    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Jan 6, 2021

    After the lull of the prior issue, the energy has been injected back in to the Venom series. The ending was just,chefs kiss, as Cates continues to pull from the back catalogue of Venom's vast history. Eddie refuses to go down without a fight, and he's back as the lovable anti-hero we just can't help but want to root for no matter his past. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jan 6, 2021

    Another outstanding issue in an incredible run on Venom, essential reading for the King In Black event and for Marvel fans at large. Cates continues to expand and explore the Venom mythology and fans will love the direction he’s taking in this issue, with both Venom and Brock, as well as the overall symbiote mythology. And as if excellent storytelling wasn’t enough we have fantastic art from Coello and Aburtov. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Mike Eakins Jan 6, 2021

    Cates, Coello, Aburtov, and Cowles have become the Super Friends when it comes to Venom. Ive talked about my undying love for this team on numerous occasions and it never gets old. How can it! Issue after issue it is one badass plot after another. Their efforts have become a thrill ride into Venom lore and will be continually talked about in comic circles for decades to come.

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jan 16, 2021

    Venom is serving as a perfect complement to King in Black, which makes total sense, as they're written by the same guy and linked up story-wise. This is the quieter part of the big action seen on the planet's surface. It uses that event as a way to further Eddie Brock's story and the overall mythos around him in some pretty awesome ways. Plus, it has a fantastic cliffhanger that fans will absolutely eat up. Read Full Review

    Venom #32 is Coello's best work on the Cates Venom run, and it's really not all that close. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Jan 6, 2021

    One of the few tie-ins of King in Black I actually liked, yet still it just doesn't really take us anywhere in the overall grand story. We get to see what our “dead” hero is experiencing out-of-body, and several pages of amazing art later, our hero may have a plan. A much better tie-in than the previous Venom issue, but still not enough “oomph” for what should be the most important book orbiting the Knull event. Read Full Review
