Paul Jenkins took a more psychological approach to Spider-man and his villians when he wrote The Spectacular Spider-man. In “The Lizard’s Tale,” Jenkin hypothesizes that maybe Dr. Curt Connors doesn’t really lose control. Maybe he just uses his Lizard persona to act out all his violent fantasies – his dark side. Kind of like people who drink too much and use it as an excuse to be dumb jerks.

Story by Paul Jenkins, Pencils by Daimon Scott. Nice work by the colorist, too! We love how the color articulates every web on Spidey’s costume and every scale on The Lizard.
