    IMPORTANT: Issue 238B DOES NOT come with Lakeside Skin Tattooz (insert may be present, but tattoo is missing either way). First appearance of the Hobgoblin in "Shadow of Evils Past!" Script by Roger Stern. Art by John Romita Jr. (breakdowns) and John Romita Sr. (finishes). Cover by John Romita Jr. and John Romita Sr. One of the landmark issues of the Amazing Spider-Man! And the beginning of the long secret identity mystery of the Hobgoblin! After escaping from the web-slinger, a bank robber stumbles upon an underground hideout of the (deceased) Green Goblin! Not knowing what to do with his discovery, the small-time hood shows the secret lair to an underworld associate! Unfortunately for the wondrous wall-crawler, the devious associate knows exactly what to do: resurrect the Green Goblin...with a twist! And a short time later a new super-villain is born! The Hobgoblin! Cameo appearance by Mary Jane Watson. Flashback cameo by Norman Osborn (aka the Green Goblin). (Notes: The secret identity of the original Hobgoblin takes many twists and turns over the next decade. Who actually operates as the Hobgoblin in this issue is revealed in the Spider-Man: Hobgoblin Lives (1997) Limited Series (written by Roger Stern). This issue was reprinted in Marvel Tales 257 and also in the 1992 trade paperback: the Amazing Spider-Man -- Origin of the Hobgoblin.) 32 pages. Cover price $0.60.
