Amazing Spider-Man # 29

Issue: Amazing Spider-Man # 29
Writer: Stan Lee
Artist: Steve Ditko
Publication Date: October 1965

Brief Summary:


http://marvel.wikia.com/Amazing_Spider-Man_29


Commentary:

Our pal Scorpion returns.  Stan describes him as one of the strongest and most dangerous menaces of all time.  I don't think that's quite appropriate.  I mean, dude has a tail.

So, he and Spidey slug it out for the better part of the issue.  Spider-Man hasn't started college yet, so hopefully that's coming within the next issue or two.

Quick Hits:
  • Ned Leeds, Betty Brant's other love interest, returns from Europe
  • Scorpion uses the word "bub"

Favorite Panel:

Spidey defends the innocent, and in the case of Jameson, the largely culpable

Next: Amazing Spider-Man Annual # 2
