Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #121 (1986)

This is an interesting creative effort: Like the brilliant movie Rashomon, this issue tells the same story from three different perspectives, and uses three different artists to do it.

Peter Parker, his girl Mary Jane Watson, and J. Jonah Jameson all recount the story of a bank robbery at “Roshomon Bank and Trust.”  (Nice touch there, Mr. David!)

My favorite version is JJJ’s, above.

Creators: Peter David (script) and three artists: John Buscema, Bob McLeod, and Alan Kupperberg
Grade: B-
