Untold Tales of Spider-Man 008Harry’s Story
Writer: Kurt Busiek
Breakdowns: Pat Olliffe
Finishes: Pam Ecklund & M. Milgrom
Lettering: Richard Starkings
Colors: Steve Mattsson
Originally published: April 1996

This book finally tells us who the Scorcher was working for in Untold #1 – none other than Norman Osborn! Osborn’s working up to becoming the Green Goblin, and I guess he needed those top secret documents for his research.

This issue introduces Harry Osborn, who is basically treated like shit by his father (+1 to bad father list – this should be a drinking game). We also see Spider-Man fighting the Enforcers again, as they’ve escaped the cops after Spidey caught them in ASM #10. The Enforcers are joined by a new villain named the Headsman, who seems pretty cool (although I don’t understand how his power pack relates to his axe).

Something about this issue seemed off to me, and I can’t really figure out what. The art definitely had a slightly different look – I’m not sure if it’s because Ecklund and Milgrom took over from Vey as inkers, or if it’s something else – and the writing seemed less…gripping, I guess. (BTW, the credits list “M. Milgrom” – I can’t find anyone named that, so I’m going to assume this is actually Al Milgrom.)
