ALBO ORIGINALE DEL 1975
Repetita iuvant , o mica sarà che pure un pò annoiano ? Fatto sta che questa storia speciale di Lo il mostro / Lo this monster uscita qualche anno addietro sull’ effimero Spectacular Spider-Man Magazine (in italia sui nn. 59 e 60 di questa serie) a Gerry Conway gli doveva essere piaciuta un sacco (la tesi B sostiene invece che fosse un pò a corto di idee) tanto che decide di mettersi di buona lena e riadattarne pretestuosamente i dialoghi per riproporla lievissimamente riveduta (e corretta?) occupando ben 3 numeri della serie regolare, e creando tra l’ altro il solito immancabile paradosso in quanto il bieco, corrotto e avido di potere Raleigh nel frattempo era già morto, ma poi in fondo non bisogna mica prendere tutto per oro colato nè troppo sul serio,…..that’s all folks (che tradotto dal tedesco vuol dire: sono tutte minchiate) !

- Smasher (First appearance) (see notes)
- Richard Raleigh (First appearance) (see notes)
While web-slinging through the city, Spider-Man pauses to remark on a
large campaign sign for mayoral candidate Richard Raleigh. Suddenly the
sign is smashed by a gigantic man appropriately named the Smasher, who
apparently has a vendetta against the mayor. Spider-Man battles the
Smasher, but is forced to leave the fight when the two men putting up
the campaign for Raleigh are endangered. After saving the men,
Spider-Man departs, concerning himself with other problems: Like
retrieving his real mask from J. Jonah Jameson.
Web-Slinging to the Bugle, Spider-Man interrupts a meeting
between Jonah and Joe Robertson (who is airing his suspicions of
Raleigh), Spider-Man manages to retrieve his mask, despite the protests
from Jameson. Safely away from prying eyes, Spider-Man ditches his
temporary mask (stolen from a costume shop) and replaces it with his
original. He then decides to go back to the Bugle as Peter Parker to
sell his photos of his battle against Dr. Octopus and Hammerhead. On his
way there, he’s stopped by Harry Osborn and Mary Jane, MJ gives Peter a
support button for Raleigh. When Peter tries to sell his pictures to
Jameson, news of Spider-Man’s battle against the Smasher has hit, and
Jameson is not interested in buying pictures of “hasbeens” like
After a press conference where Raleigh pushes his “tough on
crime” image, he’s later confronted by a crime boss, who he lashes out
at and warns that organized crime will be crushed by him. Later, Peter
changes back to Spider-Man and web-slings across the city to meet up
with Gwen for a date, but can’t help but keep an eye out for the
Meeting up with Gwen, Gwen feels bad for Aunt May’s decisions of
late because they were influenced over Gwen’s criticisms of Aunt May’s
mothering of Peter, she reassures Peter that Flash is only a friend and
he has nothing to worry about. The couple then go to a fundraiser for
Raleigh’s campaign, where they meet with Mary Jane. During the event,
Peter’s spider-sense goes off, he notices the roof of the reception hall
is about to collapse. Killing the lights Peter, with no time to change
into his Spider-Man costume, tries to stop the collapse with his
webbing, however it’s not enough, and unless he comes up with an idea
fast, the roof will collapse and kill everyone there, including Gwen.
Adapted from Spectacular Spider-Man Magazine # 1
(July, 1968). The story was heavily re-drawn and edited to fit the
continuity of the time, as the original story happened during a time
prior to the death of George Stacy. As a result, the version featured in
Spectacular Spider-Man Magazine, can be presumed to be retconned out of
continuity. However, as Richard Raleigh had been seen dead as well in Daredevil #42 (in Italy on Devil corno 39), it remains unclear which of the two versions are to be considered in coninuity.

A man arrives in a small village looking for Pan, whom all the
villagers affirm does exist. He hopes to cash in somehow, but becomes
frustrated when no one will tell him where to find Pan, and he begins to
think they are just scamming the tourists. He threatens to rough up a
bartender and the bartender directs him to a nearby grove under the full
moon. The man goes, and does encounter Pan, but is so unsettled by the
encounter he immediately leaves town. It turns out the bartender has
- Old Pedros
- Other villagers
- Mediterranean island
On a small Mediterranean island of fisherfolk, Old Pedros is the town
bell-ringer. One day the volcano atop the island begins to erupt. The
villagers evacuate and put out to sea. Old Pedros, though, stays at the
church. “The bells must be rung,” he tells himself. “Someone will hear.
For centuries someone has always heard!” Molten rock streams toward the
church. Before it reaches Old Pedros, a ray of sunlight surrounds him.
The superstitious villagers swear they saw him ride that ray into the
sky. Did their eyes play tricks on them, or did Someone hear the bells?
