We start on a plane with Joy and Pete returning from the UK. Joy lambasts Pete for the quality of his work and says she knows about his 'deal' with Spidey (to take pics and split the profit) and is annoyed that he only went to England with her because he knew Spidey was going to show up.
There's a mildly amusing scene where the flight attendant sees Pete and then Joy emerging from the plane's bathroom shortly after each other. After they arrive back in NYC, Pete and Joy are getting shouted at by Jonah for over- using their expense accounts. He quickly changes his tune, however, when he sees what they've uncovered - another funny scene.
As Pete goes to leave the Bugle, Slyde slips out also (separately - Pete doesn't see him). He has stolen some documents from an office upstairs. Pete changes into his costume to go swinging (not like that, those of you with a filthy mind). He picks up a copy of the Bugle and sees Silver Sable's ad (this leads into Amazing 281 and clears up my gripe about continuity from my review of issue 22)
Shortly after Pete visits Aunt May and agrees to go on a weekend visit to Atlantic City with her. We then see a quick recap about the origin of Slyde (Amazing 272, I think). Slyde has stolen the documents from the Bugle to find out some information on a finance journalist called Carl Jenkins as well as some info about some money exchanges being made.
He steals the money and escapes into the city where he is spotted by Pete, who has just bought some chocolates for Mary-Jane. Slyde rushes into Trump Tower, with Spidey hot on his heels. Spidey manages to salvage the cash but Slyde gets away. As Spidey goes back to get his clothes from his webbed bag-thing outside, all the chocs have melted over his clothes. Curse that Parker luck!
In the epilogue we're in Atlantic City and The Vulture is patrolling the skies...
