Marvel Fanfare #42 (Spider-Man)
Issue(s): Marvel Fanfare #42 (Spider-Man story only)
Spidey must be gaining weight, because he keeps splitting his pants both in and out of costume.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: Spider-Man has money troubles and is wearing his black costume. Betty Brant is relatively sane and happy (although she's nearly unrecognizable). The MCP places this between Amazing Spider-Man #282 and Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #119. The Captain Marvel back-up story has been placed in a separate entry.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Dont think this issue fits here. Spidey is supposed to have a concussion from the Rhino fight that carries on to the next issue of PPSSM

In PPSSM #119, when we see Spidey having a reaction to the concussion he got from Rhino, it's said that the fight with Rhino in ASM #280-282 happened "the other night", which means that more than a day has passed. And as i noted in the M/FAN #31-32 entry, the timing is very tight for X-Factor, so that story has to take place soon after the ASM issues. The MCP places both this issue and M/FAN #31-32 between ASM #280-282 and PPSSM #119, and i think that works ok. Spider-Man ignoring and not treating his concussion can be exactly why he has the attack at the beginning of PPSSM #119. There's no proof that he doesn't have a concussion in these issues. :-) Peter actually has a really bad track record when it comes to taking care of himself.

Fair enough. I just don't see why it has to be here. It would make more sense before or after the concussion.
Just trying to help.

And it's always appreciated, and i definitely agree that this issue doesn't have to be here (M/FAN #31-32 is more tricky). But once i've settled on placement for a year, and especially if i'm following the MCP, it usually takes an argument that something can't fit in order for me to move it.

Gotcha. I'll try harder next time.
