Disembodied Floating Head(tm!) Theater Tuesday!

So I'm at Amazing Spider-Man #97, the infamous "Harry Osborn does drugs" storyline that was quite groundbreaking in its day, and I start noticing something: There are a lot of Disembodied Floating Heads (tm!) in this story.

First, we have the Inspiring Disembodied Floating Heads of Gwen Stacy (tm!):

Next, we have the "Substance Abuse-Inducing Disembodied Floating Heads of Mary Jane Watson" (tm!):

Note that they come complete with "Fashion Sense-Challenged Peter Parker"!

And, of course, we have the "Dramatic Drug-Induced Floating Self-Heads of Harry Osborn" (tm!):

And, to bring us full circle, we have the "Why Is Gwen Stacy's Disembodied Floating Head Still Here When the Real Gwen Stacy is Right in Front of Me? Disembodied Floating Head" (tm!):

That's a lot of Disembodied Floating Heads (tm!) for one twenty-page issue, don't you think?

Oh, and drugs are bad or something.  Don't let me distract you from the main message there, kids.

See you tomorrow!

those Stacy seems to fall right into the uncanny valley with those heads of her. *shivers* so creepy.

How the hell many different types of pills was Harry taking?

If you're already surrounded by giant floating heads all day, the drugs seem kind of redundant.

Not to mention that these panels are jam-packed with Gil Kane Nostril Action(tm)!
