Synopsis:
When Spider-man begins experiencing dizziness and other strange symptoms, he believes that he has become ill, but little does he know that he has fallen under the mental control of the Sorceror! Travelling to New Orleans against his will, Spidey comes face to face with the unbeatable Synthetic Man! Can Spidey stop this foe, and just what does a simple mailman have to do with Spidey's victory or defeat?

Notes:
The Spider-Man story is noteworthy for featuring Ross Andru's first work on a Spidey story. He returned to the character in 1973 and illustrated almost 50 consecutive issues of Amazing Spider-Man (1963) from #125-185.

A caption beside the credit box explains how this 20-page story came to be: "When Jazzy Johnny sprained his wrist, our old pal Ross Andru came to the rescue with this replacement Spidey yarn! But then Johnny made his deadline after all! Since we can't bear to leave this mixed-up little masterpiece slumbering on the shelf, here it is, pilgrim--a once-in-a-lifetime treat for you--!"
