Superlative Sunday SPIDER-MAN 70s Strips! "You Were Expecting John Travolta?!" 1978 Marvelmania!

Last time, Spidey tended to his loved ones, after wrapping up a dangerous case that put said friends (and others) in deadly danger! But, his happy ending is short-lived as he rushes to play good samaritan, only to find himself back in hot water again! What does this mysterious maiden want with Spidey's secret ID? Is she friend or foe? And--who jogs wearing their full street clothes (with a Spider-Man costume beneath them) late at night in New York City?! More sensational '78 SPIDER-MAN strips, from writer Stan Lee and artist John Romita, Sr. (with some deadline-easing help this time around)! Click below to enlarge, True Believer!

Stan Lee added yet another bit of "realism," with the simple idea
of an outsider finding the hero's hidden street clothes, and 

peeking into his wallet to snag his real identity! Why would 
every threat to a hero come only from scheming 
criminal masterminds?
