The Spectacular Spider-Man is on fire in Chinatown! And hurtling towards the East River to save his life! Thankfully, the murky waters extinguish the flames and give the wall-crawler a chance to regroup! The following night the web-slinger returns to the Lower East Side to battle the White Dragon again! Will the way of the spider or the way of the (white) dragon prevail? Second story: At long last Peter Parker's graduation day from Empire State University is here! But Peter may want to check one more time with the registrars office...before walking across the stage! Cameo appearances by J. Jonah Jameson, Flash Thompson, Harry Osborn, Betty Brant, Joe Robertson, and Aunt May. (Notes: The White Dragon appears next in Marvel Team-Up 144. This issue concludes Ross Andru's remarkable 5-year run as the penciler of the Amazing Spider-Man series -- highlighted by the original clone saga and the creations of the Punisher, Jackal, and Tarantula.) 32 pages.
