    If you’ve been reading Donny Cates’ run on Venom there’s no doubt in my mind you’ll be heading to your local book shop at your earliest convenience to pick it up, this is one of the best things happening in comics right now. And if you’re not then you need to catch up on the rest of this run then buy this one. The writing, the art, the characters, it’s all top notch. A standout issue in an incredible run.

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jan 8, 2020

    God is still coming, but things aren’t exactly looking up for Eddie in the meantime in Venom #22. But I think that’s the real niche of the Donny Cates era of Venom. There has always been this drive to the stories, along with the layered characterization, and “Venom Island” seems to be continuing that streak in spades. Not only a treat script-wise, but the addition of Mark Bagley to the title gives it a real visual street cred as a major Spider-title. Too bad Knull is going to just destroy it all when he gets to Earth. Until then, fingers crossed we keep getting fun, engaging issues like Venom #22. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 8, 2020

    Venom continues to be a great rollercoaster of surprises, twists, and head-turning action storytelling. Cates and company continue to prove you can stuff 20 pages with consistently intriguing material, when so many other books have so little to tell. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Jan 8, 2020

    Donny Cates Venom title has had an absence of actual Venom (i.e. Eddie AS Venom, wearing the Venom symbiote) for a while now, but he manages to tell us fun action story nonetheless with just a powerless, resourceful Eddie going up against some crazy odds. We may be stranded on this island for a while, but if things continue to escalate like this, this story can only get wilder and wilder! Read Full Review
