doctor octopus meets aunt may

The first time Otto Octavius met Aunt May, it was to rent a room.

Later, of course, she’d move in with him as a maid.  Eventually, he’d try to marry the cougar.

Also in these issues: The first appearance of Captain Stacy, beginning one of the most complex relationships in comics.  Batman and Commissioner Gordon, at the time, were basically sources/working buddies.  But in Spider-Man, Peter dates Gwen, Spidey works with Gwen’s father, Peter has to constantly wonder if either/both his gal and his pal are hip to his secrets…

Very good stuff.  No wonder people hail these issues as some of the best comics of the silver age.

Creators: Stan Lee, John Buscema
