The Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 1 025Captured by J. Jonah Jameson!
Script by: Stan Lee
Plot and drawings by: Steve Ditko
Lettering by: S. Rosen
Originally published: June 1965

I really dug this issue, too. Peter convinces J. Jonah Jameson to hear out an inventor (Spencer Smythe) who can stop Spider-Man. It turns out this dude has a robot that JJJ ends up controlling, and it’s actually super hard for Spidey to beat. (It’s not called a Spider-Slayer by name here, but I’m pretty sure it’s the first incarnation of the Spider-Slayer robots that show up periodically.) The story actually doesn’t sound all that special, but it was really well-written and there were a few panels where I loved Ditko’s art. I think this is one of his last issues; I’m curious to see how things go down when he leaves.

MJ finally makes an appearance in this issue (though she was already in Untold Tales) in a couple really funny panels where her face is hidden. Also, Aunt May finds Peter’s Spider-Man costume and confiscates it! Oh noes!
