Synopsis: Marvel Tales #113 reprints Amazing Spider-Man #136 (September 1974).  A blissful Sunday afternoon with Mary Jane Watson comes to a shocking end when the couple returns to Peter Parker’s apartment. A bomb detonates when the lock is opened, destroying the apartment and knocking Mary Jane unconscious! Concluding that this attack must be the work of the Green Goblin, Peter changes into his Spider-Man costume and searches an old warehouse that Norman Osborn previously used as a hideout.  After waiting for hours, Spider-Man’s patience is rewarded as the Green Goblin makes an appearance on his glider. The two fight to a standstill and Green Goblin stops short of a killing blow when his glove blaster runs out of power. The villain flies off, promising revenge by either killing the hero or revealing his secret identity. The issue ends with Peter Parker clearly shocked by the realization that his friend and roommate Harry Osborn must now be the Green Goblin. Among other highlights, this issue is notable for Ross Andru’s art, particularly the gorgeous rendering of Mary Jane on the opening splash page and the striking double-page spread of the Green Goblin on his Bat Glider.
