Published May 1985 by Marvel.
"Red 9 and Red Tape!" Script by Craig Anderson. Art by Paty Cockrum. Cover by William Johnson and Joe Rubinstein. It's an off-beat tale as the Amazing Spider-Man takes on a double menace! A crazy football player from Baytown, Texas; and the New York state healthcare system! Unbelievable! Where are Doc Ock and the Hobgoblin when you really need them? The two storylines intertwine after Red 9 and the web-slinger crash through a hospital window! As Spider-Man attempts to clean up the broken glass, he learns that the grumpy old man in the room is about to be discharged...because the state thinks he's dead! In good conscious the wall-crawler can't let that happen! If Spidey can blitz the bureaucrats and avoid Red 9's tackles, he might just create a happy ending for all!
