    SciFiPulse - Ian Cullen Dec 7, 2021

    This issue was much less chaotic than the last issue, but at the same time, the pacing was rather slow to a point where the action beats at the end felt much more staged than they needed to be. I'm also having a little difficulty in accepting or finding anything about Dylan Brock that I can relate to. Hopefully, that will change over the course of the story. Read Full Review

    THE DISPATCHIf you dig into VENOM #2 expecting to get answers about Eddie and his mysterious pit stop, you wont find them this week. Ram V turns the focus of the series towards Dylan and his new connection with the VENOM symbiote. Overall, readers dont uncover too much new information. Nonetheless, Ram uses this issue as setup in order to progress the structure of the narrative moving forward while introducing a few new characters to his story. Readers, the premise is pretty straightforward and easy to follow. Plus, its logical and direct by inadvertently answering questions about the aftermath of the KING IN BLACK event. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Dec 8, 2021

    The new era of Venom continues with an issue that is solid in respect to character development and moments, even if artistically it leans a bit too far into the dark and gloomy side of things. There is a ton of potential in this book and what concepts it is trying to deal with, and hopefully it can achieve the levels it wants to reach. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 1, 2021

    Venom #1 took the series in a whole new direction with some pretty grand concepts. Venom #2 dials things back a bit delivering action but also a focus on the characters and the impact of that debut issue. It hints we're going to get a series that can do the macro and the micro and balance it out, which should make for a very interesting read going forward. Read Full Review
