    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Aug 8, 2019

    Absolute Carnage is coming and I cannot wait. If Web of Venom: Funeral Pyre is even a sampling of what's in store for us, this event is going to be incredible. I will be honest in saying I haven't thought too much about Andi (or her life as Mania) in some time, yet I am enthralled by her story and her fight for her life. That's a testament to the creative team and the story they put together. This book scared the crap out of me. Read Full Review

    An absolute must-read for Venom/Carnage fans, Web Of Venom: Funeral Pyre (2019) #1 is one of the most intense debut issues I've ever read. Read Full Review

    The doomsday clock ticks a little closer to the coming Carnage, and worse, there's little time left as it is. One of many former symbiote hosts, Andi Benton fights a one-sided battle against a lunatic grasping at Godhood in one of the final preludes to “Absolute Carnage”. The full extent of Andi's hell powers doesn't come even close to a sampling of Carnage's new enhancements. If everything here is just a warm-up act for the full Carnage story, I'm ready for show to begin. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Jul 25, 2019

    Embracing horror while allowing newer readers to be reminded of who Andi Benton is, "Web of Venom: Funeral Pyre" acts as a fitting prelude to the "Absolute Carnage" horror crossover. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Forrest Hollingsworth Jul 24, 2019

    An interesting, complex, and seriously scary issue that ultimately focuses too much on the past to give its best, and new, ideas the breathing room they need. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Jul 24, 2019

    Without even talking about the quality of its presentation, I can say that I do not recommend picking up Funeral Pyre just because of how little happens in this $4.99 book. Literally all you need to know from here on out is that Andi is in New York again. It would have been easier to talk up if we were given any kind of introspective character moments or more consistent art, but sadly, that’s not the case. Don’t check this one out. Read Full Review

    Considering its tire-spinning point in a larger story and lack of entertaining execution, this is one one-shot worth skipping. Read Full Review
