    Too many Symbiotes, not enough Sympathy. Must dig deeper! Read Full Review

    This issue of Venomized pretty muched sealed the deal for me in a few ways. I was on okay terms with the story so far, but I thought that two issues might be enough space for Bunn to pull out the big guns to wrap things up in a way that might leave me wanting more when I wanted none of it in the first place. Sadly, #4 was a step backwards in both writing and art, and there’s no way that this could possibly be salvaged in just one issue. And now that I think about it, nothing really important happens here. You could skip from #3 to #5 and you could immediately fill in the blanks. So if you have been reading Venomized, save yourself some time and dough and just skip to #5 next week. If you’ve steered clear of the event entirely so far, congratulations. You’re smarter than me.

    While VENOMIZED #4 begins the climax that past issues have neglected, it struggles to find a genre it can belong to. Silly dialogue and plot points are boldly contrasted against morbid themes, forcing me to wonder what Bunn's true intentions are for the series. Read Full Review

    If Venomized ever had a narrative thread, it has certainly lost it by now. Read Full Review

    This was okay. This was the first issue where I wasn't really distracted by the spectacle of seeing these venomized heroes. And it's clear that the writer wants to be writing something besides Venom. Like, Monsters Unleashed. Which is where Kid Kaiju and his monsters come from, and they're OCs of the writer. All these grown men deferring to a child and asking him if he wants to fight is a little too much for me. But there are elements of coolness, like the hallucinations the Poisons have. Like Thanos with Death or Doom with his mom.

    This issue hurls the Poisons and the heroes into combat with all the nuance of a kiddo tipping one bucket of action figures into another. The script adds some extremely questionable nuts-and-bolts writing to the banal simplicity of the plot. The art has a decent level of polish, but it's also stiff and sterile. Together, the creative work dives down past forgettable to deliver one of the most thoroughly unenjoyable reads I've experienced in recent memory.
