Story Details

  Amazing Spider-Girl #26 (Story 2)
Summary: Spider-Man Reference, Li'l Benjy Parker appears
Editor: Tom Brennan
Writer: Tom DeFalco
Artist: Colleen Coover

While Mary Jane Parker trims the tree, Benjy is on a "play date" with his friend Shelly. The two converse in baby talk. Benjy is confused by his mother's excitement, and Shelly tells him it's because of "Fat Day." According to her, Fat Day is when a fat man drops down the chimney, taking people's money (at least, to hear the parents complain about it) and leaving "a bunch of stupid clothes behind." Determined to stop the Fat Man, Benjy realizes his older sister has something he can use.

Which is how MJ comes back into the room to find that the fireplace has been blocked by an enormous web ball.

General Comments

Cute stuff. And you've got to figure that some sort of mishaps with Benjy and May's Spider-Girl equipment would be inevitable. It's worth a chuckle, if nothing else.

Overall Rating

Kids do the darndest things. Three webs.
