31.Oct.2011 Three New York City classics in one comic!

The esteemed Sean T. Collins wrote a Spider-Man story for Spider-Man: Marvel Adventures #19. I’m a big fan of Sean’s and a big fan of the Friendly Neighborhood Wall-crawler, but kicking the story off with pizza… well, that was the extra cheese on this metaphorical pie!
