Finishing out the last of the Spider-Man Anniversary issues, I look at Spectacular Spider-Man 189 & 200, which examines Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Harry Osborn (The Green Goblin) & Mary Jane’s relationships to each other, and ultimately leads to Harry Osborns death. Surprisingly, there are many allusions to child and spousal abuse that are really serious that I was surprised Marvel let go through when I read these again.

Murphy’s Media Memories – Spider-Man 30th Anniversary Comics (Part 2) – Spectacular Spider-Man 189 & 200 from Shawn Padraic Murphy on Vimeo.

Spider-Man is celebrating 50 years in comics (well, not Spider-Man, but Doctor Octopus inside Spider-Man’s body is celebrating it), but do you want to know what happened on Spider-Man’s 30th Anniversary? These are 4 different comic books, all are one-shot stories that attempt to get people interested in Spider-Man and his supporting characters, while also producing stories about how Spider-Man’s powers work and showing his origin for new readers. These are the great stories inside the hologram covers of the Spider-Man 30th Anniversary comics.
