This week, we are delighted to find Maoist politics smuggled into the Tarantula’s origin story, of all places (as narrated by The Punisher, in his second full appearance). Then, a Gestalt Green Goblin (far more than the sum of what’s left of Harry Osborn’s mind) lights the fuse that writes finis to Peter Parker’s swingin’ Silver Age pad. Worst roommate breakup ever!
Bonus: Stan’s Soapbox sales pitch re: our hero’s imminent Electric Company gig prompts your hosts to wax nostalgic about all the YA lit they read instead of Spidey Super Stories comics.
