[personal profile] skalja requested some old-school Marvel Team-Up. For your sampling pleasure today I've selected four issues from 1977, #s 59, 60, 61 and 62, by Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Dave Hunt.

I loved the old MTU series for its meticulous attention to continuity; it wove the team-ups around the characters' own series, yet still flowed smoothly from one story to another itself; and, as you'll see here, it was a great place to pick up and expand upon dropped plot threads and start new ones. The tricky bit here is that the individual stories are only 17 pages long, which my trusty calculator tells me makes for 5 and a half postable pages. And the plots are kind of all over the place, so this may be a bit tricky to follow, but I shall try to fill in the gaps.

We start with #59, guest starring Yellowjacket and the Wasp, titled "Some Say Spidey Will Die By Fire...Some Say By Ice!" BTW, this issue is "dedicated - with respect and admiration - to Roy Thomas." I know not why.
Seventies Spidey could not catch an even break. Ever. )

So. What'd you guys think of the trip down memory lane?
