Look back at mini-Red Goblin


mini-Red Goblin


Yes. I know that is not his name. That will be a cool name for the grandson of Norman Osborn aka Red Goblin formerly known as Green Goblin.

Spoiler Alert! At the end of Amazing Spider-man 799. Carnage symbiote bonded with Normie Osborn. Norman “Normie” Harold Osborn was born in Amazing Spider-man 263. However, he was not named until issue 265. Normie is the son of Harry and Liz Osborn.


In issue 263 (Writer Tom Defalco and penciller Ron Frenz) was titled “The Spectacular Spider-Kid”. It was about a young kid who idolized Doctor Octopus but wanted to be Spider-man’s sidekick. Also in this issue, Liz had given baby to a healthy boy.

In issue 265 (Writer Tom Defalco and penciller Ron Frenz) was titled “After the Fox”. This is the first appearance of Silver Sable and second appearance of the Black Fox. Harry revealed his son’s name, Norman Harry Osborn.

On April 6, Amazing Spider-Man 263 CGC 9.8 went for $53.51. On April 18, Amazing Spider-man 799 hits newsstand. Afterward, collectors went hunting for issue 263. The prices have went up. On April 30, Amazing Spider-Man 263 CGC 9.8 went for $199.95. That’s huge increases in prices like almost 375%.

I did a blog about this back in May 17. Let’s check the prices now. Seems like the prices of this book has went down. Amazing Spider-Man 263 CGC 9.8 are now selling for $125 to $140 plus shipping for the month of October. 

Amazing Spider-man 265 is also a great issue to have in your collection. For month of May, CGC 9.8 is going for $275. On October 24, Amazing Spider-man CGC 9.8 sold for $279. Prices on this book is pretty steady.  There is a movie being developed by Sony called tentatively “Silver and Black” starring Silver Sable and Black Cat. The movie was supposed to start production in March 2018 but got delayed due to script issues. Now this movie is cancelled. However, Sony is thinking about developing each solo movie.  Buy this book now before it goes up in value.


Will mini-Red Goblin be as popular as Venom and Carnage?
