SUFFERIN' SHAD! THE SEEMINGLY NEVER ENDING SPIDER-MAN COMICS WEEKLY COVER GALLERY - PART ELEVEN...
Issue #33 of SPIDER-MAN COMICS WEEKLY ushered in the
JOHN ROMITA era of Spidey, with the Jazzy one breathing new life
into the ol' web-spinner. Romita's style was arguably more 'commercial'
and, in the States, where these tales had first appeared some years earlier,
sales reportedly increased after STEVE DITKO departed. It's unrecorded
whether the same thing happened here, 'though it's unlikely as, with #35,
the 40 page issues came to an end, with #36 onward sporting 8 fewer
pages than before. When the mag went glossy covered with #48, the
page count went up to 36, but so too did the price - to 6 pence.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy another look at the covers and some
of the pin-ups from the last 40 page issues of SMCW. If you had any
of these comics at the time, feel free to share your memories of them
in the comments section. Go on - you know you want to.
