amazing spider-man #6

The Bugle debuted in issue #5, and already it’s becoming a Spider-Man mainstay.

This was the issue that introduced The Lizard.  Vulture.  Chameleon.  Doctor Octopus.  Sandman.  So far, every villain introduced in these issues has become iconic.

Stan Lee was a fucking genius.  I know current nerd politics are to say it was Jack Kirby who did all the work, but that’s bullshit.  Stan pulled his own weight, and then some.
