    VenomVerse #5 Review (Spoilers) (+Event Review)

    Here we are, at the end of a weekly event that managed to retain the same creative team and miss no deadlines. That in and of itself is impressive, but does the creative team stick the landing? And how does this event shape up as a whole in the…

    VenomVerse #4 Review (Spoilers)

    As VenomVerse rushes towards the finish line, I find myself wondering just how conclusive of an ending this series will get. In August 2017, Venom 153 sold nearly thirty one thousand units by Diamond’s estimation. In that same month, each issue of Edge of VenomVerse sold around forty thousand…

    Venom 154 Review (Spoilers)

    VenomVerse #3 Review (Spoilers)

    VenomVerse continues to barrel ahead, as we enter into the partitioning chapter of this event. Both sides  have plans in motion, but is there someone in the mix who could screw up everything for one side?  VenomVerse #3: What’s Another Word for Massacre? Writer: Cullen Bunn Artist: Iban Coello…

  • VenomVerse #2 Review (Spoilers)

    VenomVerse #2 Review (Spoilers)

    In my previous review, I wrote about a rumored Venom Inc. miniseries/on-going spinning out of VenomVerse. Sadly, this turned out to be a crossover between Dan Slott’s Amazing Spider-Man and Mike Costa’s Venom series. One that will see Peter back with the symbiote and Flash Thompson playing a role…

    VenomVerse #1 Review (Spoilers)

    Here we go, VenomVerse is here. Will the creative team of Deadpool and the Mercs for Money deliver unto us a celebration of Venom and his various hosts or will this comic be something mindless you can skip? Check it out.  VenomVerse #1: Not The Venom We Deserve…  Writer:…

    Edge of VenomVerse War Stories #1

    VenomVerse kicks off today, but before we can get into the event proper, we have one final issue of Edge of VenomVerse to deal with. The Edge of VenomVerse titles have showcased some strong work from creators who do not get work often from Marvel, a trait which continues…

    Edge of VenomVerse #5 Review (Spoilers)

    And with this review, I will finally be caught up with this insane shipping schedule for Edge of VenomVerse. It’ll be nice to take a little breather before… VenomVerse ships weekly in September? With an additional anthology issue? FFS.  Regardless, this issue delivers us the second Pool of this…

  • Edge of VenomVerse #4 Review (Spoilers)

    Edge of VenomVerse #4 Review (Spoilers)

    Marvel, as of late, has been looking outside the large field of working comic book writers for new talent. Young Adult novelists (Gabby Riveria/Christina Strain/Sina Grace/Rainbow Rowell), political journalists (Ta-Nehisi Coates), poets (Saladin Ahmed) and notable authors (RL Stine, Stephen King, Margaret Stohl) have all had some degree of…

    Venom #153 Review (Spoilers)

    The first arc of Marvel’s Legacy Initiative comes to a conclusion, pairing up the classic Eddie Brock iteration of Venom with Marvel’s smartest… shiniest new genius, Luella Lafayette. The bleeding of the old with the new, with some big cover numbers on it is what the Legacy initiative is…

  • Edge of Venomverse #2 Review (Spoilers)

    Edge of Venomverse #2 Review (Spoilers)

    Edge of Spiderverse #2 was the infamous Spider-Gwen issue and this issue definitely will not launch a new breakout star. But I appreciate Marvel trying to expand Gwenpool’s presence. She’s managed to keep an on-going longer than most in this fickle environment (#21 is scheduled for December 2017).  Also…

    Venom #152 Review (Spoilers)

    Y’know who is one character I have a strong dislike for? Lunella Lafayette, the Moon Girl. I have a bone to pick with any young girl calling herself the smartest character in the Marvel Universe unless her name is Valeria Richards. So how does a supporting role for one…

    Venom #150 Review

    Well that was a long break, both from the Crawlspace and the character of Venom. Unfortunately, John had to step down from the book and with a big Venom event on the horizon, I figured I would give this new series a shot. After all, how bad could it…
