Frank Miller does a guest artist spot in #25, in which Spidey goes blind. But he’s inked by Frank Springer. I posted on this once before: Klaus Janson inking makes a huge difference. Check out my prior post here.
It’s a solid issue. And during these issues we also get the Carrion story–he’s a Jackal clone.
None of these are bad. In fact, Mantlo’s stories are improving quite a bit. Meanwhile, the quality of Amazing Spider-Man is deteriorating. I grouped these issues together not because they suck, but because they’re just kinda bland. Perfectly good reading, but nothing that sticks with you.
