Just an advisory to those who picked up this issue...there's a big glitch by
way of a missing dialogue balloon at the most crucial part of the story. (It
was a production glitch late in the game.)

Spoiler space for those who haven't gotten it yet



















On page 18, where MJ and Peter are having their heart-to-heart at last, on the
next-to-last panel, after MJ says "when I went away," there was supposed to be
the following dialogue in the last panel on that page.

"...it was because I was so far outside your life, I could never DO anything to
help. I could never be a part of what yo do, and you could do it so well, that
I just...I didn't think you needed me, Peter. That's all I wanted to know,
that's all I wanted to hear, that you needed me, that you..."

Just a small thing, the justification for the whole arc....

Actually, I was thinking I might just get a stencil of the missing dialogue and
bleed through the stencil onto the page....

Then all we need is to get a CGC rating set aside for certain blood types, so
it'd be 9.3 B-negative.....

It fell off the page.

Literally.
