For me, this book represents the end of an era (although I wasn't even reading comics at the time). Team up books represented a huge chunk of my childhood comic book reading. Between 1978 and 1983, I read a ton of MTU, Marvel Two-in-One, Brave and the Bold and DC Comics Presents. By the time Marvel Team-Up #150 hit the shelves at the tail end of 1984, it was the last one standing. This great series was cancelled in order to make room for the less than great Web of Spider-Man, but at least they gave it a double-sized issue as a swansong. It's a pretty fun story, with Juggernaut sharing some of his power with Black Tom Cassidy. Sure, the fight sequence are overly long, but the characterizations are strong and Spidey's humor is intact. I've never been a big fan of the Barry Windsor-Smith cover, though, as it isn't consistent with the overall tone of this series. Like Joni said: you don't know what you've 'til it's gone.
