SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL (1964) (#1-28) (MARVEL) #15 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Amazing Spider-Man Annual #15
"Spider-Man: Threat or Menace?" Art by Frank Miller, story by Dennis O'Neil. Guest-starring the Punisher. A traveling mystic claims to have the Dim Mak, the Death Touch, and Peter Parker, photographer for the Daily Bugle, is sent in for pictures of a demonstration. But it's Frank Castle, the Punisher, who proves the deadliest part of the show as he sends a bullet straight through the guru just after he delivers the fatal touch. A rooftop battle between Spidey and the revenge-crazed gunman proves inconclusive and frustrating.

Enter Dr. Octopus, who subdues the Punisher, even as Spider-Man figures out the Dim Mak is really a deadly nerve toxin that kills on contact with the skin. In an underwater base, Doc Ock uses a purloined cask of the stuff to blackmail the city. The wallcrawler and a half-poisoned Punisher duke it out again allowing Dr. Octopus time to escape. Figuring out the only way he'll be able to carry out his threat is to poison the Daily Bugle's ink, Spidey corners the arch-criminal at the printing presses and a battle royale breaks loose with J. Jonah Jameson in the middle. Also, get the answer to "Just How Strong is Spider-Man?," a close look at Peter Parker's apartment and pin-ups of the Man-Wolf, the Jackal, the Punisher and the Tarantula.
