    VENOM #14 improves upon the first issue of the arc in a few ways, including Cullen Bunn's fantastic characterization of Eddie Brock. However, it's still plagued with pacing issues. Iban Coello's art, though, continues to shine. Read Full Review

    What an exciting issue. Action fans can ask for no more once they pick up this issue. It's page one to the very end and keeps our adrenalin pumping throughout. They keep us guessing with the way the new suit doesn't quite work as well as the Symbiote suit and Eddie has to figure out new ways to make it work. A little sub plot that keeps us on our toes and makes this title more interesting. A great addition to the war of the realm's saga. Read Full Review

    Given the character's sci-fi roots, it's hard to imagine Venom working so well in this sword-and-sorcery epic, but thanks to Bunn and Coello building upon an already strong foundation, this symbiote feels right at home in the War of the Realms. Read Full Review

    Final ThoughtsThis arc puts the breaks on the big Knull (Absolute Carnage) storyline prior to issue 13 and places Eddie on his own in a corner of the War of the Realms event to play out his own personal God of War fantasies. Treat this loose event tie-in purely as a filler, but take away the fantastic art and treat yourself to some long overdue action. Yes, this arc may be spinning it's wheels until Cates returns, but I had fun with this issue. Read Full Review

    A good arc if you're a fan of classic Venom, but you might want to skip it if you're following the current Venom series for more than surface level fun. Read Full Review

    This angle from Brocks perspective is interesting but it feels more like Bunn is just here to play with the toys in the toy box for a bit without messing anything up. If thats the case, and Bunns hands are tied as to what he can write, you cant blame him for the pacing as well as what hes allowed to do. However, that stinks for fans that really wanted to see what Bunn was capable of doing with Venom if he was allowed to really let loose. Maybe hell get his chance next issue? Readers can only hope.

    The story is fun at times, but it's the artistry of these two that keeps it engaging throughout. Read Full Review
