I had left TSR in 1989 but was still doing a lot of freelance art for them. Luckily, they still had me painting the Gamer’s Handbook update covers. I had originally wanted to highlight much more of Spidey’s rich history and wonderful Rogues Gallery, but the deadline didn’t allow it. I was told to make Mary Jane look as she appeared in the comics at that time. I never cared for the way she turned out and eventually repainted her with a more traditional look.
