(Spidey Super Stories#42/4 (fb) - BTS) - Magic Wanda, known to Spider-Man, managed to secretly steal almost all the books from the New York Public Library and load them on a truck. Valerie the librarian was initially unaware of the crime.

(Spidey Super Stories#42/4) - Peter Parker and Valerie discovered the grand book theft. Parker secretly changed into Spider-Man and saw Magic Wanda with her truck full of books and rushed outside to stop her, but she used her magic pencil to bring a lion statue to life. While Spidey was distracted taking the webbed lion to the zoo, Magic Wanda tried to hide inside a giant book after loading the books onto train carriages, but Spider-Man, accompanied by Easy Reader, found her. She fled and tried to get the train moving, but Spider-Man's webbing prevented it from starting. Later, with the books returned, Magic Wanda took her borrowing card from Valerie under the watchful eye of Spider-Man, apparently all forgiven.
