Comics Corner: The Amazing Spider-Man 81


Title: The Amazing Spider-Man
Issue Number: 81
Release Date: February 1970 

  • 1st appearance of Kangaroo / Frank Oliver
Low Points
  • Another generic villain with another silly origin
  • Good old Aunt May and her frail nonsense - Marvel sure knows how to drag out a thin plot line of sickly old woman
  • Without the inclusion of multi-issue story arcs, as mentioned in issue number 79, it leaves too much room for bland stories, such as this one
  • The cops don't cuff Kangaroo for his ride on the train? Why would you ever not detain a prisoner?
