The End of Spider-Man!
Written by: Stan Lee
Illustrated by: Steve Ditko
Lettered by: Sam Rosen
Originally published: November 1964
I tell ya, I may not be the biggest Ditko fan, but there’s two things he does really well: close-ups and covers. I love the cover for this issue, I think it looks really fantastic.
This is the kinda shit I like, a completely character-driven issue. Spider-Man didn’t fight once! He just moped about feeling sorry for himself and making everything worse. My only complaint is that a lot of parts seemed pretty repetitive, like Lee was having trouble filling the space without a lot of action sequences.
