    I don't even remember the follow up. I assume that was in later issues of Sensational right before OMD?

    I have seen that USM #13 tends to do well on Spidey-centric lists and among USM fans (I think it probably was the best issue of the main series myself). Interesting to see that it did well on a comics in general list (wish that Pizza Dog issue from the Hawkeye series had been higher; that run was something special).

    Outside of that number 13, my favorite single issue story I've read in the franchise was probably that first Spider Slayer back in Lee/Ditko classic ASM era; really fun premise down to the sheer lunacy of Spidey being chased by a robot with Jameson's face and the way Peter brings it all on himself with an ill-timed prank. They also revisited it for that great Spider-Girl story where Mayday travels back in time and meets her dad when he was her age.

    Fred Hembeck had a great review of that one.

    It's in my top five best Spider-Man stories.
