Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #99 (1985)

This is basically just an issue where The Spot fights Black Cat and Spider-Man.  He’s a new villain, so this is really just a way to show readers what he’s all about.

The art and writing in his issue, and generally across Al Milgrom’s run, is not sophisticated and it hurts the overall quality of what is otherwise not a terrible story—and in fact has some pretty interesting elements.

Also, the Venom storyline is developing as the “costume” has escaped from the Baxter Building and is starting to attack innocent people on the streets of NYC.

Creators: Al Milgrom and Herb Trimpe
Grade: C
