• Between missions with the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, Venom fights strange, violent aliens and helps strange, peaceful aliens. Aliens can be strange, is what we're saying.
•  All the while, he's being trailed by a mysterious warship! Are its operators violent or peaceful?
•  Flash and his Klyntar are working better than ever, but there's a lot Flash doesn't know about being an Agent of the Cosmos. And what he doesn't know could kill him!

    Comicsverse - Chris Galvin Dec 23, 2015

    As comics go, it is a rip-roaring adventure, with a cocksure hero who deals with things head on. My only concern with the series so far is the lacking sense of danger. Action packed acrobatics and space adventures are enjoyable to read, but so far it feelslike there's no threat or danger that Thompson can't handle. And that could prove detrimental to such a fun book. Once you stop caring about a character, you could very well just stop reading. Having said that, with only two issues gone, Thompson has plenty of time to add layers to Flash and his story. Here's hoping it's sooner rather than later because I love this book! Read Full Review

    Venom: Space Knight #2 continues to deliver solid character work, though divisive artwork and middling narration choices hamper Thompson's efforts. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Russell Troxel Jan 10, 2016

    Venom: Space Knight is a comic of ups and downs. On one hand, the writing for both Flash and 803 is well done, cementing them as no-nonsense soldier and morose, if unoriginal, drone respectively. And most of the illustration is well done, especially when the symbiote really gets into the action. On the other hand: the faces. Whether artist Ariel Olivetti is too into realism or just doesn't have the skill, the faces, primarily Flash's, look out of place in the comic's more cartoonish style. Most importantly, the writing touches on Flash's personal struggles with addiction as he works a lonely job. Internal turmoil has always been the best story for Venom, so hopefully this will come up more, since the symbiote isn't angry anymore. Read Full Review

    This book is the best Marvel Cosmic book out there right now. Since Marvel can't publish ROM Spaceknight, they used Agent Venom as a surprising replacement. But, it works well. The book is fun, and the story is simple but sets up for more arcs down the road. Flash's character is well realized, and he is used much better here than he was on Bendis' abomination of a run on Guardians of the Galaxy. This book has been a pleasant surprise, and needs more attention. Ariel Olivetti's style has been hit-or-miss for me in the past, but it works well in this alien setting in a pulpy throwback fashion.
