There is much speculation that this will have the first full appearance of the Red Goblin, the new character created as a merger of Norman Osborne and Carnage who has a serious issue with Spider-Man for all sorts of reasons. I'm off to pick up a copy (if I can) from Orbital Comics in London right now, along with the rest of this week's stash. If anyone wants to say hi, I'll probably be in the Breakfast Club afterwards kidding myself that their smoothies are actually healthy.

One place the character does appear is on the Clayton Crain cover to ComicXposure's exclusive retailer variant, which they sold for $30 or $45 for the virgin cover version but have sold copies on eBay for up to $1oo each.

I know, what can I say, people have Goblin fever.

Okay, the bus is coming, I'll see what they have in store when I get there.
