    Never let it be said that Al Ewing doesn’t swing for the fences with his ideas and surprises. Venom #22 may start on a different foot considering where its previous issue ended, and what’s on the cover, but by the final page you’re going to be ready for the next chapter. Artist Ramón F. Bachs also finds his footing by the end, delivering major action set pieces that look great and manage to keep you guessing on a visual level. Plus, it’s not easy to make an emotionless robot look vulnerable, but Bachs handles it.

    Venom #22 brings two new players into this chaotic storyline, setting up the next phase in Dylan Brock’s grand plan and creating some intriguing questions to be answered in his father’s time-travel subplot.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Venom #22 brings Dylan Brock and the Venom symbiote into contact with an older and more odd symbiote – FLEXO. While the cover and synopsis tease that this would feature Eddie and FLEXO, it’s really Dylan and the Venom symbiote’s show. It’s their banter, dialogue, and overall dynamic that make this comic enjoyable with the art provided by Ramon f. Bachs. Unfortunately, FLEXO isn’t that great here as there’s very little personality or action from him. The comic builds up his vengeful motives, but even these are overshadowed by the reveal of the true mastermind pulling his strings, a character Marvel fans are very familiar with. However, their inclusion in this series makes the cast in this Venom run feel a little more crowded than it needs to be.

    After a few bonkers issues full of action, ‘Venom’ slows things down a bit to catch up with Dylan. In the process, it nicely fits a few more puzzle pieces together for Eddie’s next big throwdown.
