    "Man-Hunt!" Part 1 of 2. Guest-starring the Punisher. Script by Marv Wolfman. Art by Keith Pollard (layouts) and Jim Mooney (finishes). Cover by John Romita and Bob McLeod. The action starts with a bang as the web-slinger catches a man falling out of a high-rise office building! When Spider-Man swings inside to investigate, he discovers the source of the problem: the Punisher! What has Frank Castle been up to since Spidey last saw him (in Amazing Spider-Man 175)? Oh, just business as usual...terrorizing the underworld! The following day to his surprise, the Punisher sees pictures of his penthouse gun battle in the Daily Globe! Credited to a photographer named Peter Parker! This troubles the Punisher! And that means trouble for Aunt May's nephew! War Journal Entry #519 is coming up next at a particular superhero's Chelsea apartment! Appearances by J. Jonah Jameson, Joe Robertson, Dr. Marla Madison, Aunt May, and Mary Jane Watson. (Notes: The Punisher previously appeared in Captain America 241. Mary Jane appears next in the classic Marvel Team-Up 79 where (as Red Sonja) she battles Kulan Gath alongside the web-slinger. This is one of Mary Jane's very few appearances between 1979 and 1983. She returns to the Amazing Spider-Man title in issue 238. This story was reprinted in Marvel Tales 218.) Cover price $0.40.
