The Spectacular Spider-Man #142 (1988)
Writer: Gerry Conway
Artist: Sal Buscema
Mary Jane just has a broken or sprained wrist. Peter has a book signing in Atlanta and Tombstone tells him to meet him somewhere there to give him the tape. Peter shows up as Spider-Man and beats the pants off of Tombstone and hands him over to the cops. The Persuader finally cracks Punisher into working as a hitman for Kingpin. The doctors say Joe Robertson’s back wasn’t broken, but merely bruised and the nerves traumatized. He can walk with a few weeks of physical therapy. Joe decides to give his deposition on Tombstone to the police.
