Letters Column: Spectacular Spider-Mail

Synopsis:
Chapter Two of the four-issue "Legion of Light" storyline. After being stunned by Brother Power and Sister Sun, Spider-Man meets a new adversary in the alley: Razorback. After the obligatory "get acquainted" scuffle (a comic book custom that Mantlo cleverly acknowledges in the dialogue), Spidey, Razorback and Flash Thompson all pile into Razorback's rig "Big Pig" and follow a tracer he planted on Brother Power's car to a mansion in upstate New York. Spidet sneaks past armed cultists guarding the mansion and discovers the man pulling the strings of the Legion of Light cult is The Hate Monger! Sha Shan and Korba are revealed to be pawns, setting the stage for the Hate-Monger to use the upcoming Legion of Light telecast as a medium for his hateful propaganda.

Reprinted/Collected in:
Essential Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man (2005) TPB vol. 01
Ihmesarja (2002) #11

Notes:
Introduces the character of Razorback AKA Buford Hollis who hails from Texarkana, Arkansas and who seasons his speech with CB Radio jargon and down-home folksy expressions.

The Spectacular Spider-Mail features three letters commenting on PPTSS #9 and the White Tiger's color comic debut. Bill Mantlo himself writes a lengthy comment concerning the White Tiger, crediting his co-creator George Perez and thanking all those who brought the strip to life in THE DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG FU magazine.
