Spectacular Spider-Man #144-145 (1988)

While in San Diego for his book tour, Spider-Man faces off against Boomerang as the criminal tries to disrupt…A yacht race?!?

And Boomerang actually gets the better of Spidey and chains him to the bottom of a boat (instead of just killing him), so that Spidey can do a dramatic bust-out.

And then of course Spidey takes down the bad guy and his client.

It’s pretty contrived, but it’s not a bad comic per se.

Also, he meets Tama Janowitz…

Creators: Gerry Conway, Sal Buscema
Grade: C.  Average.  Fun, but two issues is a little long to take down Boomerang.
