Written by: Stan Lee

This was ok. I don’t think I’m a big vulture fan, and the vast majority of this book was just fight scenes, which also aren’t my favourite. Overall I wasn’t really feeling Ditko’s art either, but there were a few standout closeups: the Anti-Magnetic Inverter on page 2, the web shooters on page 4, and the Vulture in the first panel of page 12.
Peter seemed really out of character at the end. All of a sudden he turned into a smooth operator, hitting on Betty. It was pretty funny, though, so whatever.
