Script: Stan Lee
Art: Steve Ditko
Lettering: Johnny Dee
Originally published: March 1963

This is Spider-Man’s first appearance in his own book. Reading this makes me appreciate the effort that went into all those other issues I just read that are set between AF 15 and this; there was a nice attention to detail that paid off in setting this story up and filling in the blanks.

Peter and Aunt May are still having money troubles, and Peter is desperate to try to fix them. Unfortunately, he’s finding it rather difficult to do so, both as Peter Parker and as Spider-Man. Matters are made worse by a scathing editorial by J. Jonah Jameson, but Peter doesn’t let this come in the way of his duty: when trouble strikes JJJ’s son John, Spider-Man puts his own neck on the line to save John. Unfortunately, this somehow only serves to further infuriate the elder Jameson, and Spider-Man is left stuck with few prospects in a city screaming for his skin. What will befall Spider-Man? Only time, as Lee reminds us, will tell.
