Amazing Spider-Man (1963 Marvel ) Annual #13 VF
"The Arms of Doctor Octopus" Part 1 of 2. Script by Marv Wolfman. Pencils by John Byrne. Inks by Terry Austin. (Brilliant art that rivals their work on the Uncanny X-Men series during the same time period). Cover by Keith Pollard and Bob McLeod. It's an off-beat tale as a (presumed dead) government agent helps the web-slinger track down his long-time foe: Doctor Octopus! The wall-crawler doesn't know exactly what Otto Octavius is planning, but he knows that the six-armed super-villain must be stopped! At a construction site in the Bowery, the Amazing Spider-Man and Doc Ock wage war again! And if Spidey has to rip off Dr. Octopus' arms to beat him...he will! Story continues in Spectacular Spider-Man Annual 1. Second feature: "A Gallery of Spider-Man's Most Famous Foes!" Script by Marv Wolfman. Art by Keith Pollard and Frank Giacoia. 8 pages of pin-ups featuring the Molten Man, Looter, Rhino, Shocker, Kingpin, Silvermane, Man-Mountain Marko, Prowler; and the Kangaroo.
