“Ordeals!” Part 1 of 2.

Last issue Peter Parker made the very tough decision to drop out of graduate school. At this point Aunt May doesn’t know that he did. When she finds out…she won’t be happy. Meanwhile the burglaries at the Osborn facilities continue! Fortunately on the eastside docks the web-slinger catches one in progress! Can Spider-Man corral the Hobgoblin this time? Cameo appearances by the Black Cat, Mary Jane Watson, Harry & Liz Osborn, and Dr. Morris Sloan. (Note: This two-part story was reprinted in the 1992 trade paperback: The Origin of the Hobgoblin; and the 2011 trade paperback also titled: The Origin of the Hobgoblin.)
