  The Tinkerer's alien sub-plot introduction was so bad that it takes them over a decade to try to bring him back again.

  This is the first time I noticed any resemblance to a DC super hero. Spider-Man, particularly in the first story, reminds me of a combination of Super Man and Batman, In form and in function respectively. The second story was pretty good as well, giving us a little more insight into what makes Spider-Man a unique super hero.

  -This is a sh*tty anthology story under the guise of a Spidey book--Ugh! You're right, Pete--Never mention this story to anyone.

  One comic. One Spider-man. Two olda**men for villains.

  Has Stan had a super hero yet who hasn't battled aliens by the end of their second issue?

  Huge spidey fan but always disliked the tinkerer.

  • Oh… an alien story! But as alien stories go, this one is actually not too bad. They finally designed a species that looks like they mean business. And their plan is not completely stupid. So alien indeed, but the best in that genre so far.

  • Yay! More graphics! I love this one on the Web-Shooter. It reminded me how much I wanted one when I was a kid!

  • Good continuity with previous story where Peter decides to carry more web-fluid.

  Ok story. First Spiderman story I didn't care for.

  1. Wait, is his name Flash, or Moose? Maybe Peter was just being insulting before. Or maybe Flash has a twin brother?
2. …How, exactly, do you force air out through air holes? That bit makes no sense.
3. Aliens again? Seriously? Just how many alien species are trying to invade Earth, anyway? Is there a nexus nearby or something?

Definitely the worst Spider-Man story so far. But considering how good the other stories have been, that's still better than most other Marvel comics up to this point.

  Omg, so right off the bat, I have a problem with this one. Why would an electronics expert ask to be recommended a high school student to help him? College, I would understand. Okay, maybe I should just shut up, suspend my disbelief, and just enjoy the fricken comic. We'll see.

A half decent alien story that, as we later learn, maybe wasn't an alien story? Hmm, interesting subtle backdoor origin of a rather Mysterio-s character

  Not too keen on this one, just a generic alien filler story.

  I can almost hear the scratch of the erasers as Mr. Lee and Mr. Ditko rub out "Commies" and write/draw "aliens" in their place.

  I love that the "alien" gets mentioned in the character appearances. Sneaky debut
