Superb Sunday SPIDER-MAN 70s Strips! "The Outasight Cheer-Leaders!" Marvel Madness!

Last time, we saw a perturbed Peter Parker attempt to thwart the evil machinations of the Prowler, the newest super-foe in town! Now, as Pete (with marvelous MJ by his side) tries to take in a ballgame, his new foe continues, undeterred, with his plans to rob the sports stadium! Will Spidey be able to finally convince the Prowler that a life of crime is for chumps? Or will both costumed cut-ups have to take their lumps? More rare 1979 SPIDER-MAN newspaper strips, from the hands of Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr.! Click below to enlarge!

an eye! Imagine the things they've seen….

and the Black Widow line up for eager photographers!

fans look on! Ol' Shellhead musta been at the hotel bar….



Above: Then this happened...





Above: "Ya see, it's all in the wrist…"




Above three images: That's right. "Copslay Jesus" comes in, to arrange an
angelic Avengers photo shoot! Hey, a little prayer can never hurt!

Punisher, up against an amazingly re-created Red Skull (brandishing the chaos-causing 
Cosmic Cube, yet)!

Above: Ya wanna get away from the madding crowds and cool out? Dig this
little tucked-away nook, cool and quiet, and made for reading and reflecting!


Above: Then this happened! A wonderful marching band, fresh from downtown's 
St. Paddy's Day party (the food! The music!) strike up with some amazing music! 
You shoulda been there when they swung into "Amazing Grace!" Not a dry eye in 
the joint! Never seen so many "Vulcan salutes" in one place!


Above: Unmasked! The wrap-up to an exhausting (but fun) weekend! Me and
my sweetie (and official "Captain America" crew chief), Allyson Bigley!
