    Comicsverse - Aaron Berkowitz Dec 5, 2018

    VENOM #9 tells an incredibly grim story. Eddie Brock's dark inner monologue takes the spotlight this issue. Cates adds some superb characterization for Eddie, digging into his psyche to tell a bleak, but engaging, story. Ryan Stegman and Frank Martin pair their art to the dialogue, making the issue look just as somber as the writing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Dec 18, 2018

    While this issue starts off at a slower pace than usual, it all pays off by the end. Donny Cates continues to impress me with the depth hes giving this book and its characters and Ryan Stegman and the entire art team kicks butt as well. Yea, this issue has some action, but the mysterious things going on in Eddies life are much more interesting and I cant wait to see more. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Dec 7, 2018

    A really interesting direction to take this book, obviously the symbiote will be back someday but for now this book has a really unique tone, almost like a monster movie or even something out there like Insomnia. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Dec 7, 2018

    There is a lot of other great character moments as well. I like the confrontation Eddie has with his father and the dive we take into his past. We're reminded that Eddie's life was troubled way before he became Venom. If you think about it, his past might even be the reason Venom was birthed to begin with. Towards the end of the issue, Eddie deals with some unexpected revelations. I'm looking forward to seeing how the Abyss arc dives into the family drama down the line. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Charlie Ridgely Dec 5, 2018

    Things are a bit downhill from there as the issue continues, but it's still a strong entry in a very strong book, and it's certainly worth the read. Read Full Review
