Lack of funds has always been a problem for Peter and Aunt May, even in the early days. Consider this panel from Amazing Spider-Man #24:
I'm not Suze Ormon, but here's a little financial tip for the Parkers: If you barely have enough money for medicine, don't buy a new hat for every party. Also, interest on money stored in a cookie jar is usually less than one might get from a local bank or credit union, but we'll get more into that later.
That notwithstanding, Amazing had some Moments of Comic Book Greatness (tm!) which we are morally obliged to recognize. From Amazing Spider-Man #23:

Back to Amazing Spider-Man #24, Spidey takes a time out from battling mobsters to check in with Aunt May, giving us yet another Moment of Comic Book Greatness! (tm!):
Speaking of awesome, here's another great panel from Lois Lane # 27:
Yes, every time an atomic bomb detonates, the world is that much more peaceful. Thanks to Robert Gillis for this great panel!
See you tomorrow!
