I don’t remember much about this issue except that it was “Assistant Editors’ Month” at Marvel. Most A.E.s chose to do something wacky, like sending Wolverine to the moon, or bringing in Howard the Duck as a guest star. But over at Amazing Spider-Man, they chose to do something better. I’m not sure how I got ahold of this book, but it’s one of my favorites ever, and it’s held in high regard by anyone who’s read it.
Here’s a summary I found.
In the story, we see Spider-Man pay a visit to 9-year-old Timothy Harrison, the world?s biggest Spider-Man fan. Spidey tells Timothy all about his powers and adventures, and more. Much more. Easily the most poignant and touching Spider-Man story ever published. If you can?t find this collection, go ahead and track down the back issue. It?ll be worth the effort.
