Originally published: July 1978

I read this issue last night before bed and today I had absolutely no recollection of the plot. Even after looking at the cover, I was pretty confused. My main, overall impression was that it was weird. I remember thinking that it read like one of the Hostess ads; I kept expecting to throw Twinkies at the villain.

Eventually the story came back to me a bit — Captain America has been poisoned and the Falcon is trying to get an antidote for him. Spidey’s role is very much a supporting one.

This was really bad, but for some reason it had a surreal quality that I really enjoyed.

BWT, who the heck are Bill Kunkel and Dave Wenzel? Where did they come from? I wonder if they’ll be on this book for awhile, or if this is just a blip. ALSO, who the hell is this Plantman guy? Why do he and Spider-Man seem to have a relationship or at least prior acquaintance?
