    "Requiem!" Script by Marv Wolfman. Art by Al Milgrom (layouts), Frank Giacoia (finishes), and Jim Mooney (finishes). Cover by Keith Pollard and Al Milgrom. With his world crashing down around him, the wall-crawler rushes to Restwell Nursing Home to see if his dear aunt is indeed dead. Sadly it appears so. A distraught Peter meets with the resident physician on staff, Dr. Ludwig Rinehart, to make final arrangements. The following day after a long talk with Joe Robertson, the web-slinger visits his childhood home in Queens and discovers it a shambles! And then he finally recalls who Dr. Ludwig Rinehart really is! Something is majorly amiss at Restwell Nursing Home! But before Spider-Man can solve the mystery, he must tend to an unscheduled appointment with a rather large NYC crime lord next issue! First appearance of Debra Whitman. Cameo appearances by Anna Watson, Flash Thompson, Sha Shan, Harry Osborn, and the Kingpin. 32 pages. Cover price $0.40.
