Sky-High SPIDER-MAN 70s Strips! Spidey Fights--The Healthcare System?! '79 Marvel Greatness!

Last time, we watched in awe, as Spidey tussled with the deadly new super-villain, the Prowler! Now, our worried Web-Slinger has to deal with an awkward injured ankle, in addition to solving the riddle of his new foe! What can a swingin' superhero do? Our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man visits his friendly neighborhood physician! What happens? Spidey learns the meaning of the age-old motto "heal thyself!" More 1979 Sunday strip fun from Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr.! Click below to enlarge!

Above: Writer Stan Lee often used the SPIDEY strip to make political or
social statements, and none was more effective than this little gem, with the
Web-Head rebelling against the smothering bureaucratic blanket that was (and
still is) US healthcare!
