Tidbit one: Dr. Bong makes a cameo!
You may recognize Dr. Bong as Howard the Duck's ultimate nemesis! WaaAaugh!
Tidbit two: Jackpot?
Okay, I'm seriously afraid for your intelligence (unless you're young) if a Spidey story to you is about Spidey beating up bad guys. Also, the book was "just plain depressing," because Marvel had to deal with the ramifications of their ground-changing events, which they ended up distastefully retconning. The bad moves weren't on the stories, but rather on the need for earth-shattering events to grab everyone's attention.
But I'm not here to complain. I'm here to tell you that Jackpot questions might get answered!
In the Amazing Spider-Man Annual, by Guggenheim and McKone!
I don't know about you, but count me in.
