Lan Medina draws a hell of a Norman Osborn. He’s got the trademark wavy hair look down. But he also injects just the right amount of age in the character’s face. He is supposed to be a grandfather, after all.
Perhaps not surprisingly, this story is overplaying the Gwen Stacy card as it relates to Norman’s guilt over his Green Goblin days. At certain points it felt like I was reading a story called Gold Goblin & Gwen. I mean, we get it. She’s dead. No need to hammer that in.
