    Written by Roger Stern. Art by John Romita Sr. Cover by John Romita Sr; John Romita Jr. From the shadow of evil past comes a terrifying new foe! When a bank robber flees from Spider-Man and disappears into the sewers, he finds the long-hidden secret hideout of the wall-crawler's one-time arch-enemy: the Green Goblin! Norman Osborn's secrets could be worth more than the contents of any bank vault - and soon, a shadowy figure takes possession of the costume, the weapons and, of course, the jet-glider! But this mystery menace can't resist putting his own horrific spin on the pernicious persona. The Green Goblin is no more - in his place now stands the Hobgoblin! And so begins one of the most acclaimed Spidey epics of all, courtesy of writer Roger Stern and legendary father-and-son artistic team of John Romita Sr. and John Romita Jr.! It's one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all! 32 pages, full color. Rated T Cover price $3.99.
