Thirty years ago, Spider-Man faced some of his darkest fears -- and appeared on one of his most classic covers.  

Frequently noted as one of the great Spider-Man covers, Mike Zeck's cover for "Web of Spider-Man" #32, cover-dated Nov. 1987, sees Spidey emerging from the shallow grave in which he was dumped by Kraven the Hunter. This issue is part 4 of "Kraven's Last Hunt," which was written by J.M. DeMatteis and drawn by Mike Zeck and Bob McLeod.  

“Kraven’s Last Hunt” takes Spider-Man on a dark, psychological thriller as his longtime villain Kraven the Hunter determines to make a final hunt to kill and replace Spider-Man.  The story examined the mental states of both Kraven and of Spider-Man.

The six-part saga crossed into the three Spider-books of the time: "Amazing Spider-Man," "Web of Spider-Man" and "Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man."
