Amazing Spider-Man #119-120
Issue(s): Amazing Spider-Man #119, Amazing Spider-Man #120
...and getting hit on by a hot French-Canadian secretary, Peter meets the man who wanted to talk to him, but he gets assassinated before he can say anything. It's possible that this relates to the fact that Peter was being tailed by one of Dr. Octopus' goons.
Also, it seems my Marvel Tales reprints have been holding out on me because it turns out that Harry has suffered a nervous breakdown and passed out in issue #118, but you wouldn't know it from my copy. In this issue Peter hears from Gwen that Harry is back on the drugs.
At least this issue (the reprint in Amazing Spider-Man annual #12) has a John Byrne cover (with a blurb that says "The classic confrontation between Marvel's two TV SENSATIONS retold!").
I thought this panel looked odd, as if Kane had trouble fitting the Hulk within its dimensions.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Takes place after Hulk #162, while the Hulk is in Canada. Also takes place after Marvel Team-Up #9-11, per a footnote in that arc.
Continuity Insert? N

Gil Kane drew #120, and that issue may contain Paul Reinman's last Marvel contribution.

The Grand Comics Database also credits Reinman with a role in Romita's fill-in issue, Spidey 132 (early 1974)

The lawyer seems to be a victim of Gerry Conway's memory lapses: here he's Jean-Pierre Rimbaud, later he's called Albert Rimbaud, and still later referred to as Arthur Rimbaud.

Actually, it's the law family of Rimbaud, Rimbaud, & Rimbaud. ;)
