Amazing Spider-Man #143 (1975): 1st Cyclone

Peter and MJ have their first big kiss.  I thought Conway handled that really well, and extra kudos to the editors who decided not to put little captions on the bottom of the page to sell other Marvel titles.  I love those little words-and I miss them, even-but sometimes it’s best not to clutter the bottom panels with ads.

Also: Peter goes to France where Spidey fights The Cyclone.  As a villain, he seems to be an excuse for Ross Andru to use scribble scrabble and save time.  Whirlwind is much better.

Creators: Gerry Conway and Ross Andru
Grade: C
