    @Mark-Go for it. I have a lot of fond memories of them. I mean it had the two Spidey/ Superman teams up in it too.

    I got one of the treasuries for Christmas a few years ago. It was the one that reprinted the 6 Arm Saga. Gorgeous book. I dunno if I'm gonna buy this, but it'll be nice to have Bradshaw's art that size.

    I loved these as a kid. I remember having to talk my mom into spending a whole $2 for a comic. Spidey and the Hulk at the 1980 Winter Olympics was my all time favorite. Here's a great review of that book. http://13thdimension.com/when-spidey-and-the-hulk-saved-the-olympics/
