There may be spoilers ahead...

Norman Osborn is in prison following his rise as head of world security, boss of H.A.M.M.E.R., the Thunderbolts and his dark Avengers team, then his fall at the end of his coup d'etat and siege of Asgard. The former Green Goblin and Iron Patriot is being held without charge. A senate committee on human rights debates on how best to proceed with his trial but a ballsy senator transfers him from the Raft, the usual place of incarceration for super criminals, to a secret location. Meanwhile, a secret "Goblin Cult" of followers would see Osborn free from his shackles.

Norah Winters of the Daily Bugle is using her investigative journalism talents to good use as she follows a story on "where is he now?" She ends up caught in the middle of a prison riot and Osborn's escape attempts.

I bought this trade paperback as I was intrigued with Osborn after he appeared in Avengers by Brian Michael Bendis - Volume 3 by Brian Michael Bendis (Nov 28 2012) proclaiming to the world's media and the President of the USA about his lack of due process and his illegal imprisonment. Until that point I had only read Siege which details his dark Avengers attack on Asgard and his subsequent downfall.

At the time, I found this story boring and the book ended up gathering dust on a shelf. However, now that I've caught up a bit more on Osborn's rise to power during the Dark Reign era, including the Dark Avengers books, I've re-read this story and found it a much better read and I have a better understanding of why he would have his own cult.

This is still just an ok story though.

Just when you think you can't read another story about Norman Osborn, Kelly Sue Deconnick and Emma Rios breathe life into him. The story's engaging and dark and gritty in the adult way that a lot of comics seem to forget can happen. Deconnick is one of my favorite up-and-coming writers, and Rios' art is beautiful. I never thought I'd love a story about Osborn, but I do love this one.

A sleeper hit and one of the best things Marvel's produced in the last year, five years, whatever. Rios gives us astounding detail, but in powerful, fluid motion. That motion is the difference between a comics artist and just an artist drawing comics. Top talent DeConnick steers the ship, conjuring compelling characters and motivations within Rios's spinning, crawling madhouse, creating monsters who happen to be people too.

Of all 2010's superhero joints, this one provides a combination that you're unlikely to find elsewhere in the genre: fresh ideas, fresh characters, and art that makes you sit up and take notice immediately. Would you necessarily expect this from a mini-series capping the story of the over-exposed villain from Marvel's summer "event"? And yet, here it is.

If you buy Marvel comics and you don't own this one, it's time to fix that. You won't regret it.

The skinny is:

Overall I would give this comic about 2.5 stars out of 5. It wrestles with a lot of big ideas and is more thought-provoking that 98% of superhero comics. However it is too ambitious with all the topics it wants to cover in the limited space it has and therefore some ideas suffer. Osborn: Evil Incarcerated does successfully paint Osborn in a new more morally complex light without departing from the core character feature of him being pure evil. I would recommend this comic to anyone looking for deeper superhero comics with the caveat that some of the ideas will fall flat.
