    Web of Venom Empyres End may be one of the scariest stories youve ever read. The script and imagery work so well together. Clay Mcleod Chapman is on my radar now. He has an eye and ear for good scary stories. If youre not ready for Halloween to be over, check out Web of Venom Empyres End. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Nov 4, 2020

    While not essential reading for either event that the title suggests it bridges, this is exactly what a great tie-in issue should do. An entertaining story that builds excitement for the upcoming event, it doesn’t feel like a tie-in for the sake of it. Not essential reading by any means, but readers who decide to skip over it will definitely be missing out. Chapman continues to bring horror to his symbiote stories and this is a great preview for Knulls arrival to Earth. Read Full Review

    Web of Venom: Empyre's Endis a good connecting story betweenEmpyreandKing in Back, but it's an even better space horror. If you have any doubt how dangerous Symbiotes are, simply pick up this comic and see Earth and its heroes are in big trouble. Read Full Review

    The subject matter's matched with some equally grim and despondent imagery that's straight out of a horror flick and leaves no question about how grim a situation the crew and everyone else is in. Read Full Review

    Guiu and Chapman combine their talents to craft a tension filled terror of a on-shot, leaving behind the events of Empyre to herald the Coming of Knull. Read Full Review

    Symbiotes on the page can take any shape and configuration. Limiting them to more familiar appearances robs some of the horror of the remainder of the book. The book ends as it must, with the death of many of our heroes, few survivors and the revelation that Knull and the Symbiote army have arrived. Read Full Review
