The original "Lo, This Monster" story featured in the black and whilte 35 cent 64 page first issue of this "Spectacular Spider-Man Magazine" title. But it was retold shortly after in three parts starting with Amazing Spider-Man #116.

We give a full review of the story and compare the original version with the extended and modified reworking. Yes, I know it's usual to tell the story in the original and not the reprint, but trust us, it works better this way. Just click on through to Amazing Spider-Man #116 and check out the details.
