366 Days with J. Jonah Jameson, Day 344: Jonah Noir

Another excellent J. Jonah Jameson story I'm only managing to squeeze in just before the midnight clock of December 31 chimes is this Jonah-narrated comic in which your favorite newspaperman and mine takes center stage:

Cover of Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #80 (July 1983); pencils by John Romita, Jr., inks by John Beatty

You know, I could print every single furschluggin panel from this comic book and it'd be a great spotlight on Jonah, but instead I'll just focus on the first two cinematic pages and give you this handy tip to hunt down Peter Parker #80 and get yerself hunka hunka Jonah love. You heard it from me, Bully, cookie reviewer for The Daily Bugle.

"You mean "its publisher", Jonah, not "it's publisher."
"There's an apostrophe where there shouldn't be."
"*sput-sputter-sput*... It's... It's that blasted Spider-Man's fault!"
