Spectacular Spider-Man #146-148 and Web of Spider-Man #47-48 (1989): Inferno


These Inferno cross-over issues are, interestingly enough, pretty much stand-alones.  Bunch of done-in-one tie-ins to Inferno, with a lizard fight thrown in.  And a zombie sequence.

In issue #148, Betty Brant’s dead husband, Ned Leeds, appears to have returned from the dead as a zombie, as the machinations of the Inferno demons.  Not consequential, but a decent tale.

The only significant aspect of these issues is that Harry is turning Goblin again, and at the same time the new Hobgoblin is upping his presence.

In fact, he becomes an actual demon.

Looks like a Goblin battle is starting.

Also, Kingpin punches a demon in the face.

Nice.

And Eduardo Lobo is still circling Gloria Grant.
