Web of Spider-Man #26-27 (1987)

These are two fill-in stories.  In the first one, Spider-Man gets some chemicals spilled on him that make him less able to beat up street-level thugs, and by the end of the issue, he has recovered.  It’s a lot like that issue from the Lee/Ditko days when he got the flu.

In the second, he takes on a villain named Headhunter who literally cuts off the heads of his victims and stores them in jars.  A little more gruesome that we’ve come to expect from Spidey stories.

Right now, there is nothing that makes Web a title worth reading. Nothing distinctive, and the stories are just bad.

I did like the brief appearance at Josie’s Bar, which always gets its window smashed by Daredevil.
