Sensational 70s SPIDER-MAN Sunday Strips! Watch Stan and Johnny Create Marvel Magic! 1977 PIZZAZZ Article!

Interrupting our usual high-flying SPIDEY Sunday strip serialization, I'm happy to present this rare 1977 article from PIZZAZZ magazine! In this fabulous feature, we get to see Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr. create the very strips I've been presenting for these many years! We also get glimpses of the others who helped shape such Marvel magnificence, such as Marie Severin and Jim Shooter (soon to become a controversial editor-in-chief at the firm)! Click below to enlarge, arachnid aficionados!

It is kinda disillusioning to learn that Stan alone did not script these SPIDER-MAN
strips, but such collaborative creating was always the "Marvel method..."

How many of those incredible covers (seen on the wall
behind Romita, and on the table near Stan and John on
page one) can you identify, Marvelite? One of them
can be seen here!
