    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Aug 13, 2020

    One of the most exciting and revelatory issues in Cates’ entire run, an achievement in itself, this issue cannot be missed. The symbiote mythology is further explored and expanded on as more new questions are introduced. Virus and Codex are both exciting new characters. Parallel universes are always great fun and we’ve never come across a universe quite like this one. The art matches the frentic pace of the comic. Cates’ run on Venom is one of the most exciting things happening in comics at the moment and this is one of the best issues to date. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Aug 12, 2020

    Overall, this energetic issue really grabbed onto me, and took me for one hell of a high powered ride. The art style, while different, is not without its merits as Gedeon gets to draw Venom with some excellent new abilities. This series continues to be as unpredictable as ever and Im excited to see what Cates has in store for us next. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Mike Eakins Aug 13, 2020

    Here we are, another Venom issue down and another appearance of Knull and a visit to the Ultimate Universe. Im not too sure what to think about being in 1610 and if I like Eddie and Dylan in 1610, however, this is Donny Cates. He knows Venom and he knows how to tell a great Venom story and that is what this is. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Aug 12, 2020

    Two issues in and I already feel like this has more than made up for the lackluster “Venom Island” arc preceding it. This book's pros outweighed whatever personal cons I had with it, and even given those cons, they're more pet peeves than out-right detriments (well, I do feel like the art wasn't very polished, so I'll argue that as a genuine criticism). Venom Beyond has me excited again for Cates' Venom. Read Full Review

    It may not be the prettiest issue of the run, but Venom #27 brings plenty of fun to the table. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 12, 2020

    Venom #27 is a book that doesn't quite add up and will likely be forgotten when collected. Read Full Review
