Our Pal Sal: "Slaughter on 10th Avenue!" by Claremont, S. Buscema, and Leialoha

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! We're back with the second smash installment of Chris Claremont, Sal Buscema, and Steve Leialoha's Marvel Team-Up masterpiece featuring Spider-Man, Black Widow, Nick Fury--and more to come! This time we're gonna check out MTU #83 (April 1979). "Slaughter on 10th Avenue!" brings Nick Fury into the fold, gives us the low-down on the whole Nancy Rushman/Black Widow identity thing, and even adds the Silver Samurai and Boomerang to the mix! Plus, we learn who's behind the whole schmeer...but Ol' Groove'll let you learn that secret for yourself if you've never had the pleasure of reading this beauty before! Onward!


  1. As I said in response to the first installment, the Buscema/Leialoha art team was amazing. How appropriate for an adventure starring our intrepid Mr. Parker.

  2. Oh, yeah! (I pretty much said everything I wanted to when you posted the first installment, but I like the story so much I couldn't just let this one pass without commenting.)

  3. Wow both these issues have been A+ issues

  4. I've always loved that splash page. Beautiful stuff.
