Is The Red Goblin in Today’s Amazing Spider-Man #798 or Not? (SPOILERS)

Posted by April 4, 2018 Comment

So, it’s the big question some people want to know in advance. After months and months of teasing, is the Red Goblin in Amazing Spider-Man #798 or not? And if so, is it just an end of issue cameo with the full proper appearance in #799? Or even #800? And is it really Norman Osborn in the Carnage symbiote, or is it some bait and switch?

After all, a lot seems to be riding on it in the aftermarket, with copies selling on eBay in advance for two-to-three-to-four times the cover price. Will that go up… or down?

First things first. Questions asked and answered.

Is the Red Goblin in Amazing Spider-Man #798? Yes, yes he is. Here, have a look.

And a Spidey swear as well. Makes it even more special.

Is it just an end of issue cameo with the full proper appearance in #799? Or even #800? No. Don’t think that’s some end of page splash…. that’s halfway through the issue. So exactly what this Red Goblin, Norman Osborne in the Carnage symbiote suit can do – you’ve got a whole half an issue more to find out.

Is it a bait and switch? Nope, that’s Normie and Carnie, together at last.
