- Ka-Zar saves Spider-Man from quicksand.
- Spider-Man pretty much admits to Ka-Zar that he’s Peter Parker by continuously referring to his love of Gwen Stacy.
- backstory: Kraven came to kill Ka-Zar, found an infant Gog in a crashed spaceship, rescued him and raised him.
- Spidey and Ka-Zar and Zabu rescue Gwen and defeat Kraven.
- Kraven goes flying off a cliff. I wish he stayed dead, I hate Kraven stories. But I’m pretty sure he’s not.
- Spidey traps poor Gog in the quicksand. He basically murders the relatively innocent alien.
- Everyone goes home happy, though without the photos they came for.
This is still a shitty King Kong
rip-off tribute. They refer to Kong a couple times, which just makes it more annoying.
I’m really starting to hate Gil Kane. Check out this terrible panel. That’s supposed to be Peter on the left. He looks like a 50-year-old bloated corpse.
I hated this issue.
