Spider-man's Origin in Electric Company Magazine
Above is a abbreviated version of the Origin of Spider-man that appeared in Electric Company magazine. There are no credits so it's anybody's guess who wrote it but that is definitely Sal Buscema's art work, just not sure if he inked himself. I'm going to venture a guess and say it might be inked by Mike Esposito.
I think it's interesting that they leave the death of Uncle Ben out of the story considering how important that plot point is to the story, but I guess for a children's magazine that might be to "disturbing" for it's intended audience. Hopefully this led the kids to read Spider-man's regular comics and there they could learn the great lesson of "With great power there must be great responsibility".
