    Part 1 of 3
    With the Hobgoblin saga drawing to a close, things are finally settling down in Peter Parker's life. However there is still something or someone missing. And Aunt May's nephew is determined to fill the void...in his life and more importantly in his heart! But when the wall-crawler arrives at Mary Jane's apartment, he finds the enchanting redhead distressed by a phone call from her estranged family. Oh no, will Peter's proposal go down in flames? Cameo appearances by Aunt May, J. Jonah Jameson, and New York Mayor Ed Koch. Flashback cameo by Uncle Ben. (Notes: This is the second time Peter proposes to Mary Jane -- the first occurred in Amazing Spider-Man 182. The final page of the story features a classic full-page panel of Peter asking Mary Jane to marry him. This issue includes a full-page ad by Klaus Janson for the new Punisher (2nd) series.
