ALL KINDS OF PILLS TO GIVE US ALL KINDS OF THRILLS

This feature is where we examine the first cover appearance of various comic book characters.

This week, it is the Spider-Man supporting cast!!

Flash Thompson is the first one to grace the cover…


Next comes that cigar-chompin’, Spidey-hatin’ J. Jonah Jameson…


Interestingly enough, Mary Jane is the first of Spider-Man’s loves to make a cover appearance…


Then, later that year, in one fell swoop, the rest of the supporting cast fell, with one single Annual cover!!

Aunt May, Gwen, Harry, Robbie, Captain Stacy – all in one cover!!


And as my pal Michael notes, humorously enough, the cover doesn’t feature Spider-Man’s parents, and that was what that Annual was ABOUT!

COVER THEME GAME

As always, here is the game. I show three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, locale, creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” etc.

In addition, please note that you must have some familiarity with comic book history to correctly guess these comics. You cannot guess the connective theme just by looking at the covers solely, you must have some knowledge beyond just the covers.

A cool point to the first person to figure it out!

Good luck!

Remember, only one cover per commenter!

Good luck!
