Indexer Notes

According to John Romita, Sr. Larry Lieber penciled the "Spider-man Saga" origin recap, even though Lieber's name doesn't appear on the contents page credits. Lieber is credited, however for penciling the origin story in Spectacular Spider-man #1. John Romita, Sr. stated that he did the inks, recalling that during this period he and Lieber were working in the same office on several issues simultaneously, including the Spectacular Spider-man 1 and 2, the Amazing Spider-man monthly issues and Amazing Spider-man Annual #5.

Nick Caputo suspects that Romita was in error and the inking is actually the work of Frank Giacoia. Giacoia is given credit under layout and illustration on the table of contents, and his hand is evident as inker on several pages of the story. Romita likely laid out the page and provided corrections.
