Amazing Spider-Man #134-135
Issue(s): Amazing Spider-Man #134, Amazing Spider-Man #135
In another unbelievable preservation of his secret identity, Peter somehow manages to change into Spider-Man. The Punisher shows up as well...
...and after an initial misunderstanding the two take out the bad guys.
Harry finds Peter's costume. We've gone beyond build-up and into the "get on with it already" category for Harry's sub-plot.

The cover to #135 underwent a weird alteration later, but I can't remember the details.

Spam! as a sound effect? That's right up there with Peter David's Raka-vlaam!

Looking back, I really like the slow build for the Harry-Peter grudge match. I'm sure it was frustrating at the time, but it's certainly a great way to hook readers. Sub-plots like this also really helped Amazing stand out.

As a schoolboy I had a notebook that featured the cover to #135 on the front. Just one of a plethora of items featuring Marvel characters I should have saved, like my Marvel Super Heroes lunchbox. Ah, the joys of hindsight.
