Face front, True Believers! There’s few moments in comicdom as classic as when nerdy Peter Parker finally meets redhead sexbomb Mary Jane Watson. We first heard about MJ way back when Snazzy Steve Ditko was drawing the comic, but didn’t actually see her face until Amazing Spider-Man #42 when Jazzy Johnny Romita was on pencil duties.
Here’s how that momentous moment went down, followed by all the homages I could find. Just hover the mouse over the pics to see where they came from, and if I’ve missed any, let me know. You’ll even get a No Prize!
