    Death of the Venomverse #5 truly lives up to its name, and while it did deliver what it promised, that isn’t exactly satisfying. Last issue set up what could have been a major turning point in the series, but it ultimately leads to nothing but more death. At some point the constant brutality and death just wears thin, and there’s not enough hope or silver lining to help balance that out. You just leave the issue feeling empty, and while the work of Gerardo Sandoval, Jim Campbell, and Victor Olazaba is impressive at times, the hitting of the same note over and over overpowers it. Writer Cullen Bunn delivered some cool moments throughout the series, and at the end of the day the series did what it set out to do, but ultimately there just wasn’t anything outside of that that I could get invested in.
