Spectacular Sunday SPIDER-MAN 70s Strips! Spidey Closes in on Crime! Marvel!

Last time, we saw a malicious mob of muggers make clear their threat, as they readied their weapons to wage war with the Wall-Crawler, police, and anyone else who blinked! Now, the wrinkled web draws ever tighter, involving not only Peter Parker/Spidey, but his long-time pal, reliable Robbie Robertson! Will Spidey (or Robbie) win out over these low-lying lowbrows? Can Robbie's nephew be saved? And--when does that tricked-out van come into play? Get set for more high-flying superhero action, in these rare 1978 strips from the pens of Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr.! Click below to enlarge, then web-whip over to here for the next full-color installment, True Believers!

Always loved those little touches of "realism" in Stan Lee's scripts, such as Spidey being
hampered by a sudden downpour! You never saw that kinda thing happen to Superman!
