    A great ending, or rather many smaller endings, to the story and to a few dangling plot threads in the Venom storyline. This series may have felt like a bit of a cash grab, but based on this ending it's safe to say it added something to Venom's journey and even made him more interesting while doing it.

    Venom First Host #5 is a fitting end to the series. Personally, I would have enjoyed a fully functional Tel-Kar running around the universe. But if the last five issues have shown anything it is that Costa knows these characters and knows where they should end up. It is sad to say goodbye to a series but at least it was a fun read.

    An enjoyable, yet mixed-bag conclusion to an enjoyable, yet mixed-bag mini-series of Marvel's lethal protector. Read Full Review
