    Cates and Bagley create an amalgamation of popular horror and action tropes situated on an island full of symbiotes. This is the stuff of Marvel dreams! Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Brian Daley Mar 16, 2020

    Bagley's art continues to be good. I always loved the way he draws Symbiotes and I always will. And I am in love with this depiction of Carnage with the orange glow to the eyes and mouth kind of like in Ultimate Spider-Man. The way the place Dylan goes looks is very cool, like a black inky void. Even Dylan is a silhouette in there. And of course, the thing at the very end of the issue is awesome and I can't wait for more in the next issue (hoping it does more than Immortal Hulk Venom in Absolute Carnage though). Anyway, this issue was very enjoyable. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 11, 2020

    Donny Cates continues to show us how if you cast your heroes in utter darkness with the only hope to draw on in its hero -- and in this case, the hero's son -- good things will come. Your interest is always up and you'll be thirsty for more unnerving imagery as the horrors of the Symbiote story continue to flesh out. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Mar 11, 2020

    Venom Island is turning into one of the best arcs of Cates’ run on Venom, which has taken me pleasantly by surprise. The art has been incredible, thanks to the talented team of Bagley, Owens and Martin. Cheap plot twist aside this issue’s been great, like all the subsequent ones. It’s building up to a hell of a finale and the next issue promises to be a good one. Read Full Review

    Ive been reading Venom comics since the early 90s. He has been a constant favorite of mine regardless of the host. Venom #24 has taken me back to my teenage years when I would read a Venom book and my mouth was ajar the whole time I was turning pages. Anticipation, fear, and excitement all in one book.

    Everything I liked in this issue is being hyped up now to really take off in the next installment. Again, its not a bad book by any means, but I'm just ready for the next arc to begin already. Read Full Review

    Venom #24 is far from the strongest individual issue of Cates' run. It's oddly paced and seriously missing Ryan Stegman. Read Full Review
