A few days ago I read The Amazing Spider-Man:Hooky, Susan K. Putney and Bernie Wrightson’s contribution to the Marvel Graphic Novel series.
There’s really no reason for this to exist.  It’s pretty damn bad.  Spider-Man could have been replaced with any other superhero, hell, even a completely new, not in continuity, character, and the book would have been no different.  It’s bad writing. 
The only positive is Wrightson’s artwork, which is stunning.  He dedicates no less than 4 full page spreads to just Spider-Man fighting extra-dimensional monsters. 
It still doesn’t make this any good.

I’ve never read this, but the cover and ads for it terrified me when I was little.
