    VENOM #6, plain and simple, is my favorite book of the month. It's a perfect ending to an already sublime story arc. Donny Cates continues making this series into one of the most enjoyable books on the stands. Ryan Stegman makes this issue look as stunning as possible. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Matthew Sardo Sep 19, 2018

    VENOM #6 is a beautiful book with a complex storyline. On the surface, it looks like 90s glory, but a Donny Cates comic is much deeper than that. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Sep 24, 2018

    Venom continues it's hot streak possibly bringing some sort of conclusion to the battle between Venom and Knull but who's to say for sure.  Stegman's pencils continue to push this series into must buy territory, combined with the storytelling of Cates, this is almost unquestionably Marvel's consistently best book.

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Sep 23, 2018

    While I think there are some elements of Donny Cates story that work, I think what dragged this book down for me was that the tone felt off. As far as Venom is concerned, I'd rather see Eddie be the villain than a hero. This book hasn't really sold me on the idea that Venom is a "lethal protector" and tries to do too much, which is a classic Marvel sin. Where ever they decide to go with the story next, I hope it tries to bring Venom back to basics. Read Full Review
