Issue(s): Sub-Mariner #40
There are characters with names like Tuvia...
...and even a Stephan Tuval...
...who remotely shuts down the entire story from afar with a mind bolt...
...so i'm sort of inclined to like him even though we don't learn much about him this issue (unlike the other characters, he'll appear in a few more stories, including one that'll make this one read like the Cliff Notes for One Fish, Two Fish, but as of right now, he's on our side).
I'll dig in a little deeper than i think i'm obligated to and mention that we're in another dimension (i think) populated by the people of the Black Sea, who were once Atlanteans but were exiled long ago for worshiping flying monkey snakes.
Turalla, the "Chosen One", is both a massive fighter and also a mutant telepath.
Stephan Tuval is the long lost brother of the dead king of the Black Sea people.
Finally, "Spider-Man" is an apparently humorless mope whose job is to stand around in the background and gripe about stuff.
If you like wispy backgrounds and inconsequential mystical adventures, this one's for you.
Quality Rating: D
Chronological Placement Considerations: Directly continues from Daredevil #77. The MCP places Spider-Man here between ASM #94-95.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
You're missing some Daredevil issues? Oh, no, does mean we won't see the awesomeness of the entire Mr. Kline story?
The horror, the horror...

Trippin', but it could use a little more purple here and there.

@Holt- Yeah, seems like the colorist had a purple haze all up in his brain (MUCH love and respect, Jimi, wherever you are!):-)
