Superior Sunday 70s SPIDER-MAN Strips! The Marriage of Mysterio?! 1978 Marvel Magnificence!

Last week, we witnessed the first filming of a new (in 1978) SPIDER-MAN movie! But, a make-believe Mysterio seems to be more than just a mad movie maven! Now, Spidey not only faces a real threat from the sinister celluloid sap, but also from the producer himself! Will the woeful Web-Slinger ever find love and acceptance? Will his violent demise be caught on film? And, how many folks today understand the jolly jokes from that third strip? Yet another dose of daily and daring doings from the dynamic duo of Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr.! Click below to enlarge, then rush here for the next tense installment, Marvelite!

By adding topical references from pop culture, as seen in that third strip, Stan Lee added a layer of realism and the feeling that these outrageous characters existed in the "real world!"
