Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 1 040The Terrible Turnabout!
Writer: Bill Mantlo
Artist: Frank Springer
Inker: Ricardo Villamonte
Colors: B. Sean
Letters: D. Albers
Originally published: March 1980

Now this is an issue! This Spider-Lizard business was fantastic! Sweet, sweet art by Sprinter and Villamonte brought Mantlo’s engaging story to the next level. Why can’t Mantlo write like this all the time? My only complaint — and it’s a small one — is that when Spidey reverted back to a man, and his mask was torn, it was kind of a cop-out for Connors not to see his real face. I think it would have been a really interesting turn for their characters if Dr. Connors learned Pete’s true identity. Anyway, that’s not important. The issue completely lived up to its title, and was truly Spectacular.
