    SPIDEY SUPER STORIES #9 (June 1975)
    Art by Win Mortimer & Mike Esposito
    Words by Jean Thomas

    A couple of fun facts. The first, this story was based on an Electric Company script written by Joss Whedon’s dad, Tom Whedon. The second, flag pins were approximately 40% larger back then. 

    Hope everyone is having a great Easter!

    At the New York Creation Con in 1971, Gerry Conway promised an upcoming Sub-Mariner story in which the hero “meets up with a New Orleans hooker, goes into a New Orleans cathouse, and does the whole routine with the pimp there. We felt that that was a little strong, so we changed that into something that’s cleaner … they’re all drug addicts now. The Comics Code accepted that.”
