The story that put Peter David on the map, and one of the greatest Spider-Man stories of all time.
Mark Gruenwald: Two issues, two new creations (Madcap and Armadillo). True, they never really caught on like a Lee/Kirby creation, but it’s pretty impressive for a new guy to try twice in a row.
Written by Craig Anderson, who wrote only one other comic book (as far as I know) and drawn by Keith Cockrum’s wife (who must have known that’s why she got the job, and therefore was too embarassed to have her last name listed in the credits). When Marvel goes for a filler issue, they don’t kid around.
