    Though the action sequences and artwork excels, the narrative of VENOMVERSE #5 ultimately falls flat as it segues into generic territory. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Jaleh Najafali Oct 20, 2017

    Venomverse #5 is an abrupt end to an otherwise satisfying event. Although Cullen Bunn, Iban Coello, and Matt Yackey form a strong team, their successes aren't enough to save this muddled final issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 4, 2017

    Venomverse had picked up steam following an underwhelming debut last month. Sadly, the crossover falls back into old habits in its final issue. This closing issue downplays the more interesting character dynamics in favor of a generic battle between the two sides. Iban Coello's art helps to make that battle clean and easy on the eyes, but that can't change the hollow, anticlimactic nature of the story. This issue seems more interested in setting up a sequel than properly tying up loose ends, and that's never a good thing. Read Full Review
