Spectacular Spider-Man Vol.1 #9


The Empire State University president is closing down the campus' night school, and the student body is very upset! The students want ESU to sell the prized Erskine Manuscripts to raise money. When the White Tiger apparently steals the manuscripts, tempers on campus reach a boiling point...and also set the White Tiger and the web-slinger on a collision course!
