. . . let's just say that if they had a yearbook Sandman is the one going to be voted "Most Likely Not Really Sinister".

Erik Larsen is the artist and his Red/Black Spidey is something to see.


Peter will never grow old. Correct? MJ will never grow old. Actually, nobody in the Spider-Man family will ever age. The stories will go on and on for each now generation. Aunt May has the distinction of being portrayed with a certain age range. Here she looks very old.

Later issues will show her much younger than this.

Unfortunately, Sandman gets turned to glass by Doc Ock.

It's all been fun and games until Doctor Octopus proves he's a real killer
