What gave it away? I guess I'm not as subtle and clever as I used to be.

Off the top of my head - my favorite Norman Stories are (in no particular order):
Peter Parker #75 (Revelations Part 4 - Norman's return at the end of the Clone Saga)
Spectacular Spider-Man #250 (Citizen Osborn - Norman returns in his civilian identity and buys half of the Bugle)
Spectacular Spider-Man #261-263 (Goblins at the Gate - I think those are the issues - has some problems and is something of a letdown - but it's Osborn meets Kingsley and still has a lot of good moments)
Peter Parker #44-47 (Death in the Family - I think those are the issues - Norman tries to commit Suicide by Spider-Man - If I were rich I'd pay Mike Deodato to redraw the thing)
Thunderbolts #116-121 (Caged Angels - psychic supervillains drive the Thunderbolts mad - and Norman goes on one of his greatest rants)
Amazing Spider-Man #595-599 (American Son - Norman tries to turn Harry into a superhero - the story has a lot
of problems which preclude it from being a great story - but Norman shooting Spidey in the face, and then his rambling about how he's going to kill all his loved ones and let them know that they are dying because it's Spidey's fault is Norman Gold)
There's got to be a Dark Avengers arc in there somewhere, but I'd have to re-read the series. The putting the team together at the beginning is fun, but the scene in the next to last issue when Bullseye murders the Sentry's wife on Norman's orders is terrific.
And if you're putting a book together, you have to have:
Amazing Spider-Man #38-39 - (Norman and Peter learn each other's secret identities)
Amazing Spider-Man #96-98 - (The infamous Drug Issues)
Amazing Spider-Man #121-122 - ( No explanation needed)

Probably Roger Stern's first HobGoblin story arc interspersed between Amazing Spider-Man #238-251. Watching Kingsley (although we don't yet know it's him) put his plans in motion is great stuff.
