Spectacular 70s Sunday SPIDER-MAN Strip! The Looming Lunatic Called LOOMIS! 1979 Marvel Greatness!

Last time, we watched in stunned awe, as Spidey encountered a new possible threat, a mysterious man called Loomis! This self-styled self-help swami (it was the 70s) seems to be nothing more than a harmless crank, but now that he holds cute Carole (Spidey's sexy siren) in his sombre sway, our harassed hero must get involved! Will Peter be swept away by the lyrical lure of Loomis? Can Carole be saved? Does this mean yet another strained sabbatical for Pete's love life? More mile-high Marvel madness form Stan Lee and John Romita. Sr.! Click below to enlarge!

Oddly, this 1979 SPIDER-MAN newspaper strip plot hews closely to the 1977
CBS SPIDER-MAN live-action pilot episode! In that telefilm, Peter Parker meets a
gal-pal who finds herself under the sway of a hypnotic speaker who uses mind-control
to have his followers rob and steal for his gain!
