This 1982 Amazing Spider-man giveaway comic was one of my first comics given to me at my dentist's office. In partnership with Aim toothpaste, Marvel published this tale of Spidey vs. Doc Ock vs. toothaches. Dentistry and a battle ensues in "Crisis at Cape Canaveral!" I read this over and over when I was a kid. I didn't care that it was a comic meant to help sell toothpaste because the advertising didn't drive the story like those old Hostess ads (which were great 'cause they were short and odd). This was a comic that would entertain kids and give them an incentive to go to the scary dentist...
