A matter of days ago, Dylan Brock thought his biggest problem was his father's preoccupation with running the symbiote hive as its King in Black. Now, Dylan's father is dead, and the only vestige that is left of him is in VENOM, the dangerous parasitic alien that Eddie implored Dylan not to get close to. And without Eddie's guidance, Dylan stands poised to give into the same darkness his father did...

    If you dig fight scenes, you'll love Venom #7. The art is fabulous as it captures every punch, kick, and bladed arm gouging into flesh. The plotting is slower, but that's in part because it wants to let you soak up the visual details as Dylan may lose another father figure. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Apr 13, 2022

    Venom #7 shows Dylan try to be the hero but he ends up taking on more than he can handle. The comic has the young Venom face off against the fearsome, crimson symbiote Bedlam, and Bryan Hitch illustrates him very well. Bedlam looks cool but readers' mileage will vary on this new villain. However, the comic book still manages to finish the more grounded story while slowly advancing the series' overarching plot. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Apr 18, 2022

    This book feels a bit like the Malibu Comics old Prime book with the young hero in over his head. But this book lacks that hero's heart, insecurities, deep character interactions and real life conflicts. The book's greatest drawback is failing to make us truly care about Dylan. He feels very much like a placeholder until Eddie's return. But it gets enough right that it may improve now that Eddie is back, albeit as a villain. Read Full Review

    Ram V's work as the new writer has been somewhat inconsistent, carrying the baggage of what fans expect from a Venom comic while also exploring new avenues for the characters. The kinks are still being worked out, but it's fine to read. Read Full Review

    Venom #6 continues Ram V's slow-paced Dylan story. While that's not necessarily bad, I am still trying to grab onto something in this run to make me care, and watching a biker gang fight isn't it. Maybe the cliffhanger will lead to that, but only time will tell. Again, the art is excellent, but this story needs more forward momentum before I can recommend it. Read Full Review
