Sky-High 70s SPIDER-MAN Sunday Strips! The Pivotal and Powerful Pot-Hole! 1978 Marvel Madness!

Last time, we sat stupefied, as Spidey whipped across New York City, trying to desperately stop a speeding van, chock-a-block full of vengeful villains! After the cops proved ineffectual against the felons-on-wheels, it's now up to the worried Wall-Crawler to bring their reign of spreading terror to a definitive halt! Has he done it? What about their cache of ready weapons? And-whose idea was it to put a TV set in Aunt May's hospital room? More amazing daily strips from 1978, brought to us by Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr.! Click below to enlarge, then web-sling over to here for the next full-color Sunday strip installment, arachnid-aficionados!

Once again, it looks as if Romita had some artistic help on
these strips, possibly from Frank Giacoia!

 BONUS! Click below to stare at pics of the stalwart strip creators, Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr.!

Note the fan's Spidey T-shirt, sporting art by (who else?) John Romita!

John appears to be re-working the cover of 1976's SPIDER-MAN #157possibly 
for its reprinting in MARVEL TALES (see copies at John's left elbow)!
