Amazing Spider-Man Vol.1 #654


One of the most pivotal moments of the SPIDER-MAN 'BIG TIME' era happens here. Other comics promise you their issues will 'Change Everything' or that 'Nothing Will Ever Be The Same.' No carnival barker-like pitch this time. Just the plain, simple truth: This issue of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN will have repercussions for Peter Parker and this title's cast for years and years to come.
