Wherein Spidey gets his Joker, his Luthor, his Red Skull. Every hero needs an arch-villain, someone to completely define the hero's theme, struggle, and style -- and, boy howdy, is the Green Goblin one of the all-time greats. The identity and backstory of this compelling nemesis tie neatly into the Spider-Man story's themes of loss, tragedy, the tricky drama of dealing with friends and family, and the simple day-to-day difficulties of life. One of the most important and beloved of all Marvel keys.
There is no 9.8 copy of this book, making this tied for highest-graded. One of Ditko's best-known covers, here presented in a nearly perfect copy, blinding colors, sharp corners -- simply the best.
