A week might be a long time in politics but, judging by Marvel's output of April 1973, forty years isn't a long time in comics. Can it really be four decades since these tales first entered our lives?

It's a case of, "Rargh! Hulk smash puny spider!" And other such witty badinage, as Spidey's Canadian adventure begins.
Magneto shows up in a tale I've never found overly involving.
I had a copy of this up until a couple of years ago but don't recall anything that happened in it.

Judging by the cover, I have a feeling it might not be but have no idea which story it is if it isn't.
