    Seeds planted much earlier in the Venom run are beginning to blossom, an excellent alternate reality story is reason enough to recommend this story but all of the reveals in this issue make it an excellent story. DO NOT READ ANY SPOILERS FOR THIS ISSUE. Make sure you buy and read it as soon as possible. Read Full Review

    Venom #28 is great! I haven't had as much fun reading a Venom arc as I've been getting out of Cates' newest story, and three issues in it hasn't disappointed me. Read Full Review

    Final thoughts on Venom #28: well Venomaniacs, I'm still taking this issue in and contemplating what this does for the book going forward. This is probably the biggest issue that Cates has written since taking over the book and is yet another example of why he belongs on the Mt. Rushmore of Venom writers. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Charlie Ridgely Sep 23, 2020

    In a world where everyone is symbiotic, the illustrations need some style, identity, and definition. This book lacks all three and it's distracting. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 23, 2020

    This is a better direction for the story arc, but it still doesn't mesh with the attitude and mature themes of the main series. Something isn't quite clicking here, which is a shame, as there are sound ideas at work. Read Full Review
