The iconic superhero’s 1980s-era newspaper strip is the one major part of his adventures that has not been reprinted. Now saved from the dustbins of ephemera for all of the Wall Crawler’s fans in this deluxe hardcover series.
The woebegone web-slinger encounters problems that make Dar Harat seem like a sewing circle—if he can escape from their clutches, that is! Daily Bugle writer Jenny Sue Saxon arrives and falls for Peter Parker while trying to become Spider-Man’s biographer, even as Aunt May faces financial ruin in a very modern kind of bank heist. Mary Jane returns just in time to learn an important secret—and to introduce Peter to her Uncle Spencer Watson (what, no Aunt Anna?). Spidey’s reputation is under fire when he’s accused of pushing drugs. It’s not for the squeamish! And in a story that rivals the classic “drug issues” of Spider-Man’s comic book, Stan Lee addresses one of the most heart-rending problems of modern times: child abuse.
