Spectacular Sunday SPIDER-MAN 70s Strips! Peter Parker Snaps! Marvel!

Last time, we sat in a shattering stupor, as Spidey performed his second unsavory deed at the behest of his faceless female foe! Now, Peter Parker is hard-pressed to turn the tables and uncover his blackmailer, before he's forced to commit further unspeakable tasks (even murder?) for his unseen enemy! But, will Pete snap before he can overturn this sick scenario? Will more innocent folks be harmed in the meantime? And--will Carole ever forgive Peter for his imprudent accusations? More rare daily 1978 newspaper strips from Mighty Marvel and Stan Lee with John Romita, Sr.! Click below to enlarge, then web-sling over to here for the next full-color sensational installment!

Note how, in the last panel of that first strip, artist Romita juxtaposes
the "old" version of the blackmailer with her current look and role,
creating a sense of menace, foreboding, and foreshadowing!
