    Comic Watch - Tyler Davis Apr 20, 2023

    This series only continues to get better, and is Marvel's most underrated title on the stands. Every month it brings with it narrative and character quality over anything else. It uses the symbiote gimmick for both strong introspection and over-top, heart-pounding violence. Don't miss out on this book. Read Full Review

    Red Goblin's main antagonist hasn't really captivated me yet, but as long as Normie and Norman are at the book's core, this series has my complete attention. Read Full Review

    This issue was a bit heavy handed but it still worked. I hate the litany of spider-people that populate marvel these days but for some reason Normie feels a bit different. Perhaps this is what I really wanted with Dylan Brock but didn't get. Either way, this title is consistently decent and I hope marvel doesn't ruin it any time soon.

    This was the best issue yet, in my opinion. I particularly liked how Paknadel wrote the relationship between Normie and Rascal. As I said in my review of the previous issue, I think his writing is definitely the strongest part of this. Bazaldua's art continues to be solid here, but I do think it could be better. Either way, I'm almost surprised at how much I've been enjoying this series so far.

    A slightly above-average issue. Most of my critique is based on the inner dialogue text boxes. The writing doesn't seem like a child. The text is written more like that of an adult. The writer needs to be more aware of that since it pulled me out of the story. I did like the action and I like that scene where Rascal and Normie are talking inside his head. Normie's answer to everything seems to be yelling at Rascal or ignoring it completely. "I'm not talking to you ever again." This is weird storytelling, as it would be better if it was more of John Conner/Terminator relationship where Normie taught it about the sanctity of life rather than just chastising it.

    Also, I believe Norman in the beginning says "Revolutions eat their own more
