Spectacular Spider-Man #4
Spectacular Spider-Man #4 is today's comic book cover and it is a nice looking damsel in distress cover. The Vulture, the flying villain and mainstay in the Sinister Six and even the Sinister Twelve, comes into the frame to challenge Spiderman's wit and experience. This issue came out in March of 1976 and once again brought back a Spiderman mainstay villain, the Vulture. I never really got the whole Vulture character considering he is just using a suit that gives him powers not really a radioactive villain or mutant. He's a good fighter, but he's essentially just wearing a suit. Granted he poses quite the threat and Spiderman is pushed to the limits yet again. The writers and artists are WRiter/Editor Archie Goodwin, Sal Buscema Penciler, Mike Sposito Inker,Karen Mantlo Letterer, Cohen & Sev Colorist, and provide a nice looking cover and interior comic.
You can read about this adventure in "The Essential Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 1" which compiles "Peter Parker: Spectacular Spider-Man 1-31 in order".
