Spectacular 70s SPIDER-MAN Strip! Peter Parker Publically Unmasks?! 1978 Marvel Mayhem!

It's New Year's eve, and as our somewhat sanguine superhero readies to usher in 1978, he finds his spirits lifted as a new gal-pal enters the scene! But, has Peter Parker let his guard down too soon, going unmasked in front of so many strangers? And, how does this new femme friend tie into the party-pulverizing explosion? Who is that man in the shadows? And--why don't gals dress up like a hot Uncle Sam today? More sensational SPIDER-MAN color newspaper strips from "Smilin'" Stan Lee and John "Ring-a-Ding" Romita Sr.! Click to enlarge!

Writer Stan Lee allowed the "newspaper strip" version of Spidey to be more outgoing and forward, in contrast to his comic book counterpart, who endlessly worried over lost loves, his friends, etc...Stan also gave Peter a larger variety of girlfriends, and a burgeoning social life, in this long-running newspaper strip!
