 Reprinted In: Spider-Man Annual (UK) 1979

The title tips you off to Stan’s angle for this feature. Even as he shows Peter demonstrating how he tucks his mask and gloves into his utility belt and how he can see through his eye lenses and how his web-shooters work, Stan fills the captions with fashion show runway-speak: “The nails must be well trimmed to prevent ripping distinctive patterned stretch-socks,” “An improvement over the usual type of sun-glasses are Spidey’s one-way peep holes!” and my favorite, “For the man who has everything, his own personal web-shooter makes a unique and welcome gift! Cartridges are extra, and can be obtained practically nowhere at all!”

In General...

Pretty basic Spidey stuff but done with pizzazz.

Overall Rating...

Three Webs.
