    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Feb 3, 2021

    WhileThe King in Black series has definitely been a brilliant highlight to this climactic event, you can not miss this recent run of Venom as it's clear the two are going to come crashing together very soon. Cates's fresh thinking and frenzied ideas have reminded us why we love Venom and elevated him to an elite Marvel status. Read Full Review

    Not only is this issue essential reading to Venom fans, and the King in Black event, this series is important to Marvel fans in general.

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 3, 2021

    Venom #33 takes an interesting step forward when it comes to Symbiote legacy. Cates is adding more richness to the way these aliens work while plodding forward with Eddie's personal journey in finding resolution as a man who can't see how he's a hero. This issue suffers from excessive exposition and speeches, but makes up for it well enough with some mind-bending ideas. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Feb 4, 2021

    Iban's art combined with all the screen time Eddie Brock and Flash Thompson share together are the highlights of this chapter in the King in Black saga. This issue co-exists perfectly with the happenings take have unfolded over in the main King in Black book, giving this issue a lot of merit as an essential tie-in. However, expect quite a bit of inaction from our main heroes for most of the book before they finally take the fight to Knull. Read Full Review
