A “giant-sized” 30th anniversary issue with a hologram cover, and it goes back to Spider-Man’s roots.
Mysterio is tracked down by the guy who was Spider-Man’s wrestling agent (before Uncle Ben died). The agent has been despondent ever since he lost Spidey as a client, and he wants Mysterio to conjure illusions to make Spidey believe he’s still in the agent’s employ.
Spidey figures it out quickly, there’s a confrontation.
And we get Venom-Galactus.
But instead of eating planets, this one wants to eat…
Mary Jane. And seriously, she’s an amazing woman. Who can blame him?
I didn’t really understand the story, frankly. But it’s a one-and-done designed to track back to Spider-Man’s origin as part of the celebration of the character.
In the grand tradition of the old Lee/Ditko issues, he leaves Mysterio webbed up on a lamppost.
The backcover is a 3-page fold-out picture of Spider-Man and Spidey 2099.
That’s a Rick Leonardi joint.
