  • TBA

Continuity DevelopmentsEdit

  • It is revealed that Norman Osborn's memories have returned and is still hellbend on killing Peter Parker/Spider-Man as the Green Goblin.


  • This issue is reprinted in Amazing Spider-Man (Fireside).
  • This is the first comic book to be published with the clearance of the white "Comic Book Authority Code" stamp at the upper right. At the time of it's publication, the Code was strict on depicting drug use in comics, and that any works that featured the use of drugs (regardless of context) would be rejected. Since this story dealt with the negative aspects of drug use and depicts people suffering drug over-doses from drug use, the code rejected the story. Stan Lee felt that the story was too good to pass up, and had the story published without Code approval.
