Spectacular Spider-Man #156 (1989)

During a prison transport, Tombstone and Robbie Robertson get lost in Appalachia.  Spider-Man goes a-searchin’, and finds some back-woods hillbillies reminiscent of the movie Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  (Robbie and Tombstone are actually with some Amish, and not the weirdoes.)

Also, Thomas Fireheart (aka The Puma) buys the Daily Bugle.

All of this feels like stalling and heavy plotwork, with nothing really “happening” in the issue.

Creators: Gerry Conway, Sal Buscema
