companion story that cranks up the pace of the ongoing, but leaves the most recent life-changing reveals and new questions Cates dropped on readers untouched. You'll have to wait until Cates returns if you're hoping for more in the way of the status quo his last arc left Eddie in, and its anyone's guess just how deep this three parter will weigh-in on the core event Jason Aaron has unleashed unto Midgar, but with what Bunn and Coello gave us, it was visually refreshing seeing Eddie do what he hasn't in so long…be Venom (well…a mock “Asgard” Venom…) Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 4, 2019

    While this is a departure from the incredible run this series has had so far, it's far from an unwelcome one. Venom isn't dead center in War of the Realms, but he wouldn't fit in there anyway. This shows just how far and wide this is reaching that even someone like this can get caught up in it. This is a horror take on this big event, showing us some truly terrifying monsters while keeping the scariest one of them all right in the middle with a long tongue lashing out in a sinister grin.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Apr 24, 2019

    Venom #13 kicks off a tie-in story that looks dangerously by-the-numbers in terms of plot. It's enhanced with formidable art, though, and the script makes full use of its opportunities to examine Eddie's character. This makes the reading rewarding and shields the story - for now - from being dismissed as skippable. Read Full Review
