    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Feb 12, 2020

    Another incredible issue in an outstanding run. Cates consistently increases the tension, and here he shows us there can be consequences in comics. Bagley’s art makes the island feel real, and Martins colors make the most of the great art. Everyone needs to be reading Venom Island. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Mike Eakins Feb 12, 2020

    Cates and Bagley continue to perfectly capture every single detail that makes every single panel believably real and tell a story that continues to be one of the best on the shelves. Just when you think you have an idea of what direction Cates is going in, you turn the page and find yourself in a state of shock and surprise. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Brian Daley Feb 13, 2020

    Bagley's art is really good here, as usual. I'm in love with the way he draws Symbiotes, Carnage in particular. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Feb 12, 2020

    Venom Island's latest issue ends with a big shocker of an ending, suggesting that things might be winding down, but with two more issues left, don't lower your guard; something's up Donny Cates's sleeves. This story hasn't yet been able to reach the same highs as the Absolute Carnage event it follows, but I've been enjoying this arc a little more with each issue. Read Full Review
