    OverallAnother solid issue, which adds a few more layers to the story and brings us a little closer to the conspiracy. Additionally, we also get some great internal dialogue from the Venom Symbiote about the problems it is having when it comes to a lack of a bond with Eddies son. This winds up being a nice bit of foreshadowing for a moment in which he confronts Eddies son when he is told to stay behind. Read Full Review

    VENOM #3 re-grounds the character and returns the premise of VENOM back to its roots. Ram V sets up a new villain with a sharp story that builds the identity of the symbiote itself and lays a strong foundation for the future of this run. Read Full Review

    Even with stunning cosmic flashbacks and monstrous visuals, the Venom symbiote has rarely felt more human than in this issue. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Dec 29, 2021

    Marvel Comics' near-decade of symbiote revival might be running on fumes as the latest Venom series tries to find its place within a sphere where seemingly everything has been said & done numerous times. All of the creative team are solid individuals that feel somewhat mismatched with this book and the premise that seems to be on display at the moment. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Spencer Perry Dec 22, 2021

    Where it struggles is in breaking form this issue, tilting characters like a dutch angle in cinema that seemed to be an interesting attempt but one that didn't work. Read Full Review
