Well tickle my webs and call it time for another offering of the greatest, friendliest, webslingingest super hero of all—the Amazing Spider-Man! The adventures Stan "The Man" and the Jazzy One, John Romita, have in store for you in this ten-spot of tales are enough to make even ol' J. Jonah Jameson fall in love with Spidey. Well, maybe not, but that means you've no competition for a date with the likes of the Prowler in his first appearance; the beautiful Black Widow seen for the first time in her sultry new spy gear; an underworld family in-fight between the Kingpin and the Schemer including Vanessa Fisk's entrée into Marveldom; and the Chameleon, Electro and the Kangaroo, a poor assemblage that's always a bridesmaid and never a bride.
It's not just the most colorful array of villains in comics, of course! There's melodrama aplenty in the fashion that could only befit poor Peter Parker. See how Mr. Luckless himself handles not only the loss of his powers and glowing Gwen's fear of Spidey, but how he wiggles his way out of revealing his identity right before Gwen, MJ, and the gang's very eyes! We'll be waiting, so don't forget that corsage, most Fearless Front Facer! Collecting THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #78-87.
