366 Days with J. Jonah Jameson, Day 120: I'm gonna pop some tags, only got twenty-four dollars in my pocket

When you're an Electric Company-watchin' kid who's also reading Spidey Super Stories, $24 seems like all the money in the world. And you could earn that much sharpening pencils, well, then, whoo boy, you'd have all the comic books and Hi-C Ecto-Cooler in the world.

Panels from "The Last Laugh" in Spidey Super Stories #18 (August 1976), script by Pat Thackray, pencils by Win Mortimer, inks by Mike Esposito and Tony Mortellaro, letters by Ray Holloway (?)

So guess who's out to earn that cool two dozen bucks, huh? Three guesses and the first two don't count, and the third one doesn't either unless you call him "Spidey."

Hey, he stole Jonah's cigar!

Petey certainly didn't think that one through (considering it has happened to him before quite early in his career). WAHHH WAHHH WAHHH THAT'S OUR SPIDEY hey wait he shoulda taken the check to one of those fly-by-night check cashing places that doesn't check ID and only costs you 80% of your check.

Oh, Pete... All Spider-Sense, no practical foresight.
