    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Sep 20, 2020

    Web of Venom: Wraith drops some hints as to what we can expect for King in Black, the comic that will usher in the arrival of Knull on Earth. This is the appetizer to the main course and there is so much more to dig into. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 8, 2020

    What makes this fever-dream of a comic work so well is how it blends sci-fi with concepts of pure evil, identity, and loneliness. There are visuals that are batsh*t crazy and dark, like one might see in film noir. Web of Venom: Wraith drips with techno-fetish darkness with a touch of cyber-punk and a loner revenge tale you don't often see in superhero comics. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Sep 9, 2020

    Honestly, Web of Venom: Wraith #1 is an absolute must-have tie-in for the Venom series. While this is likely to be a one-shot, it added a lot of great depth of detail for the main Venom run. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Sep 9, 2020

    One of the better Web of Venom issues that serves more as a continuation of the titular character Wraith. If you've been following the Knull storylines in Donny Cates' main Venom book, this won't really move the needle on any gauges, but if you're invested in Wraith, you'll get a hefty return.

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Sep 9, 2020

    Venom fans will want to check out Web of Venom: Wraith #1, if only for the lore. That said, I don’t think they’ll be disappointed with the story they’re getting. It successfully creates a narrative that is desolate and builds tension subtly. At any rate, be sure to give this a read one way or another before King in Black comes out in December.

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Sep 11, 2020

    In the meantime there was a lot of money left on the table. Is Wraith Dead? What was his father's relationship with Knull? And what of Wraith's experience of his soul being eaten by parasites and turning into one of the Nameless? What about the guy that killed his parents that he was supposed to be looking for? This is not how I was expecting this to end up, especially from Cates. The art by Guii Villanova was impressive and had plenty of beautiful splash pages. Read Full Review
