Man, I haven’t done a re-read post since September! Sorry about that. As it turns out, it’s actually time for a crossover! During February-March 1970 Harry popped up in the pages of Captain America, written by Stan Lee and drawn by Gene Colan. It’s hard to work out exactly where these appearances fit in with… Read More Captain America #137-138 (1971)
I’m still enjoying Gold Goblin a lot, much more than I thought I would be. The ghost of Harry continues to play a large role, especially in this issue, so let’s take a look at him! Norman, fresh off his fight with Queen Goblin (aka an Ashley Kafka poisoned with his own sins) is having… Read More Gold Goblin #3
I hope you all had a good 2022! I know a lot of Spidey fans have not enjoyed this year in Spider-Man and I also have not, but I think I may enjoy 2023 a little more considering we’re getting a fair amount of (hopefully) good Harry content! Let’s see what’s coming up. Marvel’s Spider-Man… Read More 2023 will hopefully be a good year for Harry fans!
So over the past few weeks I’ve written many angry tweets and posts about how Peter and Harry and even Liz have been sacrificed on the altar of making a murdering war criminal child abuser Nice, and I still think that, but Gold Goblin is actually annoyingly good. Mostly because unlike the current ASM run… Read More Gold Goblin #2
His birthday is today, the 13th of December! I don’t know the thought process that goes into picking the birthdays of established comic characters but it’s interesting that Harry’s birthday is in December and his first ever appearance was in ASM #31 – 31 being 13 backwards, and the comic’s cover date was December. (Oh,… Read More Happy birthday, Harry Osborn
I gather Dark Web is already very unpopular due to Ben Reilly’s newfound villainy and hey, it’s unpopular with me too! Yes, it’s the first issue in forever to feature Harry’s friends actually mourning him, but… Well, you’ll see. It’s nice to see the Coffee Bean and it’s nice to see Peter, Liz and Flash… Read More Dark Web #1: Cloning and Moaning
Well, here we are, the first story in over a year to feature Harry in any capacity whatsoever! This is the first issue of Gold Goblin by Christopher Cantwell and Lan Medina. As Norman tries to adjust to life as a “good guy” (mark my words, it won’t last) he finds the ghost of his… Read More Gold Goblin #1
Are you ready to see Norman Osborn as a superhero in Gold Goblin? I’m… not, I’ll admit it. But this CBR interview with the series writer Christopher Cantwell is giving me hope. CBR: Starting off, let’s get this out of the way — seeing Norman Osborn as a hero is an inherently odd concept. Christopher… Read More The upcoming Gold Goblin series & interview with Christopher Cantwell
As part of the upcoming “Dark Web”, we get to meet Harry’s oldest son as Red Goblin. You’ve seen a little preview of this before, well, here’s the main event! Looking much older than a teenager there, Normie. How old are you meant to be again? Thirteen…? Ten…? You’ll remember that “Red Goblin” was an… Read More Normie gets his own series!
Eugene Patilio, a Z-list superhero who I was always quite fond of, showed up on She-Hulk last night! Well, sort of. That was #NotMyEugene, as Twitter might say. Others have pointed out that She-Hulk’s rich loser, amusing though he was, didn’t really have much in common with the Frog-Man of the comics, and was really… Read More Harry Osborn and Eugene “Frog-Man” Patilio: A ribbeting parallel
