    In addition to Gale and Olliffe's story, the issue also presents a Fred Hembeck short that deals with the pre-teen antics of Peter Parker and the Fantastic Four's Johnny Storm, who meet long before either of them obtain super-powers and inadvertently foil a crime spree. It's a fun, silly story that's illustrated in Hembeck's usual charming style and gets its biggest laughs from its forced references to the eventual superhero identities of its characters.

Undeniably, it's worth having the material in print, but it's hard not to feel like it's a bit late to be releasing this as anything more than a curio for the regular "Amazing" buyers. That being the case, well, it probably could have gotten away with being an arc in the series itself, rather than tucked away online or in a miniseries where, one suspects, very few people will actually bother to read it.
