There’s lot’s of chatter about the Red Goblin. I don’t have time to read new comics but from what I can gather… ASM #795 features the first brief appearance, but some people are saying Osborn + Carnage does not equal Red Goblin. Since issue #795, ASM’s have been selling out here in Toronto but according to this tweet:

… the important book appears to be yesterdays release #798. However, unlike #795, smart stores have doubled their order for #798 so it’s hard to say how this book will perform long term. One store doubled their price, while several others have held most of their copies back, which to me is bad form but I guess that’s just the nature of the band wagon.

Also, yes to FF #2! It’s like we’re soul mates:

Even before the Disney/Fox news, there was speculation that the Skrulls would be the next big event after Thanos and that the Secret Invasion storyline was the road map. I guess we’ll see after the Captain Marvel movie, which is supposed to set the stage. However, the Skrulls are a race, while Thanos is a character. Not sure how or if this would factor into speculating on these books. That is, should the 1st appearance of the Kree be a thing?
