    The Amazing Spider-Man #284, April 1987. Cover by David Mazzuchelli. Jim Owsley, script; Erik Larsen, pencils; Art Nichols, inks; Rick Parker; letters; Julianna Ferriter, colors; Jim Salicrup, editor; Jim Shooter, editor-in-chief.

    As you can see from the credits, things were a little tumultuous at the time. Jim Owsley talks about it here; and Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz, who remember things differently, talk about it here.

    There are some fascinating anecdotes in these accounts, and the whole story is one the many detours I could have taken in Marvel Comics: The Untold Story had I had more time and space.
