Spider-Man's life takes a grave turn! He's about to encounter Tombstone - the highest-priced killer in the business - and the whispering hitman will make a big noise in the wall-crawler's life. Who is Tombstone? Why is Joe Robertson investigating him? What devastating action will Tombstone take to put a stop to that? And how will it all end with Joe on trial?! Whatever the answers, the albino assassin is about to get Spider-Man's attention - and the Punisher's, too! Meanwhile, Boomerang makes his comeback, Evolutionary War breaks out, Inferno rages, and the Hobgoblin goes demonic. Carrion is spooky enough, but which face from Spidey's past makes a ghoulish return? And when the wall-crawler faces Tarantula, whose side will Captain America choose? Collecting SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN (1976) #137-150 and material from ANNUAL #8.
