Donnie Cates has been a spectacular addition to Marvel.
Venom (unless written by David Micheline and fighting Spider-Man) has not.
Put 'em together and what have you got? Drippity Boppity....BOO! Another Donnie Cates book worth reading. Ryan Stegman's art is a solid fit for this title, moody and detailed, and none too realistic. There's a mystery. The Venom symbiote is having nightmares. His nightmares come to life. Good for them. If I have a complaint, and I'm whiny so I do, its that this is a tame start for the writer who made Loki the sorcerer supreme and had Thanos fight against himself in a battle to the death for Death.
It is a Venom book worth reading though. Small victories.
I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
