Review

Venom (2018-) #15 drops readers into the middle of an epic magic-laden battle taking place between Eddie Brock and Jack O’ Lantern; as the city burns, Eddie Brock struggles to not only protect those around him, but also, to survive.

Thanks to Cullen Bunn’s breakneck pacing and ability to deliver information naturally through dialogue, Venom (2018-) #15 is an incredibly quick read. There’s a great deal of action in this issue–as the majority of it takes place during a battle–but there are still excellent character moments that showcase impressive depth-of-story.

This issue’s artwork is incredible; panel after panel of highly-detailed illustrations make for an immersive reading experience that allows readers to feel the heat of the flames, hear the screams of pedestrians, and experience the anxiety and dread of the situation. Bunn’s script allows for a great deal of creativity, but the artists working on this book take full advantage of the opportunity to dazzle readers with their impressive skills. And, even though pages are, at times, filled with a chaotic amount of detail, reading Venom (2018-) #15 is a pleasure.

Bottom Line

Teeming with action and telling character moments, Venom (2018-) #15 is an epic War of the Realms tie-in.

The Worst Dudes #1 Review

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
