During a routine battle with the villainous Jack O'Lantern, Venom finds himself transported to a far-off world and learns a terrible truth - a deadly new species called the Poisons has emerged from the vastness of space, and to make matters worse, they're hunting Venoms! Trapped on the planet's surface with a ragtag band of Venomized heroes, Eddie has no choice but to mount a counteroffensive and hope to find a way home!

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Sep 21, 2017

    A great beginning that captures the spirit of fun of 1980s Marvel comics. There's nothing deep, just action and adventure starring Venom and slew of familiar faces bonded to a symbiote. If more Marvel comics were like this, I'd be buying more Marvel comics. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Jaleh Najafali Sep 11, 2017

    Venomverse #1 is a solid introduction to the "Venomverse" event that gives us just enough to want more. Cullen Bunn, Matt Yackey, and Iban Coello form a cohesive team that knows where they want to take this story and how want to do so. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 6, 2017

    A good intro to the world as Eddie Brock serves as a surrogate for the audience who knows nothing. That said, the event doesn't seem that big yet and is more of a singular story about Eddie. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Luke Miller Sep 8, 2017

    Overall, a really good start for something which I admittedly had zero expectations. Itll be fun to see where this story goes from here. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 6, 2017

    Venomverse #1 is a solid start to an event that feels like turn your brain off fun. It's nothing that's groundbreaking and treads previous storylines with a Venom twist but for a late summer/early fall popcorn story, it'll fill that gap nicely. Read Full Review

  • 7.5 - Harrison Rawdin Sep 7, 2017

    Venomverse #1 is fun from cover to cover! The creative team delivers the goods with a satisfying opener that allows enough space to get the ball rolling on this event. What we have here is not high brow entertainment by any stretch, and it's not trying to be, but if you're a Venom fan then picking this book up really is a no brainer. So by all means rush out and grab yourself a symbiote drenched copy! Read Full Review

    Venomverse should be a fun event if it continues to not take itself too seriously. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Sep 6, 2017

    As it stands, it's too early to tell if black is more fitting for the Marvel Universe, but as a debut, Venomverse's beautiful artwork has my interest piqued for a second installment. Read Full Review

    CourtOfNerds - Benjamin Raven Sep 8, 2017

    The first issue of Venomverse from Marvel (with Cullen Bunn) was exactly what I thought it was going to be, in a crammed together confusing mess. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 6, 2017

    Venomverse #1 boasts strong artwork, but that's about all propping up this otherwise bland, unremarkable crossover. This series gives readers little reason to care about either the cast of Venoms or the enemy currently hunting them. It's clear this event is meant to tap into the strong response to Spider-Verse, but it only replicates the most superficial elements of that story. Read Full Review
