    Red Goblin #6 is the setup towards an arc of growth for Normie, as he comes to understand exactly how and his demons affect those around him, especially Rascal. While it may not be the most exciting issue of this series so far in terms of massive developments, it lays the groundwork for well for heights that could possibly reach higher than the books stellar first arc.

    Honestly, I am enjoying this. Way better than the current ASM run. I wish I could give it an 8.25 though as this felt like it had moments of weakness. I dont mind it, but there is a lot of Normie contemplating if he is a monster or not and we get him losing control this issue. This series is an interest world building series about symbiotes and the Goblin crews. I do enjoy this evolving relationship with Normie and Rascal. It is highly fraught and feels like one step forward, one back sort of thing. Which makes a lot of sense since both are functionally children.

    The last issue was the weakest issue in the series so far, but it did do one good thing by introducing a destabilizing factor which sort of triggers this new 'arc' if y more

    While the cover to this issue is awesome, what we got inside is just solid, much like the rest of the series. The story continues to be fairly entertaining, although one of my main gripes with this book comes from the way Normie talks in his inner monologue. Of course, the premise of this entire book isn't realistic, but I just don't buy a child like Normie would use the words he uses in his inner monologue. Maybe he's just smarter than other kids, but it just doesn't feel like a child speaking whenever I read this. Either way, I still enjoyed what we got here.

    Normie has to overcome the urge for violence and connect with Rescal on a different level. Meanwhile, Rascal trying to protect Normie makes that more difficult. The goblins's leader is literally disintergrating and looks to his female right hand to take over. I'm enjoying this, but I just wish the writer wouldn't use vocaulbary that 10 year old would never use. It takes me out of the story.
