    Red Goblin #1 is something very different. A new take on a character that is so out of place in the genre is what makes the comic so intriguing to jump into. Read Full Review

    The complexity of Red Goblin #1, though, may also make this series a bit impenetrable to the casual Spider-Man reader like myself. Im vaguely aware of the circumstances around Normies current deal, but thats arguably a requirement of someone like myself who reviews comics, so I have to wonder how this lands for someone who barely knows who Carnage even is, let alone spinoff characters. Writer Alex Paknadel does his best to provide the reader context, as does the ever-stalwart recap page, but its a lot of knowledge to have going in that it could be alienating for non-completists.
