The Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows
“The Curse of The Green Goblin Pt 1”
The Green Goblin returns in The Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows “The Curse of the Green Goblin” Part 1. Spiderling is captured after trying to take on the Rhino, and Spider-Man with his wife, Spinneret, who is still wearing the symbiote, are tearing up the city looking for her.
Normie Osborne laments over his father’s death and blames Spider-Man, the so-called superhero, who couldn’t even save his best friend. Normie’s mother, Liz has also been absent from his life, even missing his birthday in the previous issue. Renew Your Vows has been building up to this moment since the beginning. Earlier issues have shown Normie’s interest in collecting Regent tech. Normie admitted to taking small doses of Goblin serum in issue 10, which has enhanced his intelligence.
Annie comes from a loving family which contrasts Normie’s lonely upbringing. Spider-Man rips apart a bar trying to find where his daughter is, and Liz is confronted with accusations of her child abandonment. Ryan Stegman does an excellent job of telling this empathetic story.
Brian Level doesn’t quite display the level of energy Stegman did while drawing the earlier issues, but he holds his own. The art gave me a 90’s vibe. Colorist Jesus Aburtov’s use of yellow bounce light on Spider-Man may have helped with that vibe.
In all, The Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #11 promises to kick off a heart-wrenching story between the daughter with a loving family and a lonely son with a cursed legacy.
