Marvel Tales (1972): 34-136

With issue 34, Marvel Tales became a regular-sized comic that started focusing on Amazing Spider-Man stories exclusively. Issues 34-136 reprinted Amazing Spider-Man #48-49, 51-56, 59-70, 73-99, 103-118, 121-159. I have noted where the missing issues are reprinted. You can check my Amazing Spider-Man list for more info.

Initially there were new covers drawn for these reprints. But starting issue 42, Marvel starting using facsimile covers.

The page cuts start in issue 59 (Amazing Spider-Man #78). From Amazing Spider-Man #84 (5/1970) to Amazing Spider-Man #99 (8/1971), pages 12 and 13 are 1/2 page each. To remain consistent with the official Marvel indices, I have counted only full pages. Thus pages 12-13 become page 12, page 14 becomes page 13, etc.

So a reference to an omitted page is for the new page numbering. For example, if page 15 is listed as cut, it is actually numbered as page 16 in the original comic. This new numbering only affects Marvel Tales #65 through Marvel Tales #80.

Fortunately the Masterworks have reprinted these stories completely. There were some important events during this run, e.g. the drug issues not approved by the Comics Code, the death of Captain Stacy and Gwen Stacy, and the introduction of the Punisher.
