Spider-Man's Tangled Web was a short-lived series from the early 2000s starring Spidey's supporting cast and the various people who fall into his orbit (hence the title). As an anthology series, it was a bit hit-or-miss, but there were some real gems in its 22 issues. Of particular note are #4, Severance Package by Greg Rucka and Eduardo Risso; Darwyn Cooke and Jay Bone's two issues (11 and 21); 13, Double Shots by Ron Zimmerman and Sean Phillips; and the issue I'm featuring here: 20, Behind the Mustache by Zeb Wells and Dean Haspiel. Not only is it a great story for a great supporting character, it's one of my favorite single Spider-Man issues.

After his second heart attack, Jonah needs to get anger management therapy or the Daily Bugle's health insurance company will sever their contract. His first session gets off to a rocky start, but eventually Jonah starts talking about his relationship with his abusive father (since retconned to stepfather by BND) and his high school sweetheart and eventual wife, Joan. I'm pretty sure this is the first time we've ever seen Joan, since she died years before Peter became Spider-Man.

There are a lot of fantastic moments in this issue and I wish I could post all of it; if you liked these scenes, definitely track down the entire story.
