Speaking from personal experience, I will say that whenever an oversized anniversary issue hits stands that collectors will ready their wallets, regardless of whether they’ve been actively following the series in question. So, when Amazing Spider-Man #25 ships next month, expect it to fly off shelves even though it will likely be sold at a higher price when you factor in the knowledge that it will be 96 pages strong.

When it comes to content, readers can look forward to a 40-page main story in the form of the cleverly titled “The Osborn Identity.” As you can no doubt surmise, stalwart writer Dan Slott will reunite Peter Parker with his longtime nemesis Norman Osborn as a new storyline kicks off. Furthermore, fan favorite artist Stuart Immonen has been confirmed to join the party as well.

As for the other 56 pages,

Hugh Hefner's Wedding to Crystal Harris: Think Pink!

Hugh Hefner's Wedding to Crystal Harris: Think Pink!
Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris know they are not a conventional couple. So, why settle for a convention wedding when the pair will exchange their vows on June 18? "The dress is not going to be white," Harris tells People of the Romona Keveza gown she's selected for the occasion. "I love pink! So, the dress will be pink and Hef and I want the wedding to be just a lot of different colors and to just look beautiful." Harris, 24, and Hefner, 84, are in the midst of planning, "and it's pretty great that we haven't argued about anything yet," Harris says.

Hugh Hefner Promises 'Dream' Wedding

Hugh Hefner has promised Crystal Harris the "wedding of her dreams".

The 84-year-old media mogul is set to tie the knot with his 24-year-old girlfriend at the Playboy Mansion on June 18 and insists no expense will be spared to create a perfect day.

The Playboy magazine boss' generosity is covering all aspects of the big day, including the flowers, which he wants to be bold to contrast the pale color scheme Crystal has chosen to match her Romona Keveza dress.

Spokesperson Kellie Olisky said, "No expense is being spared for the wedding. It isn't even a compromise, because Hef wants Crystal to have the wedding of her dreams.

"Hef asked that the flowers be bursting with color and this will look great with Crystal's lighter coloured theme everywhere else."

Entertainment for the evening will come from veteran musician Ray Anthony, as well as Kanye West collaborator DJ Cassidy, while Torrance

Hugh Hefner has been good for us

From the moment that Hal Holmes and I slipped quietly into his basement and he showed me his father's hidden collection of Playboy magazines, the map of my emotional geography shifted toward Chicago. In that magical city lived a man named Hugh Hefner who had Playmates possessing wondrous bits and pieces I had never seen before. I wanted to be invited to his house.

I was trembling on the brim of puberty, and aroused not so much by the rather sedate color "centerfold" of an undressed woman, as by the black and white photos that accompanied them. These showed an ordinary woman (I believe it was Janet Pilgrim) entering an office building in Chicago, and being made up for her "pictorial." Made up! Two makeup artists were shown applying powders and creams to her flesh. This electrified me. It made Pilgrim a real person. In an interview she spoke of her life and ambitions.
