The Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 1 167…Stalked by the Spider-Slayer!
Writer: Len Wein
Illustrator: Ross Andru
Embellisher: Mike Esposito
Colorist: Glynis Wein
Letterer: Joe Rosen
Originally published: April 1977

JJJ, Dr. Marla Madison, and their Spectacular Spider-Slayer are back! We’re also introduced to a new super-powered character, Will-o’-the-Wisp. Is he hero? Villain? He robs 30 Rock, but he’s doing it against his will. Hmm…

We finally see Harry’s psychoanalyst, Dr. Barton Hamilton.

The best part of this issue is that Aunt May has become politically active, and is shown marching and protesting for old people’s rights! As MJ says, “Right on, Aunt May! Sock it to ’em kid!”. Another awesome moment comes when Spidey oversteps his welcome with Robbie Robertson, and causes the usually calm and collected city editor to snap at him. It was a really interesting moment.

Also, I totally forgot that JJJ had pictures of Spidey dumping Ben Reilly! Shit! Spidey steals them, but they accidentally end up in the hands of Will.

There was a lot that I loved about this issue!
