Amazing Spider-Man Vol 1 #118, March, 1973

This issue adapts pages 34-52 of Spectacular Spider-Man Magazine #1. The story was heavily re-drawn and edited to fit the continuity of the time. However, as Richard Raleigh had been seen dead as well in Daredevil #42, it remains unclear which of the two versions are to be considered in continuity.
In the original story, Richard Raleigh sends the Man-Monster to capture George Stacy, who had been looking into his past. This scene has been greatly changed for a few reasons: The most important is the fact that George Stacy had died in Amazing Spider-Man #90. The moments where Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy are present during the attack are cut because the motorcycle that Peter Parker bought in Amazing Spider-Man #44 was later sold in Amazing Spider-Man #66.
An additional scene of Peter, Gwen, Mary Jane, and Harry are driving a Raleigh campaign vehicle.
The final battle between Spider-Man, Raleigh, and his minions is altered in that Raleigh is disguised as the Disruptor. In this version of the story, Spider-Man removes the Disruptor's costume. The scene where Jameson discovers Raleigh dead in the ruins of his mansion is altered to show Spider-Man disposing of the Disruptor costume and teasing Spider-Man's battle with the Hulk, which occurs next issue.
