Amazing Spider-man annual #15 - Frank Miller art & cover

Frank Miller
Amazing Spider-man v1 annual #15, 1981 - When a fraudulent swami develops a deadly toxin, Doctor Octopus seizes it to threaten five million citizens of New York City. Spider-man and the Punisher both intervene to prevent the disaster. Despite the serious theme, there are lighter moments throughout the story. Frank Miller handles the various moods deftly, drawing and designing pages with superlative skill. Front page editions of the Daily Bugle are interspersed throughout, cleverly used as chapter dividers. Miller's cover idea is both clever and amusing (Doc Ock reads the morning paper), but it's the interior pages that feature some of his most brilliant work. This is number 2 of 2 Amazing Spider-man annual issues with Miller art and/or covers.
