    It is supposed to primarily collect Amazing Spider-Man. I guess they feel that Spectacular Spider-Man Annual #7 isn't really a part of the Amazing Spider-Man story, as an epilogue to a David Michelinie story, written by James Owsley.

    Indeed, but they collected the entire "Wedding", even the Newspaper strip, and the Shea stadium Spider-Man Wedding special coverage. But not the "Honneymoon" ???

    Yeah, I don't get that, either.

    I see that it's the same with the Wedding tpb.
    I might have the answer. The Honeymoon is only a very small part of the Story and was not worth including.

    Course they included everything in those ASM Annuals, even when half the issue was not about Spider-Man or his supporting cast and the Epic Collections/Complete Collections/etc. haven't been adverse to including excerpts from issues with the rest being discarded. I do get it that the ASM Epics are exclusively for the ASM series and any outside material is on a case-by-case basis and most often when the main story would make no sense otherwise (like how "Kraven's Last Hunt" was spread across multiple series despite working like chapters in a single book). Still, it is annoying.
