Amazing Spider-Man #23
Issue(s): Amazing Spider-Man #23
Review/plot: Green Goblin tries to take over Lucky Lobo's mob.
He arranges for Lucky to be arrested but faces a setback because the entire gang gets arrested along with their boss. Fredrick "Big Man" Foswell is out of jail and JJ hires him back as a reporter. Betty and Pete have a misunderstanding over a letter from Ned Leeds. Spidey has to call Aunt May to let her know she'll be late so that he doesn't get in trouble like he did last issue. Spidey and Green Goblin have a big fight but it ends inconclusively.
Amazing Spider-Man is a better comic that the others being published at this time because so many subplots are cooking at one time. It makes the comic feel more substantial and also seems more realistic as Spidey has to juggle so many different things going on in his life.
