JR takes us back to November 1968 for this episode of Spider-History. During this month Amazing Spider-Man #66 came out. Also the Spectacular Spider-Man magazine #2 came out.

As if that was not enough, it also holds a special place in JRs heart, as it sealed his life-long love for the character with him.

I had a chance to visit the Wizard World Tulsa Comic Con and interview one of my heroes. Jim Shooter was the Editor in Chief of Marvel Comics during the 1970s and 1980s. He also wrote Secret Wars and helped usher in a great era of comics. He also shares a fun Steve Ditko story.
