SPIDER-MAN #26 (1992)

A hologram cover!  A gatefold poster!

As far as 30th anniversary issues go, it’s nice to see a retelling of Spider-Man’s origin by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz, who managed the character through what may have been Marvel’s best period, the mid-’80s, and a story that has him going through events similar to the ones that led to his uncle’s death.

As he once again has to let a petty thief escape, only this time instead of doing it because he doesn’t care, Spidey has more important folks to save.

There’s also a cute-but-stupid Mary Jane back-up story where she pillow-fights and tickles Peter Parker, also written by DeFalco but with Mark Bagley on art.

And mansplains his spider senses.
