Well, I take back what I said before about not getting into these old Lee/Ditko books. This one was great! My concerns were completely misplaced.
In this story Spider-Man has his first run-in with the Vulture, gets his job as a photographer for Jameson (though, at Now Magazine, not at the Bugle), creates a holder for extra web-fluid cartridges, and invented an Anti-Magnetic Inverter! Wow!
